What is the Airfield Marking Symposium?

The Airfield Marking Symposium (AMS) is a training course presented by Sightline.

From design to line, this workshop has something for everyone including Engineers, Maintenance, Operations, Inspectors, etc. Since 2009, the course has evolved, but the content has remained focused on the best practices within the Airfield Marking Handbook, and putting them into practice during live equipment demonstrations on the airfield. The return on investment in this training is quickly realized by your team employing best practices, networking with counterparts in the industry, and understanding how to perform more efficiently.
