Aeronautical Meteorological Personnel (AMP) Competency Standards

We provide training for forecasters and observing staff from meteorological services all over the world

The Met Office College provides UK Civil Aviation Authority audited aeronautical meteorology training that conforms with the new World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) Competency Standards for AMP.

Alongside aeronautical meteorology training the Met Office College can also provide a range of consultancy services to help aeronautical meteorological service providers enhance flight safety through compliance with these regulations. These services include:

  • providing guidance to regulatory authorities on how best to assess aeronautical meteorological service providers against the AMP Competency Standards, including documentation as part of a Quality Management System (QMS);
  • assessment of aeronautical meteorological service provider's forecasters and observers against the AMP Competency Standards including recommendations to address any gaps identified.
