The Training Staff are here to provide you any assistance you need as you progress through the ranks. Training staff are broken into two categories. Instructors are able to provide training or monitoring on any position and any rating at The Atlanta Center. They are responsible for issuing promotions, and overseeing their assigned areas of the training curriculum. Mentors are those who are not yet eligible to become full instructors, or do not wish to become full instructors but who wish to provide assistance to the training department and The Atlanta Center controllers. Mentors are capable of being certified to monitor and train on any position but they must be certified prior to providing training in each area. All Atlanta Center Instructors are required to progress through the ranks of the mentorship program prior to becoming an instructor.
