Madrid, May 11th, 2020
SENASA has started today a new edition of its Initial Training Course for Tower, Approach and Area Controllers, which will have 37 students and will last 47 school weeks.
As a novelty, this promotion of students will carry out the first phase of the program, corresponding to basic theory, in telematic format using videoconference technology. This is an initiative launched by SENASA in order to maintain its quality training standards in a time of health emergency like the current one.
The course will be delivered by the staff of SENASA instructors, made up of professionals with several years of experience in Spanish towers and control centers. Likewise, for practical training, the center will have, as in other editions, replica tower and radar simulators similar to those used in the actual ENAIRE work units.
SENASA is certified by the State Aviation Safety Agency (AESA) as a training center for air traffic controllers in all tower (ADI, ADV), approach (APP, APS) and route (ACP, ACS) ratings. Since its birth in 1992, it has trained more than 2,000 air traffic controllers, which represent practically all the personnel who manage traffic in Spanish dependencies.
After almost three decades of experience, it has the appropriate infrastructure, knowledge and professionals to continue being a world benchmark in the delivery of top quality control courses.
