Midwest ATC has extensive experience in providing air traffic control technical training as well as other relevant aviation training. Utilizing classroom and on-the-job training, Midwest ATC regularly provides basic, refresher, remedial and other required training to seasoned controllers as well as students. In 2005 we established the first en-route air traffic control center contracted to an entity outside the US government when we opened the Kabul Area Control Center (ACC). Midwest ATC created a non-radar training academy to provide initial training to incoming Kabul Area Control Center (KACC) personnel.  Controllers who attended this training academy were certified as much as 60% faster than those that deployed before creation of the academy, thereby reducing on-the-job training times.

Midwest ATC is also responsible for training Afghan nationals in a variety of aviation disciplines, beginning with tower air traffic control. Previously we have worked under two separate agreements, one through the DoD and one through the International Office of the FAA, to provide training to Afghan nationals so that Afghan airspace can eventually transition to sovereign control.
