Air Traffic Management education focuses on imparting students the knowledge and skills necessary to Air Traffic Services and undergo On-the-Job-Training under the supervision of a licensed ATCO for the issue of an aerodrome ATC license in Aerodrome Control, Approach Control and Area Control units to qualify as an Air Traffic Management Officer.

The programme is highly intense as a bulk of theoretical knowledge compacted within a relatively short duration and exaggerated practical simulations are beyond the normal controlling scenarios, for the purpose of producing cream of personnel who will be orderly and expeditious in the discharging of Air Traffic Management Services. Hence the programme is segmented into different levels of learning order to achieve the best results achieve. Air Traffic Management also produces working personal is other filed such as Aeronautical Information Officers, Rescue and Search Officers, Aircraft Accident Investigators, Flight Marshallers and Flight Dispatchers.

This programme will strive to develop in the professional a capability for innovation and a passion for continuous training. The curriculum thus developed will reflect the spirit as contained in the rationale statement and when implemented will satisfy the professional demands of the industry and academies. The graduates will be adequately equipped to exploit the opportunities and face the challenges offered by the dynamic and fast-growing industry.
