Training Documentation - Finland
The Finnish training program
Finland offers four types of training:
Refresh: Refreshing training for inactive controllers to their respective rating.
Familiarization: Primarily intended for VatSca members who have received their rating from another VatSca country. Secondarily for C1+ rated controllers who have received their training elsewhere. The latter is available only with a special permission from the VatSca Director.
Fast track: Intended for controllers from real life or other networks to the available level as per the VATEUD Fast Track -program.
Our mentors are a growing team of experienced Vatsim members who are there to teach new virtual air traffic controllers and guide with other problems. Our team:
