We are contracted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the UK Meteorology Authority, to train all airfield observers and deliver comprehensive aviation meteorological training.
Our training is focused and intense, so staff are not removed from their operational duties for longer than necessary.
It is up to date and relevant and trains observers to meet International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements.
Our training includes:
Air Traffic Services
The air traffic services course provides you with the skills and knowledge required to make fully compliant and accurate aviation weather reports.
Air Traffic Services Refresher
The air traffic services refresher is designed for qualified ATS and aeronautical observers who need to update or refresh their practical observing and coding skills.
Air Traffic Focal Point
The Air Traffic Focal Point training provides advice and guidance on airport meteorology competency checks, particularly understanding the different ways and methods of complying with regulations.
The Restricted Observing course has been designed for staff of ATS units using a fully integrated semi-automatic observing system.
The Met Office College provides a wide range of courses. To receive more information about training please register your details.
