Training Calendar 2023 / 2024

To address the upcoming shortage of skilled aviation professionals the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has launched the Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) initiative to ensure that enough qualified and competent aviation professionals are available to operate, manage and maintain the future international air transport system.

Training by TMS Training Solutions Limited for airport operators, airside maintenance, service personnel and civil aviation regulatory inspectors has been developed to support NGAP’s in meeting these mandatory competency requirements as defined in Air Navigation Orders (ANOs) to ensure that airport’s operational performance is compliant with standards and practices as directed by the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO), Regional and National Authorities.


Our Airfield Ground Lighting (AGL) training courses and seminars brings your airport a range of structured packages aligned to the ICAO competency achievement needs for specialist, continuation and development training phases. Our courses are based upon ICAO, EASA, FAA & Military Standards with the key objective of achieving the highest levels of competency and proficiency training to deliver results for engineering individuals, airport authorities, consultants and aviation authority inspectorates.

We work with you to identify the knowledge and skill gaps, plus the training needs, to ensure your AGL engineering staff meet regulatory targets and achieve the competency levels which ICAO define are needed to support the ICAO’s Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) incentives and legal requirements. This includes the design, installation, maintenance and operation of existing AGL systems and the migration towards future AGL/GTM systems and associated technologies.
