Aug. 25, 2017 // NATCA Professional Standards Program: New Resource Now Available to Members
NATCA is launching a new resource for the Professional Standards program. It’s a special section on the members side of the natca.org website devoted to providing a full range of information about Professional Standards.
“We have had the test site up for some time making sure we captured everything we needed. Now it is a one-stop destination for anyone seeking information regarding the program,” said Garth Koleszar, one of NATCA’s leads on the Professional Standards program.
The new web section has everything you need to understand Professional Standards. It has special tabs for NATCA’s Facility Representatives and Professional Standards Committee (PSC) members, and information for NATCA members.
“I’m excited for us to have a place where our present and future committee members can go to help them learn or refresh on the processes and get updated information regarding their roles,” Professional Standards co-lead Joshua Cooper added. “It provides documents, frequently asked questions sheets, and other tools including great stuff about our Code of a Professional Air Traffic Controller.”
FacReps can find criteria on selecting new committee members, how the Professional Standards program can help them in their roles, and training tools and professionalism videos for their members.
NATCA members can also find a list of their local facility PSC members, as well as committee members outside their facility that they can contact. There are several easy-to-navigate links that connect directly to the national Professional Standards team for help, information, and advice.
The Professional Standards Program has been in place for many years. It has processed over 2,500 cases — 2,250 of them were successfully resolved!
Andy Marosvari, the third member of the NATCA National Professional Standards team said, “This website gives us an opportunity to continue our outreach and refresh everyone not just on what it means to be a professional, but also how the Professional Standards Program works and can help us as an organization.”
