Posted 16 November 2015 · Add Comment

Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) and SOC Limited Aviation Training Academy (ATA) recently held an international aviation graduation ceremony in Johannesburg.


One hundred and four students from South Africa, Zambia, Swaziland and Namibia were conferred with various aviation qualifications.  

Focusing on important issues such as safety management; aviation security; Air Navigation Services management; civil aviation, project and air traffic services management, these qualifications are meant to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills to assume leadership roles in today’s complex civil aviation environment. 

ATNS commercial services executive Thabani Myeza said that he saw great leadership in the current generation of higher education learners: “With particular reference to you and those before you – who graduated through this programme, and to other graduates in various institutions of higher learning across the continent, I see the rise of a generation of African intelligentsia who are redefining the continent as a center of opportunity, drive, and innovation.”  

Guest speaker and South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) executive human resources, Paul Moraka said every successful candidate should thank their immediate family and friends. “It is those close to you who suffered the most. They had to deal with your absence; tight schedules and deadlines among others, just to support you”.
