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.

During 2022 TMS Training Solutions Limited will continue to offer interactive on-line Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) training available within a “virtual classroom” scenario and provided via on-line training modules with an optional exam for qualification and recognition purposes in the following format:

  • Live introduction across 4 major time zones to cover SE Asia, Middle East, Europe, Americas (Eastern)
  • On-line training modules released weekly
  • Weekly live tutorial for each major time zone
  • Optional exam for qualification and recognition purposes

This will enable students to arrange & attend with minimal impact on their day to day functions. The 12 sessions/module virtual on-line training is part of our wider CBTA training structure and given within the CBTA “Continuation” training phase BUT will also qualify for new-entry AGL electrical personnel/practitioner training (Basic Training) who are just embarking on their AGL careers.

It is with regret that due to the effects of COVID 19 and travel restrictions, our AGL/GTM Seminar series for 2020 are currently suspended until further notice. For details on other courses, please contact us on:

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 skill and knowledge gaps and training needs to ensure your staff meet regulatory targets and achieve the competency levels ICAO say are needed to support the ICAO NGAP incentives. This includes the maintenance of existing technologies and the migration towards future AGL / GTM systems and technologies.
