A financial and management accountant by background, Amrul trained and worked in the UK, prior to his return to Malaysia where he served with Pricewaterhouse (later PwC) Malaysia in advisory and consulting. He later joined the corporate sector with one of the larger conglomerates specialising in reorganisation and restructuring work.
With a strong background in processes and procedures, he joined Dilog Group of companies in 2002, managing the business of maintenance technical training for the military, and currently, for civil aviation. In setting up Malaysia’s first approved training organisation under DCA Malaysia’s (now CAAM) new licencing system, Amrul drove the company via a training philosophy in producing distinctive and quality manpower coupled with an overall objective of elevating the stature of the professionals of the aircraft maintenance workforce.
Amrul has recently joined a dynamic management team at Malaysia’s latest MRO set up for narrow body aircraft maintenance based in Senai Airport, Johor, the most southern state of West Malaysia. He is now responsible in implementing a new manpower system for base maintenance capitalising on Part 66 licenced manpower.
Amrul regularly speaks at various regional aviation aircraft maintenance and training conferences, with his area of expertise being manpower and manpower training for MROs. Having influenced the change in manpower training, he targets to complete the loop by enhancing Malaysia’s aviation MRO system to be competitive for the global playing field.
