Program opportunities

ADB SAFEGATE is pleased to offer a 4-day seminar for the maintenance of visual aids of aerodromes. The afternoon of the fourth day includes a written certification test. The advance registration fee for the 4-day seminar is USD $ 1,200.00.

Program Learning Objectives

  • Identify airfield lighting product specifications used by various organizations (FAA/Military/ICAO).
  • Recognize the key performance parameters required of a FAA Constant Current Regulator (CCR) or a SwitchGear Regulator System (SGRS).
  • Comprehend the operational theory of airfield series circuits.
  • Given the load for various series circuit components, accurately calculate the actual CCR load using a calculator.
  • Evaluate the operational and maintenance differences between airfield incandescent and LED lighting.
  • Identify the operational characteristics of various airfield lighting products including isolation transformers, circuit selectors, REILs, PAPIs, Radio Controls, guidance signs, in-pavement lights, elevated lights, stop bars and runway guard lights.
  • Identify the calibration methods, preventive maintenance, corrective maintenance and troubleshooting procedures for various airfield lighting products. 


The only prerequisite is a basic understanding of electrical theory. This includes a basic understanding of electrical concepts such as resistance, capacitance and inductance, series and parallel circuits, Ohm's law, DC circuits, AC circuits and Power Factor. Familiarity with how to use a meter to measure current and voltage would also be beneficial. This program is designed for anyone involved in airfield lighting maintenance.
