The 4th Batch of students who completed the “Diploma in Aviation Studies” Programme at the CATC were awarded their diploma at a glittering ceremony held at the CATC Auditorium on Friday the 11th December 2015. Chairman AASL Eng. Saman Ediriweera was the Chief Guest at the occasion. Vice Chairman Mr. Ranjith De Silva, Executive Director Mr. Johanne Jayaratne, several other directors, heads of divisions and senior officers of AASL and the parents were present.

This programme was inaugurated in 2011 to cater to the human resource needs at middle management and supervisory levels in the general trades of the aviation industry. In addition to providing a thorough overall knowledge on the industry the participants are also taught the fundamentals of operations management, planning and scheduling skills, analytical techniques and a global citizen’s outlook so that they can take up employment even overseas.

In his ceremonial oration, Chairman AASL, Eng. Ediriweera impressed upon the diploma holders the value of integrity and advised them to decorate themselves with that virtue. (click here for the full text of the oration)
