After going through air traffic control training, will I have to memorize coordinates or things of that nature when working with certain tools or will there be an option for me to look things up if I get stuck or forget something??

From the small video over view that I watched on this occupation, I noticed various advanced technology being used and I want to know if it will be difficult for me to get the hang of it or if there is a safety net to ensure that I don't forget how to do certain things while I am working.
