What is the Airfield Marking Professional (AMP) Symposium?

The Airfield Marking Professional (AMP) Symposium is a training course presented by Sightline. This certificate program was designed to meet and exceed the guidance within FAA Advisory Circular 150/5340-1M, Standards for Airfield Markings: Paragraph 1.3.8. "Personnel involved in the application of airfield surface markings should complete training which includes surface preparation, removal and application of surface markings, and maintenance standards."

From design to line, the symposium delivers certificate training on airfield marking standards and best practices. The AMP curriculum features industry standards from the latest FAA Advisory Circulars and the Airfield Marking Handbook. The symposium also features state-of-the-art equipment demonstrating the best practices on the airfield including marking cleaning and removal, airless paint equipment, paint/glass bead application and calibration, stencils, preformed thermoplastic installation, and retro-reflectivity testing.

Attendees will earn their AMP Certificate upon successfully passing a final assessment at the end of the course.

This course offers 12.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs).
