To add to CandianNorth's question I was wondering what kind of education need to become one and what kind of marks in high school?

Down here in the states there are basically four different kinds of controllers. Center (enroute), tower, TRACON and flight service. The norm nowadays is at least a two-year college degree or military training in ATC. If you are picked up by the FAA plan on spending 2-3 years training at a center or a year at the TRACON or FSS and about 6 months to a year if picked up at a tower facility.

Swedish ATC education is all paid for by the government and there is no requirements on a college degree and takes 2-3 years to complete if i'm not mistaken. And you are garantueed a job when you'r fininshed. Pretty neat i'd say.

I went throu Nav Canada's website at they said that Nav Canada requirments are completion of high school with an avg. of over 70% followed by a 6 month training coarse in Cornwall Ontarion, and up to 1 year of hands on training in a small base.
