The effective performance of the air traffic management (ATM) system depends on competent and qualified ATM professionals. The ATM system is evolving towards a globally integrated and collaborative system. Air traffic safety electronics personnel (ATSEP) involved in the installation, operation and maintenance of the communication, navigation, surveillance/air traffic management (CNS/ATM) system must have a shared understanding of what is expected of them in terms of performance wherever they may work in order to support a globally interoperable system and to achieve optimum capacity within acceptable safety limits. This shared understanding becomes critical when considering the increasing traffic and the growing complexity and interconnectedness of the systems involved. As controller-pilot and system-to-system interfaces evolve, the ATSEP installing, operating and managing the CNS/ATM system need common competencies and practices to ensure seamless operations.

This manual provides guidance to air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and training organizations on the development of air traffic safety electronics personnel (ATSEP) competency-based training and assessment programmes.
