Tunisian Association hosts Think Safety Workshop

The Tunisian Air Traffic Controllers’ Association is hosting the IFATCA Think Safety workshop. This hugely sought-after event is our Federation’s most effective tool for expanding awareness of just culture and a core understanding of systemic safety concepts.

Think Safety Workshop in Madrid

In partnership with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), IFATCA is hosting another ‘Think Safety’ workshop. With the support of our Spanish Member Association USCA, the venue for this edition is Madrid, Spain. This aviation safety workshop is aimed at aviation professionals who wish to improve their understanding of safety processes, safety culture, and just culture.

Some of the most respected experts in their field participate as presenters and moderators. They have experience in Safety Management and training, and are an integral part of the international ATC community through IFATCA. They have also spent time in the various IFATCA regions and understand the regional/cultural challenges that a healthy and open safety culture can present.

Aviation English Instructor course, Algiers

Over the past week and with the support of local association SNPCA, IFATCA hosted an Aviation English Development course in Algiers, Algeria. Some 28 participants from Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Niger and Nigeria attended. Presented by Silvia Caragui (from our Romanian Member Association RATCA), it culminated in a small ceremony this morning, during which the certificates were handed out to the attendees. The course is a so-called train-the-trainers course, where the idea is that the participants take the experience back to their local units/countries to help their colleagues improve their aviation english skills.

Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) Workshop – Buenos Aires, Argentina

The first IFATCA Competency-Based Training and Assessment Workshop was held at the ATEPSA Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 10-11 September 2018.

IFATCA would like to sincerely thank ATEPSA, and in particular Eva Rios, for the extraordinary organization of this event; her incredible dedication ensured the success of the workshop. ATEPSA graciously provided well equipped facilities, refreshments and meals for all participants and instructors.

Aviation English Proficiency Course, Santa Cruz, Bolivia

Controllers from Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Ecuador recently completed an IFATCA sponsored five-day Aviation English Proficiency Course in Santa Cruz, Bolivia November 13-17. MAs and controllers from the entire region were invited to participate and the class filled up with over 25 participants, including a pilot.

The course was taught by Ronald Vega, MA from 2019 Conference host Costa Rica.  Ron actually assisted the FAA in the United States with the creation of some of the material used in the course.  Each student was given an E-textbook and accompanying CD so they could share their knowledge with ATCOs in their home facilities.

The Americas Region looks forward to hosting the next "Think Safety" seminar planned for February 6-8, 2018 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
