Result of a partnership between the French Air Force, Aix-Marseilles University and DCI, this training course provides an aeronautical bachelor's degree to foreign officer trainees trained in France at the renowned Air Force School.
To succeed in this challenge, two preliminary years of French language learning and scientific upgrading under the tutorship of certified teachers and ex-servicemen are proposed to these future officers.
“Academic training plays an essential part in structuring elite military personnel. DCI has made it one of the central poles of its activities and we are proud to welcome the first Libyan trainees for their training within the French Air Force,” explained General Denuel, Executive Vice-President of DCI-AIRCO.
“We are hoping this first batch of young trainees will be the start of a fruitful relationship,” he added.
DCI was created in 1972 to assist military equipment sales to foreign countries. Its main mission consisted of providing operational training courses based on the know-how of the French Armed Forces. DCI is an upper medium size service provider in which the French government is the concurring shareholder. DCI now operates throughout the defense and security spectrum. Culturally close to the Ministry of Defense, DCI offers outsourcing services to foreign countries, for:
- Consulting and assistance throughout the life cycle of armament programs.
- Training engineering in the academic, operational and technical fields.
DCI and its subsidiaries have been partners of the French Armed Forces for 10 years within the scope of service contracts and are endeavouring to extend their activities to European Union countries.
