College to Host Info Session July 13 on Air Traffic Control and Aviation Programs

June 23, 2011

Atlantic Cape Community College will host an information session about its Air Traffic Control and Aviation programs at 6 p.m., Wednesday, July 13, in the Walter Edge Theater at the Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.

Anyone interested in learning more about exciting careers in aviation and air traffic control should attend the session, which will give an overview on admittance to Atlantic Cape’s programs and what the programs cover.

Atlantic Cape Community College began offering the Air Traffic Control program in January for students who have their sights set on a fast-paced, exciting career. The program prepares students for entry-level jobs as air traffic controllers and employment with federal, private and military services, where trained professionals are in great demand.

The FAA intends to hire and train 15,000 new air traffic controllers over the next decade. The median annual wage for air traffic controllers in 2009 was $109,850, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Atlantic Cape is the only college in New Jersey and the Philadelphia region offering the training.
