A short history on the development of the ATSEP Training Manual

Until today ATSEP Training is being done at national ANSP level. However the need for harmonization of ATSEP training was recognized early 2000.

In 2002 Eurocontrol released their ESARR 5 document, acknowledging that ATSEP need to have a proven competence.

During the period of 2001 to 2004, IFATSEA with support of Eurocontrol, created the first basic training guidelines for a Common Basic Level of Technical Training for Air Traffic Safety Electronics and qualification training guidelines for a Common Qualification Level of Technical Training for Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel.

These European ATSEP training manuals were used as basis for developing a global ATSEP training manual under ICAO. In 2004, ICAO released the first version of the ATSEP Training manual Doc 7912.

In 2006, the common system training guidelines for a Common System/Equipment Rating Training for Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel, as well theĀ  Guidelines for the Competence Assessment of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel were published.

In 2009 the basic and qualification guidelines became Eurocontrol specifications for ATSEP Common Core Content Initial Training.

Today ATSEP Training and competence is now in progress to become EU law through EASA NPA2013-08 (EASA NPA2013-08).

On the 58th Single Sky Committee meeting held on 21/22 of October 2015, they will vote for the whole regulation.
