Training Outline

The ZJX ARTCC Training Program is a comprehensive program that teaches you the fundaments of virtual Air Traffic Control and how to work out practical problems on your own. During instruction, you, the student, are constantly challenged at each stage, but the training staff is always available to provide guidance and help you towards your goals. It is essential that all controllers read, understand, and abide by the Jacksonville ARTCC Training Policy and Guidelines
