    Someone is not being truthful!! Page 42.


    Hiring Process
    CONTROLLER HIRING SOURCES
    The FAA has two primary categories of controller hiring sources.
    • No prior air traffic control specialist (ATCS) experience: These individuals are not required to have prior air
    traffic control experience and may apply for vacancies announced by the FAA.
    • Prior ATCS experience: These individuals have at least 52 weeks of certified air traffic control experience and
    may apply for vacancies announced by the FAA.
    RECRUITMENT
    The agency continues to attract and recruit high-quality applicants into the controller workforce to meet staffing
    requirements.
    In FY 2014, the FAA instituted an interim change to the air traffic control hiring process. The changes allowed the
    FAA to more efficiently compare applicants across previous hiring sources to select those candidates most likely to
    succeed as air traffic control specialists. The new approach included: (1) single vacancy announcement for Collegiate
    Training Initiative (CTI)/veterans and general public applicants; (2) a single set of minimum qualifications/eligibility
    requirements; (3) a multi-hurdle selection process with increased efficiency; and (4) elimination of the Centralized
    Selection Panel process and interview.
    In January 2015, the FAA modified the interim changes by establishing a two-track announcement process for hiring air
    traffic control specialists. The first track targeted candidates without operational air traffic control experience.
    The second track included an announcement targeting applicants who have at least 52 weeks of certified air traffic
    control experience in either civilian or military air traffic control facilities. In December 2015, the FAA launched an ex-
    tended announcement for applicants with previous experience.
    In 2016, Public Law 114-190 established three separate hiring pools.
    FESSA requires that the first pool, which included individuals with previous air traffic control experience, be given
    priority consideration. It also increases the maximum hiring age to 35 for those meeting certain requirements. Over
    1,400 applicants responded to the air traffic control experience vacancy announcement in May 2017. Over 900 were
    referred for employment consideration.
    FESSA establishes a separate track that was then divided into two pools. The first pool includes graduates from CTI
    programs and also military veterans. The second pool is open to the general public. Only the second pool is required
    to pass a biographical assessment screen. FESSA mandates that there be no more than a 10 percent variance between
    those two pools in making final selections. Out of 1,100 applicants referred for employment consideration from the
    CTI/veteran pool, approximately 611 were selected. Out of 1,500 applicants referred for employment consideration
    from the general public pool, approximately 656 were selected.
    Once applicants are notified of selection and have accepted the offer, they will then be required to attain medical and
    security clearances. Upon successful completion of clearances, the applicants will then be scheduled for FAA Air Traffic
    Academy training as agency needs are identified.
    In FY 2018, the FAA will continue to recruit and hire air traffic control specialists to meet staffing requirements through
    the use of the two-track announcement process,

    Oh yeah, I forgot about page 5 too!

    HIRING
    In FY 2016, Public Law 114-190 – FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act (FESSA) of 2016 was enacted. The law
    established three separate hiring pools.
    FESSA requires that the first pool, which included individuals with previous air traffic control experience, be given
    priority consideration. It also increases the maximum hiring age to 35 for those meeting certain requirements. Over
    1,400 applicants responded to the air traffic control experience vacancy announcement in May 2017. Over 900 were
    referred for employment consideration.
    FESSA establishes a separate track that was then divided into two pools. The first pool includes graduates from Colle-
    giate Training Initiative (CTI) programs and also military veterans. The second pool is open to the general public. Only
    the second pool is required to pass a biographical assessment screen. FESSA mandates that there be no more than a
    10 percent variance between those two pools in making final selections. Out of 1,100 applicants referred for employ-
    ment consideration from the CTI/Veteran pool, approximately 611 were selected. Out of 1,500 applicants referred for
    employment consideration from the general public pool, approximately 656 were selected.
    Once applicants are notified of selection and have accepted the offer, they will then be required to attain medical and
    security clearances. Upon successful completion of clearances, the applicants will then be scheduled for FAA Air Traffic
    Academy training as agency needs are identified.
    Over the past five years, the FAA has hired over 6,500 new air traffic controllers. We exceeded our hiring target in
    2017, hiring 1,880 new controllers compared to a plan of 1,781.
    TRAINING
    As the FAA brings these new employees on board, training continues to be closely monitored at all facilities. We must
    carefully manage the process to ensure that our trainees are hired in the places we need them and progress in a timely
    manner to become CPCs. The FAA will also continue to take action at the facility level should adjustments become
    necessary due to changes in traffic volume, retirements or other attrition.
    Ongoing hiring and training initiatives, as well as increased simulator use, are helping the FAA meet its goals. While
    the FAA is managing today’s air traffic, we must also integrate new technologies into air traffic operations. From state-
    of-the-art simulators to satellite technology, air traffic is evolving into a more automated system. The FAA is working
    diligently to ensure well-trained controllers continue to uphold the highest safety standards as we plan for the future.
    The FAA’s goal is to ensure that the agency has the flexibility to match the
    number of controllers at each facility with traffic volume and workload. Staffing
    to traffic is just one of the ways we manage America’s National Airspace System.
