Air Technical Training School (ATTS)

The school was founded in 1949 by combining three existing schools which were under RTAF sponsorship and placing this new school under the control of Directorate of Education and Training. In addition to the focus on Aircraft Mechanics, Communication and Electronics and Ground Security, the scope was broadened to include other fields of study as well. In 1952, the name of the school was changed to reflect this broadened focus. So the new name is "Air Technical Training School" (ATTS.) In 1967, the school assumed its present name, ATTS.
