ATCM 2300 Introduction to Terminal Radar Operations

This course covers the basic air traffic control (ATC) procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) in terminal ATC facilities in the National Airspace System (NAS). Knowledge and skill requirements for air traffic control specialists (ATC) in the current ATC system are studied in the classroom and practiced in a realistic, performance-based laboratory environment. Duties and responsibilities of the TRACON air traffic controller are integrated into an understanding of how the total ATC system works. Classroom delivery is augmented by practical laboratory problems using an air traffic control simulation of terminal radar operations
