BULATSA Academy announced its autumn recruitment campaign for the position of “Air Traffic Controller”.
As every year, those wishing to be trained for the profession, can submit documents online until 30 October inclusively. Admission is continuous, but those who submit their application after this date will be included in the selection for the spring session in 2024.
The increased traffic in the sky over Bulgaria opens up a chance for everyone who wants to be trained for this profession. The candidates will have to pass through five stages of examination in order to be admitted to the training for the position of Air Traffic Controller.
The application requirements are higher education – with a minimum degree of “Bachelor”, regardless of the specialty. The first stage of the selection is admission of documents, after which the candidates who meet the requirements of the announcement will be invited to the FEAST test (First European Air Traffic Controller Selection Test), which is conducted in two parts. After successful performance at FEAST, they must pass a Class 3 medical fitness test. The final two stages of the selection are practical exercises on a simulator and a conclusion interview.
An English language proficiency certificate is no longer necessary, because the level of language proficiency is assessed through the FEAST test.
Those who pass all the stages of the exams will begin a two-year training at the BULATSA Academy, where they will be trained to become qualified Air Traffic Controllers. During this period they will also receive a monthly scholarship.
In order to present the details of the selection and the activities of the enterprise, BULATSA will conduct “Open Days” on 25 September, 13 and 26 October. Those who are interested to participate in the event must register on the enterprise’s website: “Open Days” of BULATSA in Sofia – BULATSA.
