New York ARTCC is pleased to offer it's second annual National Traffic Management Training Course (NTMTC). Back my popular demand, this challenging 8 week seminar-style course involves lectures and open  discussions of current traffic management procedures and philosophy, as  well as an exploration of the roles and relationships of the various  stakeholders influencing the daily operation of the National Airspace  System.

Participants will receive weekly informative briefings on a variety of  subject matters, review operational scenarios, and discuss best  operating practices. The instructional method is a carefully balanced  combination of lecture, PowerPoint, and multimedia presentations along  with open discussion.

This program serves to provide training for controllers selected for Traffic Management Coordinator  positions as well as Events Coordinators and other personnel required to perform traffic management duties. This training program includes classroom  instruction, local facility orientation, and site specific training  designed to prepare Traffic Management Specialists-in-Training (TMSIT)  for the operational environment.
Controllers who currently hold a Controller (C1)  rating as well as other  management personnel who need to have a general knowledge of the traffic management system are eligible for course enrollment.

Personnel who wish to complete this course must submit a written  request and letter of approval from their facility Air Traffic Manager to the ZNY Traffic Management Coordinator.

 The class will begin October 8, 2011.

For more information and class registration, please contact tmc[at]

Out of curiousity, why is a "letter of approval from their facility ATM" necessary to attend this course?

It strikes me that this would be "excluding" people from attending a course being offered that they would otherwise be able to attend.  Would you exclude someone who could not get said letter from attending the course?
