The high quality of engineering personnel available to maintain Qantas and customer aircraft, engines and components is the direct result of the priority Qantas gives to all aspects of training.
Qantas has long been willing to share its technical and management expertise with other operators throughout the world. This is achieved principally by the continuous training of apprentices, tradesmen, licenced engineers and instructors in Australia or at the customer's home base.
Qantas Technical Training offers a comprehensive range of classroom and on the job training programs relevant to industry developments and specific customer needs.
Flexible, comprehensive training, as well as modular packages are available and can be tailored to meet specific customer requirements.
