AIS Training Upskills Omani Military

We have joined forces with UK defence training specialist, Sterling Training to provide Oman’s Air Force personnel with specialist engineering skills.

A number of engineers from the Royal Air Force of Oman have been trained in world-recognised welding and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques with us in the UK as part of a new drive to recognise and boost their skills.

Emma Lacey, manager director at Sterling Training, said: “When a client is seeking specialised training that we can’t deliver in-house, we look for a commercial or military training partner.  Our rigorous selection process found AIS Training to be the best provider in this instance because of its excellent trainers, top class facilities and the ability to provide the internationally-recognised qualifications we needed. The onsite hotel makes it all very convenient indeed.

“The level of support from AIS Training has been exceptional.  We are hoping to develop more training programmes together in the future to serve similar clients.”

Dave Brannon, business development manager at AIS Training, said: “We were delighted to work closely with Sterling Training to deliver this prestigious project. The Omanis had very specific training requirements and we tailored a programme to suit their needs.”
