Attracting and selecting the right people, then providing them with the best possible training, is the most effective way to ensure the success of your air traffic controller candidates.
With SureSelect, you can spend your time with the recruits who are most likely to achieve. SureSelect helps ANSPs through the complex process of attracting and sorting large volumes of candidates. Research suggests less than 3% of people have what it takes to be an air traffic controller, so it's essential you have a robust recruitment and assessment package that can quickly filter out those with the skills to succeed. With consistently high success rates, SureSelect reduces your training costs by allowing you to focus on the right people, with the right fit for your organisation.

Our Approach to ATC Selection
1. Online application process
SureSelect uses a web-based automated application system designed to screen out as many unsuitable candidates as possible during the initial phase of the recruitment process.
Because there are more applicants available at this phase of the process, SureSelect has a better probability of identifying those worth investing in at the next two phases, and who have the best chance of succeeding through training.
A robust and comprehensive advertising strategy and management system is therefore critical to this phase.
2. Pre-screening phase
Pre-screening with the SureSelect system involves industry-standard aptitude (psychometric) testing, and a pre-designed short interview process.
This phase screens applicants on key skill areas, minimising the number of applicants selected for the Assessment Centre. This reduces your organisation’s investment in systems and staffing and ensures only the best candidates proceed to the next round.
3. Assessment Centre
The SureSelect Assessment Centre is comprised of software-based tests related to the human factors of air traffic control. This phase provides the final analysis to determine how likely a candidate is to succeed as an air traffic controller in your organisation.
The Assessment Centre is designed to validate a candidate’s competency against established criteria in a variety of individual and group exercises, as well as during focused interviews and software-based testing.
4. Reference checking
The final phase of the SureSelect process involves reference checking. This includes checking applicants against medicals, security requirements, and verifying key data provided. Information provided in the interview is also checked against references.
