The AMC is an off-line network management centre for the worldwide AFTN/CIDIN/AMHS network. The service is provided by Eurocontrol, without charge, on behalf of ICAO.  

The AMC is composed of AMC systems and AMC operator team, through which the service operation is outsourced to personnel of European ANSPs. The AMC operators are responsible for the day-to-day operations and execution of the centralised part of the management procedures, which are based on the AIRAC cycle.
AMC Operators and all categories of AMC users access the AMC using connections over the Internet which are secured by access control procedures. AMC users are classified into four user categories depending upon their roles and locations.

This AMC video course provides introductory information on following subjects:  

1) AMC Overview
2) AMC Users Types
3) CCC Operators
4) External COM Operators
5) AMF-I Users
6) Read/Only Users

It is suggested that the new comers follow the first two modules, i.e. AMC Overview and AMC Users Types, in order to be familiar with the AMC Concept and eventually to decide the type of user they may become. After that they can follow a specific module corresponding the type of user selected.
