Air Traffic Control
In Air Traffic Control training, students have access to a “state-of-the-art” 3-D aerodrome Control Simulator. The simulator is an integrated part of the aerodrome control course that is based upon ICAO 052 requirements. The course is designed to introduce students to air traffic control procedures, ICAO and its associated regulations, flight navigation, communication procedures, meteorology, Human Factors, Aeronautical Information Services, principles of flight, and navigation equipment. Upon successful completion of the course, students return to their employers for On Job Training (OJT) program which will lead to a local validation and licensing. Each student receives one to one dedicated hours of simulator training.
The Department also delivers training that supports the requirements of ICAO 053 – Approach Non-radar Control, ICAO 054 – Approach and Area/En-route Radar Control, and ICAO 055 – Area/En-route Non-radar Control. The simulator supports this part of training where students begin to appreciate the complexity of controlling in a Non-radar and Radar environment. These courses cover all the regulations, practical techniques and skills required by ICAO for ATC licensing.
The Department also offers refresher and short courses in ATM including: CNS/ATM, RVSM, Instructional techniques, Human Factors in ATC, Search and Rescue, Radio Operations, Aviation Security, Aircraft Accident Investigation, Airport and Ground Safety, Customer Services and Airline Ticketing.
