Under the agreement, the two sides commit to developing educational programs, study plans and awarding specialized certificates in the field of aviation science and aircraft maintenance. Through its expertise, JORAMCO will provide HTU with technical knowledge, training programs and workshops through JORAMCO Academy, the educational and training arm of the company.

Highlighting the importance of this cooperation, Amjad Korshlow, Acting CEO of JORAMCO, said that the agreement is a unique model which will strengthen the ties between higher education institutions and private sector, and will also harmonize the outputs of higher education with the needs of the labor market.
