ATSEP QUALIFICATION, NAV COMBINED

Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel

Course aim

The course is designed to impart domain-related knowledge and skills appropriate to the Navigation (NAV) qualification streams in accordance with the UROCONTROL Specifications for ATSEP CCC Initial Training.

Our standard ATSEP Qualification NAV Combined course comprises NAV-VOR, NAV-DME and NAV-ILS streams - other streams (NAV-NDB, NAV-DF, NAV-MLS) can be added upon client's request.

In addition to the ATSEP NAV Combined course, Entry Point North also offers courses comprising the individual streams.

Course objectives

After completion of the course, participants shall have:
  • Knowledge and understanding of the subjects described below (see Content in brief) in accordance with the EUROCONTROL Specifications for Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel Common Core Content Initial Training Annex 3.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the importance of teamwork.

Course overview

Our standard ATSEP Qualification NAV Combined course comprises NAV-VOR, NAV-DME and NAV-ILS streams - the duration of the course is 10 days. Other streams (NAV-NDB, NAV-DF, NAV-MLS) can be added upon client’s request.

In addition to the ATSEP NAV Combined course, Entry Point North also offers courses comprising the individual streams.

The competency-based training consists of theoretical lessons and is delivered by professional international instructors. The theory comprises individual topics covering various aspects of operating and maintaining NAV equipment.
