Air Traffic Controllers Job and training opportunities

Air Traffic Controllers Job and training opportunities The Federal Aeronautics Agency (FAA) as you may recall is the Agency tasked with maintaining and controlling our nation's air traffic. Under the umbrella of the FAA, is the Air Traffic Controllers. These dedicated men and women sit in the control towers and radar communication centers directing the air traffic both in the air and on the ground (at airports).This is a very difficult job and requires some of the best and brightest minds to manage the some 50,000 flights a day in the USA, not to mention making sure Santa's sleigh arrives in country with great haste.

American Legion DC HOT ISSUES Jan 8th 2014

The American Legion Washington DC Office HOT ISSUES Wednesday, January 8 2014 ACTIONS – Staff met with the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), to discuss the IUVA proposal to the National Science Foundation for an advanced technical education program to train veterans, community college students, and water utility technicians in emerging ultraviolet technologies that disinfect drinking water and wastewater.  Nearly a third of water utility workers are eligible to retire by 2015; increasing demand for trained, licensed technicians.  To meet program goals that will recruit, train and employ veterans, IUVA must closely examine state licensing and certification policy, per state for water utility and ultraviolet technicians.  In fact, the project has prompted discussion about state versus national certifications that can benefit technicians, and standardize industry practices.
