Hi all
Over the last few years, myself and collegues have visited a training facility here in the UK to gain AGL qualifications. We have taken a few of the B-tech modules each and passed exams, never to receive certification.
Has anybody else experianced this and what can we do about it? As when I have asked questions I get very little response, get told that the courses are being changed to a City & Guilds qualification that we would need to resit.
I am just interested to see if anybody else has experianced this and have you had a suitable outcome....

Thanks

Steve

Woodsy,

My company uses ATG Airports for AGL & MCS training.

They provide certification in the form of their certificates, not sure if this is what you're after, but it's a start.

I went through ATG with a defence contrator, a very good training facility.

Hi, it looks like a very quiet topic here, but I would like to know a bit more about ATG training with private contractors and what the caper is with airport management

The topic of training for AGL is discussed regularly in the IET AGL Safety and Competency Working Group. Unfortunately there are no nationally/professionally recognised training courses available. Various commercial companies offer good quality training courses but there is no AGL certification that has official accreditation. ICAO lists "Approved AGL training providers" on their website.
The working group is trying to establish a route to AGL official accreditation.
