The Czech Air Navigation Institute (CANI), an integral part of Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic (ANS CR), specializes in the provision of ATC training and also provides consultancy services in ATM.
ATC training courses
With over 25 years of experience in ATC training, CANI offers a full spectrum of ATC training courses including Ab Initio theory and rating training, tailor-made courses for ATC professionals and specialized English language courses. All courses offered meet international standards.
3D ATC tower simulator and ATC training
CANI operates a state-of-the-art 3D tower simulator (360° rear-projection tower system composed of six working positions; the simulator can also run as two 180° towers). It also provides TWR, APP and ACC simulators, a self-access center (CBT), a language laboratory, a library and a conference room.
ATC personnel training
Standard courses for the training of ATC personnel have been designed in order to offer:
- A standardized and systematic institutional training program
- A harmonized training program, which is in conformity with the EUROCONTROL guidelines for ATCO common core content and training objectives and with the ICAO course outlines
- A harmonized but also flexible training program for customers’ specific needs and requirements by combination of training modules: each module has a specific objective to be fulfilled in order to meet the requirements set in ICAO Annex I
ATC theory training and rating training
General ATC courses consist of basic training (theory) and rating training. Basic training is a necessary prerequisite for rating training. Both parts can be combined to form a complete training course for Ab Initio students to any institutional training course required prior to on-the-job training and issuance of an air traffic controller license.
Practical training can be conducted either in the ROSE or LATCI artificial airspace created by CANI or in the individual national airspace. Course content can be expanded to include additional topics based on customer request.
Specialized ATC courses for active controllers
Specialized ATC courses are intended primarily for active controllers seeking to expand or sharpen their skills and qualification in a particular area.
Specialized ATC language programs
CANI has a long tradition in offering specialized ATC language programs. English courses can be either offered separately or as a fully integrated part of any long-term ATC course. Language programs are highly customizable to fit the needs of the client.
