Prior to this examination, they had also successfully undergone a three-month ATSEP License Preparatory Course between July and October, 2015, at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria.
 The ATSEP course which came in Seven Modules treated topics in Meteorology, Avionics, Aircraft Systems, Air Traffic Control Operations, Aeronautical Communications, Navaids, Surveillance and Electromechanical systems.
 In a statement, the Managing Director of NAMA Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam, congratulated the engineers for “displaying extreme commitment to the goal of improved air safety in Nigeria by taking their studies seriously’’.

 

Engr. Abdulsalam noted “with major milestones so far recorded by the agency in digitalizing Air Traffic Management as evident in the deployment of ADS-C/ CPDLC and Safe Towers in the nation’s airspace, management has no option than to adequately enhance technical and operational capacity to man these new technologies in line with world best practices.’’
