Seven years ago, a major change for aviation meteorology was adopted by WMO Congress and this change started with the implementation of a new concept - Meteorologist competency - which became effective 1-st of December 2013.
In order to ensure not only the competency of Aviation Meteorologists but also the education level for Aviation Forecasters, the Basic Instruction Package for Meteorologists became compulsory. Today, 1-st of December 2016 this requirement has come into force, with all details according to WMO Technical Regulations No. 49 Vol. 1. All information can be found on the ET-ETC website: https://aviationtraining.wmo.int/moodle/course/view.php?id=7
The ET-ETC is and will be continuously available to offer all necessary support to member states and organizations for these topics
