NAMA improves manpower with 40 controllers ratings
THE Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, (NAMA) has improved its capacity with the rating of 40 Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, (NCAA).
The Air Traffic Controllers who cut across different cadres got their ratings after successfully passing the oral, practical and written examinations conducted in Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Port Harcourt and Benin airports and supervised by the regulatory authority.
According to NAMA, a total of 43 Air Traffic Controllers took part in the rigorous rating examinations held between November and December 2014 on Aerodrome, Approach, Approach Radar, Area/Airways and Area Control Surveillance. Out of this number, forty were successful while three were not.
However, the Managing Director NAMA, Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam has commended the controllers for justifying the huge resources invested in the exercise by coming out with an impressive result.
In a statement signed by the Acting General Manager, Public Affairs, Olajumoke Adetona, Abdulsalam stated that: ‘’as part of management’s strategy to build a robust safety infrastructure across the Nigerian airspace, training and re-training of critical manpower has remained the focal point of his administration.’’
While congratulating the controllers on their brilliant performance, Abdulsalam expressed confidence that this latest ratings would further boost the critical manpower need of NAMA especially in Area Radar Control service.
