VATM ab-initio students are self funded fee-paying students, selected jointly by VATM (for cultural fit) and Airways (for cognitive ability) using our SureSelect ATC selection tools. Following successful selection the students are streamed and enrolled by Airways to either the Aerodrome and Approach Procedural training or Area Control Surveillance and Procedural training.
The enrolment is a contractual relationship between the student and Airways, inclusive of course fees. Airways delivers the training using its comprehensive competency training and assessment system approved by the Civil Aviation Authority Vietnam (CAAV).
Throughout the training Airways keeps VATM up-to-date with timely progress reports as well as the pastoral care status of each student. All students who successfully complete the training are eligible for a CAAV ATC student licence and are guaranteed on-job training with VATM. The shared training model provides VATM with on-the-job qualified, proven, safe and reliable trainees to enhance its safety culture for little financial cost.
