In the following newsletter issues, we will put the spotlights on one of our academies where we highlight current activities and developments. We kick off the series with Entry Point North Spain, our ATS academy in Madrid where we offer high-quality Air Traffic Controller Training to the Spanish market.
Currently we have students who are already experienced tower controllers participating in a ratings program (APS, ACS(TCL), APP/ACP and GMS courses). Students are very satisfied with the instructors and course content and are quite eager to learn more. In 2019 we will start offering new Initial ATC course programs in connection to a recently started recruiting process by the Spanish Air navigation service provider ENAIRE. To deliver these courses, Entry Point North Spain and Nelso Formación join forces where Nelso Formación acts as a sales channel and promotes our courses at the Spanish market. Furthermore, Nelso will provide Spanish ATCO instructors for the simulator training should it be needed.
Additionally, Entry Point North Spain is a location which has capacity for international clients and courses. For example, this year we have offered ATC Refresher training to 77 operational Air Traffic Controllers (ATCOs) of Albcontrol, which included Area, Approach and Tower Refresher courses.
