Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has approved the resumption of physical classes at the Lagos Aviation Academy effective August 4, 2020.

 

The approval to restart operations at LAA came on the heels of meeting the required standards set by the NCAA. The Academy has also carried out COVID-19 facility disinfection and has been certified safe to operate.

 

“We are pleased to announce that the NCAA has approved the resumption of physical classes at Lagos Aviation Academy upon the inspection of our facility, said General Manager, Lagos Aviation Academy, Chinasa Mbene. To ensure the safety of staff and students, we have put biosecurity measures in place, which include a ‘No mask, no entry’ policy. Likewise, all students, staff, and visitors will be required to wash their hands, and do a temperature check before entering into our facility.” 

 

“We have stationed hand sanitizers at key areas within the school, and have also put measures in place to ensure social distancing in the classrooms, kitchenette, and other public areas. We understand that adjusting to the new normal is relatively new to everyone, but we promise to guide our students all the way,” Ms. Mbene, further stressed.

In a related manner, LAA is set to commence virtual classes for students, as announced in the first quarter of 2020. This is in line with the Academy’s vision to make learning easy and flexible for its students. To launch this, the academy will be hosting free online masterclasses for interested participants on August 15 & 19, 2020.

As we have announced earlier, some courses would not be made available online due to the technicalities and practicals involved. However, we have made preparations for courses like the Basic Ticketing and Reservation Course, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Managing the Travel Business Course, IATA Foundation Course, and others.”
