Within the framework of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with Korea Polytechnics (KOPO) in November 2019, Lufthansa Technical Training has started the first phase of the consulting project. First of all, the current status of KOPO's training center in Namincheon, near Seoul, South Korea, will be evaluated. The consulting service is mainly supported by our Lufthansa Technical Training branch in Taiwan; due to current travel restrictions, meetings will be held via online video communication from Germany or Taiwan. In the second phase the implementation of EASA CAT A training courses at KOPO will be realized next year. The development of EASA CAT A training standards at KOPO is based on an initiative of the Korean government. Within the scope of the joint project, the Korean government intends to further expand the aircraft maintenance capabilities in the so-called "New MRO Complex" at Incheon Airport in Seoul, Korea.
Korea Polytechnics is one of the largest universities in Korea with over 35 campuses spread across Korea. Programs range from bachelor's to master's degrees and TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) programs are offered.
