Acumen Aviation and Aerospace and Aviation Skill Sector Council (AASSC) Sign MOU to Jointly Launch Certificate and Diploma Programs

Dublin – 20-12-2021 – Acumen Aviation (“Acumen”) announces the signing of a partnership MoU with Aerospace and Aviation Skill Sector Council (AASSC) India, to jointly launch various short term certification and diploma programs in the aircraft leasing & financing sector. The programs are anticipated to commence from early in the New Year.

The new short certificate programs encompass all the facets of aircraft leasing and financing domains.

The India Government ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ policy is for the development of skilled professionals to meet growing demand in the aviation leasing and financing sector.

Acumen Chairman & CEO, Alok Anand stated “Given the kind of growth Indian Aviation is witnessing with a big focus on aircraft leasing and financing as an industry, Acumen’s training programs in association with AASSC will go a long way in providing the necessary skill development support. These courses will benefit the aviation community as well as financial, legal and banking professionals interested in aircraft leasing and financing.”

Aviation Sector Skill Council (AASSC) CEO, Rachit Bhatnagar stated It is bright and blue skies today at Bengaluru, which is an indication of clear weather to take off our partnership to soaring heights. I take this opportunity to congratulate team AASSC and team Acumen who have worked tirelessly to make this partnership happen today. This is also a small step to make India Atmanirbhar (self-reliant) by creating skill development ecosystem in this largely alien field till recently. We have been making framework for some of the traditional job roles in aviation and aerospace, but this partnership would make us more relevant and enable us to diversify into more evolving industry trends like we are also doing for Drones presently. With this joint certification we intend to create more value for the learners, and we would also align ourselves with our PM’s vision of boosting an ecosystem of aircraft leasing and financing in the country.”
