An Air Traffic Control Specialist may be a dream job, but the FAA should have disclosed more of a complete description of this prospective career.
FAA ATC Recruiting & Testing
FAA selected University of Oklahoma and Embry-Riddle to lead the new Air Transportation Center of Excellence for Technical Training and Human Performance (COE TTHP). This COE will conduct R&D on technical training for air traffic controllers, aviation safety inspectors, engineers, pilots and technicians.
After years of debate, the FAA issued a job vacancy for the position of Air Traffic Control Specialist Trainee that will be available on USAJobs.gov.
The issues in these matters are quite complex and there are valid arguments on both sides. It is hard to determine what side is right and what opinions are biased; so it is useful to hear from an outside expert and the FAA’s primary researcher who documented the validity of the BA instrument.
