ATC Training Centre
The Aviation Training Academy (ATA), was formed in 1995 to provide ATC training, aviation related training as well as a complete spectrum of technical training courses required for air traffic control, engineering support and airports at the ATC Training centre. Since its inception the ATA has continued to expand its ATC training client base and is now proudly training delegates from Africa and several international countries.
It is the mission of the ATA to provide a comprehensive and affordable range of applicable air navigation services training exceeding customer needs in accordance with regulatory regional and international standards.
The ATA also offers a service to its clients by examining their unique training needs and adapting the required training to the customer specific environment. Such training needs may also be offered on site (at client location or premises).
The ATA maintains amongst others an ISO 9001 / 2000 accreditation which makes it a recognised and world-class training institution. The ATA fully subscribes to ICAO Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPS) and requirements.
Our clients are assured that training is conducted in line with international standards. The ATA also strategically selects its global partners in order to ensure that the best training standards are upheld. These partnerships provide the ATA with opportunities to review current and develop new courses as required by its clients.
