BRUSSELS, BE, 05/02/2019 – AVIAtest (BE/LAB-011), a Language Assessment Body active in several European countries is delighted to announce that earlier today it has achieved part-ATCO certification from the Belgian Supervisory Authority for Air Navigation Service Providers for its assessment method for the demonstration of English language proficiency of Air Traffic Controllers.

It complements the portfolio of services deployed by AVIAtest towards the aviation community since 2015.

Jean-François De Coster, Executive Manager of AVIAtest: “Achieving part-ATCO certification certainly is one of the proudest achievements of the whole team at AVIAtest. I am very grateful to be working with such a professional and friendly crew, and I am determined to bring the benefits of a user-friendly language assessment to as many Air Traffic Controllers as we can. I am convinced that our conclusive experience and success with our pilot assessment constitute a solid stepping stone upon which we can build further to provide the ATM community with the same conviviality and efficiency.”
