The Met Office provides a range of weather and climate related training which aims to help those impacted by the weather to carry out their roles safely and effectively.
We provide a variety of training from courses for those involved in the aviation industry to bitesize basic meteorology learning videos available for all to access via our YouTube channel.
We are authorised by the Civil Aviation Authority to train all airfield observers.
Met Office aviation training meets International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements. Courses are focused and intense, so staff are not removed from their operational duties for longer than necessary.
Please see the calendar of scheduled courses for details on courses that are currently open for booking.
