Air traffic controllers receive training in Zaria

29 September 2015, 06:52Augustine Osayande

Abuja  - The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) is training some air traffic controllers in a move aimed at boosting its capacity.

The controllers are undergoing training on a combined Terminal Approach Surveillance Radar/Area Airways Surveillance Radar course at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) in Zaria.

The training would boost capacity of existing manpower in Air Traffic Management for the implementation of Performance Based Navigation (PBN).

The combined course, which is making its debut in Nigeria, is scheduled to last for ten weeks.

Managing Director of NAMA, Ibrahim Abdulsalam, noted that the combined radar course was another milestone in Nigerian aviation.

It is the result of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed recently with NCAT in keeping with the Federal Government's policy on training.

Abdulsalam revealed there were  40 Air Traffic Controllers presently undergoing the Basic Air Traffic Control Course at NCAT Zaria.

He added that some experienced field officers are also being sent to the NCAT to help in monitoring the progress of training in the college.

He charged participants to justify the huge investment NAMA was making in human capital development by showing commitment and dedication to their studies.
