Morocco’s Specialist Institute for Aeronautical Sector Employment will now focus specifically on training workers for aircraft maintenance and repair.
Rabat – The Moroccan Aeronautic and Space Industry Group (GIMAS) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the State, relating to the governance of the Specialist Institute for Aeronautical Sector Employment (ISMALA).
The memorandum was signed today in Rabat between GIMAS, the Ministry for Industry, the Ministry for Education and the Office for Professional Training and Job Promotions (OFPPT).
It sets up a partnership between GIMAS and OFPPT to create a new entity that will be responsible for the management of ISMALA.
ISMALA was set up in September 2013 to provide specialist training in the aeronautical industry.
Under the new governance framework, the institute will focus specifically on training workers for aircraft maintenance and repair. ISMALA will work alongside the Institute for Aeronautical Work, a center that trains workers on specific aeronautical industry needs, for instance electrical work, and will soon also include a middle-management school.
According to Loubna Tricha, the president of GIMAS, the purpose of today’s memorandum is to ensure ISMALA is best placed to respond to any changes in workplace needs in Morocco’s growing aeronautical sector.
