Training organisation for air traffic controllers

In Switzerland, Skyguide is responsible for the training of air traffic controllers. The Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) has certified Skyguide and inspects it on a periodical basis.

As a rule, certificates are issued for a period of three years, during which audits and inspections are carried out in order to verify that the relevant legal provisions are being complied with.

Certified training organisations within Europe are normally recognised by the FOCA.
