With the backing of the major manufacturers of agricultural (including milking equipment), horticultural, forestry and ground care equipment, the Landbased Technician Accreditation schemes (LTA) have been developed by AEA and MEA, in conjunction with IAgrE, with the support of BAGMA, on behalf of the land based engineering sector.
The objectives of the schemes are to provide a nationwide means of benchmarking, monitoring and assessing the competence of technicians employed within the sector. The schemes will also provide encouragement and recognition for both employers and technicians who voluntarily commit to continual professional development in pursuit of technical support excellence. All schemes ensure parity of esteem and have, as a component part, registration as an Engineering Technician with the Engineering Council through the industry’s professional body, IAgrE.
