ATSEP QUALIFICATION, SUR COMBINED

Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel

Course aim

The course is designed to impart domain-related knowledge and skills appropriate to the Surveillance (SUR) qualification streams (SUR-PSR, SUR-SSR, SUR-ADS) 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 in accordance with the EUROCONTROL Specification for Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel Common Core Content Initial Training Annex 4.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the importance of teamwork.

Course overview

The duration of the course is eight days. 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 SUR equipment.

Entry Point North offers the ATSEP qualification SUR Combined course, i.e. a course covering all ATSEP qualification SUR streams, as well as courses comprising the individual streams (SUR-PSR, SUR-SSR, SUR-ADS).

Prerequisites

ATSEP Basic.

Compliance with regulations

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