NAMA trains 16 ATCs on procedural air traffic control

The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has successfully trained another batch of 16 Air Traffic Controllers in Area Airways Non-Radar course at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria.

This is in line with keeping its determination to continuously strengthen capacity of personnel in the critical area of operations.
The three-month course which began in June and ended in August 2015 had participants drawn from airports across the country and was titled ACC 34, the non-radar training is designed to equip Air Traffic Controllers with the ability to control traffic procedurally in the event of radar failure.  The Managing Director of NAMA, Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam, who was represented at the graduation in Zaria by the Director of Operations, Mr Uzoma-fyneboy congratulated the course participants for “studying hard to achieve success in flying colours.”
Engr. Abdulsalam in a statement maintained that NAMA would “continue to give priority to training and retraining of staff especially in operations to effectively man the sophisticated air traffic management infrastructure deployed by the agency.”
It will be recalled that a total of 40 Air Traffic Controllers had early this year been rated by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) while 12 ATC Cadets graduated from the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology and proceeded for on-the-job training, just as another 17 Air Traffic Engineers graduated from the same institution after undergoing a three-month course designed to equip them in handling CNS/ATM as well as ICT equipment of the agency.
