Upon the successful completion of the initial course at ATNS ATA, ATNS may offer the bursar a six-month fixed-term contract to fulfill essential on-the-job training in either flight planning or aeronautical communications.

Bursary recipients are expected to successfully complete all modules, courses, and examinations to maintain their bursary. If a bursar does not pass an examination or assessment on the first attempt but achieves a score of more than 50%, they may have the opportunity to rewrite the exam or be reassessed. If they still do not pass, the bursary will be terminated.
If a bursar chooses not to fulfill the fixed-term contract, ATNS may seek reimbursement for the company's invested funds up to that point. During the fixed-term contract, the bursar is required to complete all necessary validations required to perform solo duties as an AIM Officer. The bursar's performance is continually monitored during this period, with ongoing feedback provided.
Within one month of the fixed-term contract's conclusion, the line manager will decide whether to offer the learner permanent employment as an AIM Officer with ATNS.
