24-25 April, 2013(2 days)
at Entry Point North

During 24-25 April Entry Point North had the pleasure of hosting the first international workshop on ATSEP Training. More than 25 participants from 14 countries attended the event. There were participants from Airports, CNS operators, International ATSEP organisations plus ANSPs and the workshop was evaluated as a great success.The aim of the workshop was to broaden the knowledge on ATSEP training and on the upcoming regulations and to share best practices between different organisations in the world.

The representative from European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) introduced the participants to the upcoming NPA on the need for ATSEP training and certification within the EU. It generated many fruitful discussions among the participants providing new and valuable inputs to the rule making authority.

During the second day the participants actively discussed ATSEP training methodology: the length/depth of training content, e-learning versus classroom training and various future challenges such as harmonisation, cost/safety and technological development.

We strongly believe that this workshop broadened the knowledge on ATSEP training and provided new ideas and inspiration to bring back home.

Thanks to all the participants for making this event a great success!
