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.

Aviation training

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.

For further information on our aviation training or to book a course, please email the aviation training team: [email protected]

Online training courses specifically designed for road maintenance decision makers and gritting operators to introduce weather principles and their impacts on road surfaces, and to learn about our OpenSite™ service to maximise operations and knowledge around site-specific gritting
