    In aviation, Air-Traffic Control professionals must be able to adaptto continuing changes in technologies. Professionals in such anenvironment must learn how to act upon the changes and theymust learn how to maintain expertise to meet the skills required inthe changed situation. As a consequence they should be able toindentify and study learning materials that fit their learning needsand meet their set learning goals. Learners are called self-directedlearners when they can formulate own learning needs, set ownlearning goals, and can identify human and material resources foran optimal learning process. These skills can be defined as selfdirectedlearning (SDL) skills and training of these skills is desired.We focus on SDL skills learners need to develop and we plead fora shared controlled adaptive training system which can supportthe development of these skills.
