Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate 18*
*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 19 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:
apply FAA and NTSB regulations and other aeronautical and security guidelines appropriately in various aviation and safety settings;
perform basic air traffic controller duties in low-density traffic scenarios; and
speak and communicate clearly and decisively using standard industry pilot-controller phraseology.
The Air Traffic Control Certificate is designed to provide a strong foundation and understanding of Air Traffic Control operations. This does not qualify as a substitute for the FAA Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI) degree program. A certificate in Air Traffic Control will be awarded to students completing the above pattern with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
