ADNOC Distribution’s Training Facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport Receives Joint Inspection Group Accreditation
ADNOC Distribution’s Aviation Operations Division has achieved the Joint Inspection Group (JIG) accreditation for its training centre at the Abu Dhabi International Airport. The accreditation entitles the Division’s training facility to host JIG approved training courses for its international oil supplier members.
The landmark achievement by the Aviation Operation Division follows ADNOC Distribution’s successful hosting of the Joint Inspection Group workshop in December 2014 at its training and operations facility. The Joint Inspection Group comprises members of global blue-chip companies engaged in the aviation fueling services domain. The leading forum mandate is to establish and enhance standards for the safe handling and quality control of aviation fuels globally, and that those standards are recognised and endorsed by all parties with a stake in the industry. Abdulla Salem Al Dhaheri, CEO of ADNOC Distribution, said: “With this milestone ADNOC Distribution has reinforced its commitment towards developing human resources and operational capacities of the highest caliber. The accreditation received by our Aviation Operations Division from the Joint Inspection Group will facilitate the shaping of our training facility into a regional hub for qualifying and training international inspectors.
“The recognition validates the world class standards of our facility in preparing highly trained aviation professionals, and will help ADNOC Distribution extend valuable technical and occupational support to our customers and partners.”
