This will prepare the participants for their upcoming working environments.
Javier Fernández Montes, president of ICADA and the associated ADA-ITS, comments, “The agreement just signed with Lufthansa Technical Training represents a significant step forward in our training of future aircraft maintenance technicians. This promising agreement is the first foundation stone for future successful common projects, thanks to the long and recognized experience of Lufthansa Technical Training.”
