Moving from training to learning

This covers
EUROCONTROL Aviation Learning Centre

Our Luxembourg site becomes the EUROCONTROL Aviation Learning Centre.

For over 50 years, EUROCONTROL’s Luxembourg site has been meeting European aviation’s training needs, and with 900,000 course registrations over that time, heading for our millionth enrolment. Our learning journey now continues in 2022 under a new name: the EUROCONTROL Aviation Learning Centre (ALC).

Our new name emphasises our ambition to play a central role in EUROCONTROL’s strategy to support European aviation as a state-of-the-art, multi-channel learning centre, providing services to organisations in Member States and across the world.

It also underlines that the focus of our portfolio has become much broader than purely air traffic management/air navigation services training according to our initial concept as the EUROCONTROL Institute of Air Navigation Services. Nowadays, our aviation learning courses are provided to a broad stakeholder audience, with the 2022 portfolio including a range of programmes such as training for airports; partnership with other bodies like the DAC, Luxembourg’s civil aviation directorate, to certify drone pilots; or our world-renowned ELPAC language proficiency test for pilots.

By replacing the word ‘training’ with ‘learning’ in our new identity, we underline our ambition to deliver value by going beyond the pure provision of training courses, and giving our attendees a best-in-class learning experience, whether through face-to-face courses or via online events. We aim to provide key aviation learning insights that will help all network actors meet the challenges of the future.

Over the coming years the EUROCONTROL ALC will be building on a multi-channel concept that today comprises classroom courses, online courses, webinars and e-learning, and further enhancing our learning portfolio by expanding the range of courses to support new areas such as sustainability, artificial intelligence and drones.

The EUROCONTROL ALC currently offers more than 230 different courses which you can check out and book on our new digital learning management platform, the EUROCONTROL Learning Zone.
