The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities, World Wide Academy, is hosting a Master of AtoN Management course from 3 to 7 December 2018 at IALA Headquarters, St Germain-en-Laye, France.
IALA Standard 1050 on training and certification recommends that national Competent Authorities and the accredited training organisations (ATOs) in their country utilise model courses concerned with the provision of Aids to Navigation services, in accordance with IALA Recommendations O-149 and R0141.
To assist Member States to conform to its standard provisions and to claim compliance to that standard, the IALA World-Wide Academy has drafted a new model course L1.2 entitled Master of Aids to Navigation Managementwhich is an extension of the existing IALA Level 1 AtoN Manager course.
