The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) entered into an important strategic training alliance with Entry Point North (EPN), a well-established transnational Air Traffic Management training academy.

As part of this initiative, the IAA has secured a 25% share of the training academy to partner with Scandinavian Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) Avinor (Norway), LFV (Sweden) and Naviair (Denmark).

As of the 1st January 2014, the IAA’s in-house training centre became a 100% EPN owned training subsidiary.

The new entity is staffed by seconded IAA training personnel and delivers all IAA air traffic controller training from its location in Ballycasey, Co. Clare.

EPN was founded in 2005 as a joint partnership between the three ANSPs in Scandinavia. Its aim is to become the market leader in global ATM training and is already one of the largest Independent ATM academies in Europe with multinational staff from fifteen countries. Each year over 500 students and professionals sign up for various ATM related training programmes at its state of the art facilities.
