One of the core objectives of the Federation is "To promote and uphold a high standard of knowledge and professional efficiency among Air Traffic Controllers". To achieve this, the Federation conducts several educational initiatives, one of which is training workshops on various topics of importance. The Federation also produces some guidance material which can be found in the Guidance Material section.

Workshops currently available or under planning for the near future are:
