Training Opportunities

Meteorology and Aviation Programs

Surface Weather Observer Training Program
ATS delivers eight 6-week ab-initio training programs per year designed to prepare candidates for employment as Surface Weather Observers. Equipped with meteorological instruments for monitoring, recording and transmitting aviation surface weather, these observers provide the bulk of weather information for distribution across the country.
Observer Communicator Training Program
The Observer Communicator training program is a 9 to 12 week program that combines surface weather observing with aviation communications. The formal program is followed by intensive on-job-training and certification which qualifies the graduate to work at any Community Aerodrome Radio Stations or Approach Unicom across Canada.
Aerological Observer Training Program
Aerological Observer Training is a 2 to 3 week training program conducted by the Meteorological Service of Canada followed by an on-the-job certification at the site where the Observer will be employed. The course is designed to prepare candidates for employment to carry out aerological observations of the upper atmosphere. Contact ATS Services for employment opportunities within the Aerological Observing sites that we operate.
