ICAO Standard ATC Courses


ICAO Examiner (059)

The course prepares the air traffic controller for conducting assessments and examinations of trainee air traffic controllers.

Entrants will be trained to complete assessments of trainees engaged in initial unit training.

The course is conducted by experienced ITO examiners and will encompass current training philosophies, particularly the application of the Unit Training Plan (UTP).

Entrants will be assessed on all simulated, practical and oral test exercises to determine their suitability and competence levels. Practical exercises will be carried out using Global ATS’ training airspace, as specific unit procedures will not be simulated or assessed.
