Federal Aviation Administration anticipates filling up to 1,400 air traffic control jobs

WASHINGTON July 6 The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced today that it will be accepting applications from candidates for entry-level air traffic controller positions starting tomorrow, from July 7-14, 2017.

The job vacancy announcement for the highly competitive position of Air Traffic Control Specialist (Trainee) will be available on the federal government’s official job site, USAJOBS.gov. This announcement is expected to be open for seven days, and the agency is projecting to fill 1,400 positions. If you are interested in applying, log on to USAJOBS and apply prior to the closing date of the vacancy announcement. All applicants must meet minimum qualifications and other eligibility requirements.

Applicants will be separated into two pools of candidates. Pool 1 will include graduates of an institution participating in the Collegiate Training Initiative program who provide an appropriate recommendation, as well as eligible veterans. Individuals who qualify for Pool 1 are not required to take a biographical assessment. Pool 2 includes the general public.

Air Traffic Control Specialists are responsible for the safe, orderly, and expeditious movement of air traffic through the nation's airspace. Trainees spend their first several months of employment in an intensive training program at the FAA Academy located in Oklahoma City, OK, and continue their training once they are placed at a facility.Developmental controllers receive a wide range of training in controlling and separating live air traffic within designated airspace at and around an air traffic control tower or radar approach control facility, or an air route traffic control center.
