Air Transport: CCP for Air Transport Professionals and Coordinators
Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
Accurate as of 31 Mar 2024
What is it?

As Singapore strives towards being a smart and highly efficient air hub, companies in the Air Transport sector have begun to transform and adopt digital solutions such as data analytics, robotic systems, and autonomous vehicles etc.  This results in the creation of new job roles, while other job roles would need to be transformed and redesigned to be in line with the technological advancements.

The Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for Air Transport Professionals and Coordinators is targeted at mid-career switchers to undergo skills conversion and take on new roles in Airport Operations, Airline Operations and Management, and Ground Handling.


Administered by the SAAA@Singapore (SAAA), the CCP operates under the following modes:

  1. Place-and-Train: Reskill new hires in their new roles to support the business growth.
  2. Redeployment (Existing Staff*): Targeted at companies that are undergoing business transformation/restructuring to retain existing staff facing immediate risk of displacement. Staff will be reskilled to prepare them for the new roles.
  3. Job Redesign Reskilling (Existing Staff*): Targeted at companies that are undergoing business transformation to reskill existing staff, where roles will be redesigned/ enhanced to remain relevant.

*at least 1 year in employment


Under the CCP for Air Transport Professionals and Coordinators, participants will undergo a structured On-the-Job Training (OJT) at the company. Upon successful completion of the CCP, participants would be equipped with the necessary competencies and skills to take on job roles within the Air Transport sector.
