Joint EASA-EUROCONTROL workshop reaches global audience

The EUROCONTROL Aviation Learning Centre (ALC) attracted a global audience of 122 aviation experts from 65 organisations and 32 countries for a joint “Training for Success” workshop that explored how CBTA (Competency Based Training and Assessment) can be introduced into how air traffic controllers (ATCOs) are trained.

CBTA is regarded by ICAO, the International Civil Aviation Organization, as the best way of designing and implementing training and assessment programmes for aviation personnel, with the potential to improve ATCO pass rates, and to help air navigation service providers (ANSPs) deliver performance levels by meeting their airspace capacity targets. Global adoption of CBTA would also enable reliable and mutual recognition of ATCO licences.

The co-hosted CBTA workshop at the EUROCONTROL ALC, which was delivered as part of our strengthening learning partnership with EASA, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, provided participants from ANSPs, ATCO training organisations & national regulators with an update on the EASA regulatory proposal, key insights from early CBTA implementers on challenges & successes, and took a look at experience with implementing CBTA in other aviation domains.
