HRDF - Secondment Programme

Kindly note that a Secondment Programme to !CAO of serving African aviation professionals who will contribute to the work of !CAO and, at the same time, upgrade their knowledge, skills and expertise in order to better assist African States in meeting the requirements for the effective implementation of !CAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and other !CAO Programme activities has been established by AFCAC and ICAO.

Taking ICAO Work Programme into account and the voluntary contributions received thus far, I am pleased to announce ten new secondment opportunities for 2018 under the HRDF mechanism at ICAO Headquarters in Montreal and at the Regional Offices in Nairobi and Dakar.

Furthermore, AFCAC has identified these priority technical areas in which African States will require assistance and in which the Secondees will improve their knowledge and expertise:

•  Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation (AIG)

•  Airworthiness (AIR)

•  Aerodrome and Ground Aids (AGA)

•  Air Navigation Services (ANS)

•  Aircraft Flight Operations (OPS)

•  Aeronautical Personnel Licensing (PEL)

•  Aviation Security and Facilitation (ASF)

•  Environmental Protection (ENV)

•  Air Transport (Infrastructure Management).


In this regard, your State is invited to nominate a maximum of two (2) suitable aviation professionals. Your Letter of nomination should be directed to the ICAO Secretary General, with a clear indication of the specific secondment opportunity and location for which the nomination is being made, and including the Curricula Vitae (CV) of the nominees as well as their motivation letters summarizing their professional achievements and career aspirations

Kindly note that the deadline for submission of nominations is now 30 November, 2017 and nominations received after this deadline will not be entertained.

Thus, your State is strongly encouraged to take advantage of these capacity-building opportunities which aim to assist in enhancing the overall effective implementation of ICAO SARPs in Africa and will consequently have favourable impact on the overall safety and security of the African civil aviation sector.

Finally, AFCAC wishes to take this opportunity again to extend my appreciation to the States and International Organizations which have made voluntary contributions to the HRDF and to encourage and motivate all African States to support this important capacity-building initiative by making a financial contribution to the Fund to ensure its continuity and sustainability.
