DALLAS — Boeing has announced an agreement with CAE to see the latter become the US manufacturer’s Authorised Training Provider. The announcement, revealed today on the first day of the Paris Air Show, will see CAE become the first to provide Boeing’s Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) curriculum. India will become the first location to offer the new training process with CAE, “with expansion anticipated into additional global markets.”
