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 EUROCONTROL Specification for ATSEP CCC Initial Training.

Course objectives

After completion of the course, participants have:
  • Knowledge and understanding of the subjects described below (see Content in brief) in accordance with the EUROCONTROL Specification 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 ten 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.

Prerequisites

ATSEP Basic.

Compliance with regulations

The course is compliant with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/373 Annex XIII, subpart A.
