Entry level ATC Training course in the VATPAC Division.  Covers VATSIM ATC competencies for Delivery, Ground and Tower positions.

At the completion of this course, the candidate will be prepared for practical assessment to gain the rating of Tower Controller.

This optional module is a requirement for those who hold a Tower Rating to log on to and provide procedural approach control services at regional procedural towers.

Controllers holding a TMA Rating or higher are not required to complete this course however  are encouraged to study this course prior to providing procedural approach control.

This module guides candidates through the knowledge and skills required to obtain the VATPAC TMA Rrating. After passing a written multiple choice exam, candidates will undertake a short practical assessment, during which they will act as Approach in a simulated environment.

This module guides candidates through the knowledge and skills required to obtain the VATPAC Enroute (Centre) rating. After passing a written multiple choice exam, candidates will undertake a short practical assessment, during which they will act as Centre in a simulated environment.

A course in providing ATC in the Oceanic Control Area (OCA). Upon successful completion, a student will be awarded with an Oceanic Endorsement (/O).

This is the highest achievable controller rating in VATSIM. The rating does not unlock any additional airspace but represents controllers with an acquired skill, and an advanced ATC knowledge above and beyond that of an en route centre controller.

This course provides an introduction to the EuroScope ATC Client and detailed information both on installation and operation of the TAAATSMod plugin. A must read for those interested in closely simulating the real life air traffic system used within Australia.
