SENASA presents their academic certificates to a new class of air traffic controllers, who finish their initial training at SENASA's ATC Training Center, after having successfully passed the different phases of the program. This is the XIII promotion of Approach and Route air traffic controllers, in which a total of ten students - four women and six men - has been trained for 28 weeks. This group has developed its learning at SENASA’s facilities, which include replica simulators, as well as the equipment and software (SACTA), all used by ENAIRE and under the EU requirements included in the European Regulation 340/2015.
The closing ceremony of the course was chaired by the president of SENASA, Andrés Arranz, who presented the academic certificates along with the head of the ATC Development and Training division of ENAIRE, Francisca Cervera. The director of Air Navigation and Operations of SENASA, Francisco Vergara, also participated in the closing ceremony of this course. The graduation ceremony was also attended by representatives of the USCA and APROCTA professional organizations, as well as some of the instructors who have trained these new airspace controllers.
This promotion’s students will obtain their licenses of Approach and Route control ratings (APP, APS, ACP and ACS). This will allow them to join the unit formation in the different air control units distributed throughout the Spanish territory.
