Hello all.


Wygene Chong, Director of Reykjavik FIR, has until now also taken care of the duties regarding training. Wygene's Vatsim-time will be more limited in the future than it has been so far, so in order to keep focus on the training situation in Reykjavik FIR, we are now calling for applications for the position "Training Assistant Iceland". 

The role of the Training Assistant Iceland includes:

  • Keeping track of the general training situation in Iceland
  • Reviewing incoming training requests in TAS
  • Assigning mentors to students with pending requests
  • Reporting to the Training Director for theory test tokens and rating upgrades
  • Overseeing training and assessment reports and ensuring these meet the standards outlined in the Mentors' SOP
  • Appointing new mentors and examiners as required to meet training demands (in cooperation with TD)
  • Coordinating the development and maintenance of training related material specific to Iceland (Sweatbox scenarios, LOPs, TAS LMS content etc.)

The successful candidate will:

  • Hold a minimum rating of S3
  • Have at least 3-4 hours/week to spend on staff related duties (admin work, answering e-mails etc.)
  • Have ATC mentoring experience in Iceland

Applications or questions about the role should be sent to td@vatsim-scandinavia.org. There is no application deadline, the position will be filled once an appropriate candidate has been found.

Your application should include a brief history of your VATSIM experience, including any previous staff roles as well as a short letter explaining why you are the right person for the job. Please include any ideas and visions you have for training in Iceland and compelling evidence as to how you would contribute in achieving these.

I would like to bump this topic up in case it has been forgotten. This position is still available and as we get more and more people interested in Iceland, it would be wonderful to have someone on ACCSCA25 to help mentor Icelandic students and improve training documents. 

If you would like to make a bigger contribution to the VATSIM Scandinavia community, please send an email to Claus as detailed above :)
