Personnel Licensing

This page provides information about Air Traffic Controller (ATCO) Licensing Requirements arising from the EU ATCO Licensing Directive.

FISO Licensing Requirements arise from the UK Air Navigation Order. For other staff, such as technical staff or Air Traffic Services Electronics Personnel (ATSEPs) there are European Level initiatives aimed at developing Common Core Content Training Requirements and Guidance on Competency checking.

The requirements for CNS/ATM providers are the same as ATC and FIS when such services are bundled together.

For Non-ATS Providers classified as CNS/ATM Providers, only the requirements for technical staff are applicable.

For other staff, such as technical staff or Air Traffic Services Electronics Personnel (ATSEPs) there are European Level initiatives aimed at developing Common Core Content Training Requirements and Guidance on Competency checking. Pending developments in these areas, CAP 670 ATS Safety Requirements, Part B, Section 1, APP 02 Maintenance Arrangements provides details of the current UK Personal Technical Certificates (PTCs) scheme.
