Aviation news update – IATA grants Rwanda’s RTUC exam status


The International Air Transport Association has granted the Rwanda Tourism University College the status of an examination centre for the regular IATA courses, lifting the status of RTUC to the next level. While teaching at the college of relevant topics and courses has been going on for some time already, students had to go to Nairobi to sit for their exams, causing substantial added cost for the students and their sponsors.

Being granted examination status will now permit RTUC to carry out ‘in house’ exams for their students, and those of other institutions offering relevant courses, a move which will undoubtedly spur added interest in a career in aviation and related services.

It is expected that foreign students from for instance neighbouring Burundi and Congo DR may also be referred from now on to the Kigali examination centre after completing their course studies.

Small country but Big Spirit and Great Vision.
