When taken online, in person or through a distance learning program, courses are an essential part of any education. Ranging in length from a few days to several months, higher education courses are offered by thousands of schools and institutions around the world. One excellent choice for those trying to decide what courses to take is air traffic control.
Many students might wonder, what is a course in air traffic control? These courses are designed to teach students the basics of arranging safe and efficient air traffic patterns. A course in air traffic control might often include subjects such as meteorology, communications, aviation regulations and laws, navigation, types of aircraft, and, in some countries, aviation English.
These courses cover many of the different skills and knowledge bases that an air traffic controller might need to do his or her job. This makes potential controllers much more capable of working, enhances their ability to find jobs, and helps them improve their safety and efficiency. These courses can also prove useful for pilots or other aviation professionals who need a deeper understanding of how the air traffic control process works.
The price of taking a course in air traffic control depends on a variety of factors, ranging from the country where the school is located to the requirements of an individual program. Prospective students need to be careful to thoroughly research their desired program so that they can ensure a good financial fit.
Obviously, the most common career choice for those who take courses in air traffic control is an air traffic controller. However, other potential job openings for those who take these courses might include pilots, flight planners, or even instructors and teachers.

Scheduled flight training courses commence quarterly, in January, April, July and October. Special intakes may be offered on request. We offer training to local and international students, and can offer accommodation at our Orly, Ukunda and Malindi stations. Students in Nairobi normally find their own accommodation, but we are able to recommend a number of hostels close to Wilson Airport.
The fee structures given below indicate the approximate minimum cost of each course. Rates are liable to change at very short notice due to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the price of fuel.
All courses are available for both Kenyan residents and students from overseas.

During their studies the students of the speciality of Aviation Communication and Navigation Systems Management (the technicians and engineers-to-be) learn different aviation related disciplines, physics and mathematics. [+]
Air traffic control and dissemination of necessary information takes place by aviation communication systems which ensure safe and smooth flow of air traffic in the air space.
The navigation systems provide information on an aircraft's position and enable precise navigation during the whole flight – from its take-off from the departure aerodrome to the landing at the destination aerodrome. Surveillance equipment and systems are used for the surveillance of the aircraft and their traffic in the air. The most traditional surveillance devices are radars but, alongside, new technologies are taken into use as well – ADS-B and MLAT systems.
During their studies the students of the speciality of Aviation Communication and Navigation Systems Management (the technicians and engineers-to-be) learn different aviation related disciplines, physics and mathematics. They acquire speciality knowledge of electrical engineering and radio technology, electronics, information technology, data processing and of many other fields. During the whole course of studies the practical skills in the management of the systems, the ability to evaluate technical parameters and the skills in testing the devices and equipment are developed. ...

The course for aviation engineers lasts for four years and the volume of studies is 240 ECTS credits. The study process falls into three phases: [+]
In the speciality of Air Traffic Services it is possible to specialize to become an Air Traffic Control Officer (ATCO) whose task is to ensure regular and smooth air traffic in the air space of the country. Air Traffic Control Officers are responsible for arranging safe and efficient air traffic. They manage en-route traffic, help pilots pass other aircraft, find a safe route through the fog or stormy weather and, finally, land safely at the aerodrome. Depending on their rating ATCOs work in different air traffic control units. The studies of the speciality of Air Traffic Services are organised by the Academy Air Traffic Service Training Department. All of the members of our teaching staff have experience in real air traffic control. Our basic aim is to support and develop motivated students in acquiring the profession of an Air Traffic Control Officer.The standard period of study is four years. In the study process the standards of Estonian professional higher education and those of international aviation are followed. The acquiring of the specific procedures and working methods of air traffic control as well as the skills in radio communication takes place in specially equipped laboratories, i.e. in computer-based simulators. In two recent years the practice has taken place in air traffic control units of air traffic service providers. The already practising Air Traffic Control Officers return to the Academy now and then to take the required refresher or continuing education courses.The course for aviation engineers lasts for four years and the...

With this course, you will be able to fly according to the regulations of instrumental flight on certified helicopters.Pre-requisites
This rating can be attended by a private pilot who holds night rating with at least 50 hours of cross-country or a pilot who is training for a CPL modular course, an integrated ATPL course or a pilot who already holds a CPL license.Theoretical Course
The theoretical course is the same as the ATPL course for specific subjects, with a dispensation for some lesson hours. It is advisable, however, for pilots with a PPL license or those who have attended a CPL or APTL course for more than 5 years, to repeat all the ATPL theory lessons in order to be better prepared (at no further cost)....
