New ATC BASIC Course Welcomed at CANI for Future ACC Controllers
The Civil Aviation Navigation Institute (CANI) recently welcomed a new group of participants to its Air Traffic Control (ATC) BASIC course, which aims to prepare future Area Control Center (ACC) controllers for their roles in the aviation industry. The course began at the start of December, with a mixture of participants who came from an aviation background, and those who are completely new to the industry.
The ATC BASIC course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for them to perform their roles as ACC controllers. Participants will learn about airspace management, air traffic flow control, communication, navigation, and surveillance. The course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of ATC, including simulation exercises that simulate real-world scenarios.
From the very first days of the course, it was evident that the participants were a good group, which is an essential aspect for everyone to finish the training successfully. Participants were able to interact and support one another, creating a positive atmosphere for learning. This group dynamic is crucial in the aviation industry, where team communication and coordination are essential for safe and efficient flight operations.
The course participants come from diverse backgrounds, and some have never been exposed to aviation before. However, the positive start to the training indicates that they are all committed to learning and developing the skills necessary to succeed in their roles. By the end of the course, participants should be able to demonstrate their proficiency in managing airspace, ensuring the safe and efficient flow of air traffic, and effectively communicating with pilots and other air traffic controllers.
The CANI ATC BASIC course is an important step for future ACC controllers, as it provides them with the fundamental knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their roles. With a positive start to the course, the participants are well on their way to completing the training successfully and contributing to the aviation industry's safe and efficient operations.
