Introductory ICAO Aviation English course for Student ATCOs

- Listening comprehension of pilot/controller transmissions
- Roleplay activities
The course also provides information regarding the ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements, rating scale, AEROSTAF ATCO Language Proficiency Test and expert guidance on current level and how to improve. It also gives applicants a thorough understanding of the preparation needed for a career in Air Traffic Control.
The course is developed/conducted by both a senior Air Traffic Control Officer (Subject Matter Expert) and a highly experienced Aviation English Teacher / Test Developer / Author.
