On Wednesday March 9th, within the World ATM Congress 2016 in Madrid, Philippe CREBASSA (ENAC Vice President) and Jan KLAS (ANS CR Director General) signed the cooperation agreement to jointly deliver the “ATM Managerial Development Training” regional programme. The first session will be launched at CANI, the training institute of ANS CR, in February 2017 in Prague.

Air Navigation Service Providers have similar issues regarding managerial competencies within their organisation and the promotion of career development for their ATCOs and their ATSEPs personnel.

In such a context, ENAC and CANI will offer an Advanced Professional Certificate in ATM Managerial Development Training that will prepare a new generation of managers to face the upcoming performance challenges, while ensuring safe and efficient operations.
The objective of this programme is to provide experienced ATCOs and ATSEPs relevant training that will enable them to take managerial positions within the ANSP.

It will be based upon seven 5-day modules, between Prague and Toulouse, over a total period of 18 months. People will be able to follow the programme while performing their daily duties as the executive format consists of one module per quarter.

Jan KLAS: “We believe that in the ATM training, cooperation of the providers is a key aspect for an innovative approach. By mutualizing our resources we can offer an economically optimized solution to key human resource management issues. We are confident that bringing the future managers together will enhance synergies within the ATM community and support regional harmonization.”

Philippe CREBASSA stated that “CANI and ENAC both have internationally recognized experience in education for the air navigation community. To address urgent needs in management capacities, we will offer a brand new training solution focusing on enhancing their perception of the ATM big picture, leadership skills and cross culture”.
