Dr. Kurt Barnhart

This certificate program provides students with core foundational knowledge in the field of Air Traffic Control (ATC) in order to help meet a growing demand in the field. The Air Traffic Control Certificate Program allows students to develop an understanding of the operational complexities of the national airspace system and an understanding of the responsibilities of the elements within the system, and understand the constraints of the current ATC system and relate these to the FAA’s future airspace system plan. The certificate builds on a basic knowledge of aviation flight theory and application and helps prepare students for FAA Air Traffic Controller Training.

Students shall demonstrate satisfactory subject matter mastery by maintaining a GPA 3.0 for courses within the certificate program.

Prerequisites for courses in this certificate necessitate basic airman certification and training by the FAA or its International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) member equivalent agency.
