APPROACH CONTROL – NON RADAR, ICAO 053

Course aim

The course is designed to impart knowledge and skills to student air traffic controllers in order to enable them to receive a student certificate of competency for the ICAO Approach Control rating.

Course objectives

After completion of the course, the ATC student has:
  • The knowledge, skills and understanding in accordance with the course content outlined briefly below (see Content in brief).
  • The skills to manage traffic safely and according to the rules and regulations, providing an orderly and expeditious approach control service in an approach procedural environment.
  • The skills that are necessary to work in a team.

Course overview

Theory

Theoretical events are followed by practical applications in a classroom and in a simulator.

The theoretical parts in this course cover new objectives containing mainly procedural separations as well as reviews and enhancements of subjects from the ICAO 051 course.

The number of training events is based on the assumption that all students on this course have completed an Air Traffic Control Assistant/ Basic Induction Course (ICAO 051).

Human factors, airspace classes C and D, and system degradation are included in all parts of the module.

Simulator training

The simulator training is conducted in an approach procedural simulator and consists of individual exercises.

The airspace/aerodrome is generic and simulates traffic in an approach procedural environment, with one active airport and an adjacent area control centre with radar service.

Prerequisites

  • English language proficiency (minimum ICAO level 4).
  • Approved results from an Air Traffic Control Assistant/ Basic Induction course ICAO 051 at Entry Point North or another training facility.

Compliance with regulations

  • The course is compliant with ICAO standards and recommended practices.
  • Entry Point North training academy is certified by the Swedish CAA.
