The field training administered to air traffic controllers is provided by instructors who are also controllers but have undergone training to become on-the-job training instructors (OJTIs). The training of these field OJTIs is under revision based on a training needs assessment conducted in 2011. Controllers who were not successful in training at their first facility can be reassigned to another facility, where they receive field training specific to that facility. The controllers who did not succeed in training initially and requested reassignment may have a useful perspective on the training they received. This perspective may aid in revising the training provided to OJTIs, in addition to and in conjunction with the earlier training needs assessment.
