Land Based Technicians Accreditation Scheme (LTA)
Download Growing The LTA Brand brochure here
With the backing of the major manufacturers of agricultural, horticultural, forestry and ground care equipment, the Landbased Technician Accreditation scheme (LTA) has been developed by AEA, in conjunction with IAgrE, with the support of BAGMA, on behalf of the land based engineering sector.
The objective of the scheme is to provide a nationwide means of benchmarking, monitoring and assessing the competence of technicians employed within the sector. The LTA scheme will also provide encouragement and recognition for both employers and technicians who voluntarily commit to continual professional development in pursuit of technical support excellence.
There are four categories or tiers with all tiers being registered on a central database held by IAgrE who administer the scheme.
• LTA 1 – Self registration on-line. Entries on this register would be categorised as Students on a recognised landbased engineering course at a recognised Landbased engineering college, OR Apprentices (on recognised programmes) OR more skilled/mature entrants not yet otherwise assessed and categorised. There is currently no charge to register.
• LTA 2 - Newly qualified apprentices or assessed skilled technician meeting the required criteria.
• LTA 3 - A skilled & experienced technician who has successfully attended a series of assessed course programmes - may be a product specialist.
• LTA 4 - A professional technician having a proven and assessed track record. Additional assessment criteria are included to demonstrate exceptional diagnostic and technical ability together with customer and technical mentoring skills.
In addition to accrediting technicians, the scheme also recognises and accredits those working in dealerships who have attained recognised supervisory positions within their relevant service, parts and after-market departments. Currently, the positions recognised are, Service Manager. Parts Manager. After-Market Manager.
