Classroom and e-learning aviation training courses

Sharing our knowledge and experience with our stakeholders.


We provide training for air traffic management staff, regulators, aircraft operators, flow management personnel and aviation experts.

  • Communications, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) 
    Our instructors are involved in various SESAR research or NM deployment programmes and have access to both the project content and programme managers,

Training methods

We have years of experience both in traditional training and in applying innovative methods of delivery as well as other forms of knowledge transfer.

Classroom training

Classroom training has all the advantages of face-to-face communication between trainer and trainee. It makes for a professional exchange with participants from different organisations, and facilitates networking on a European level.
ATM Training courses are held at the EUROCONTROL Aviation Learning Centre in Luxembourg, while Network Operations training courses are held in Brussels. Our courses can also be held at the customer’s premises.


As a method of training, e-learning offers a variety of benefits such as reduced costs and delivery at a pace ideally suited to the students’ individual progress-learning. EUROCONTROL delivers a wide range of e-learning courses, which are accessible worldwide on just a few clicks.

Virtual classroom courses

Virtual courses take place via online meeting software, so do not require travelling. They usually are also limited to a few hours a day, allowing participants to plan other commitments around them. We aim to achieve a similar level of interactivity during a virtual course as during a classroom course, with quizzes and group activities. Some preparation work in-between the online sessions might be required.


A webinar is one session of up to 2 hours covering one topic for a large audience. While we aim to include some interactivity, it cannot be as interactive nor cover material in the same depth as a virtual course which lasts a number of sessions over a number of days with a limited number of participants. Note that webinars are considered informal learning activities so do not award a certificate, unlike (virtual) courses.


Apart from the general online and classroom courses, the EUROCONTROL Aviation Learning Centre also provides tailor-made courses.

Network operations training

Network Operations training is a sub-set of EUROCONTROL's training courses.  It has been specifically developed to support operational users collaborating with the NMOC (Network Manager Operations Centre in Brussels). Indeed, efficient collaborative decision-making (CDM) requires a high level of knowledge on the part of all operational staff involved, those in NM and in the ATC and aircraft operator communities.
