AREA CONTROL AND APPROACH CONTROL – NON-RADAR (PROCEDURAL), ICAO 053 & 055

Course aim

The course is designed to impart knowledge and skills to student air traffic controllers that are necessary for them to receive a student certificate of competency for the ICAO Area Control & Approach Control ratings.

 

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 basic knowledge, skills and understanding to manage traffic safely and according to the rules and regulations of Document 4444, in an area 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 051/054 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), as well as ICAO ACS 054 & ICAO APS 054 or ICAO ADI 052

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.
  • Approved results from an ICAO ACS 054 & ICAO APS 054 courses or an ICAO ADI 052 course at Entry Point North or another training facility.
  • Meeting the authority’s requirement for an ATC license

 

Compliance with regulations

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

 

Content in brief

APPROACH CONTROL – NON RADAR, ICAO 053

Acquire knowledge and skills of approach procedural control. Examples of items and situations taught in classroom and practiced in the simulator:

  • Vertical separations
  • Time based separations
  • Distance based separations
  • VOR lateral separations
  • Holdings
  • Unusual events and emergencies

AREA CONTROL – NON RADAR, ICAO 055

Acquire knowledge and skills of area procedural control. Examples of items and situations taught in classroom and practiced in the simulator:

  • Standard and increased vertical separation
  • Longitudinal and lateral separation
  • Introduction to RNAV separations
  • Separation to holding airspace
  • Holdings
  • Unusual events and emergencies

Continuous assessment will be carried out throughout the course. A theoretical examination will be held at the end of the course.

The simulator exercises will be complemented by briefing/debriefing sessions.
