Professional Development Program Coursework Updated By NBAA

Three New Courses Also Approved As Association Seeks New Providers To Develop Additional Material

Three new courses developed to prepare business aviation professionals for management roles within business aviation flight departments were unveiled Monday by the NBAA. The association also released updated Professional Development Program (PDP) objectives for its existing curricula.

The program encourages participation in coursework, recognizes outstanding participants and rewards those seeking careers in business aviation. Courses are offered in the following five specialized areas, known as PDP objectives: business management, leadership, operations, human resources, and technical and facilities services.

All PDP objectives are designed to prepare students for participation in the NBAA Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Program, a certification program that identifies qualified professionals to lead flight departments and companies that use business aircraft. NBAA updated the PDP objectives to align them with the five CAM Program subject areas.

Established training organizations and educational institutions, known as approved PDP providers, offer courses year-round through a variety of convenient and flexible delivery methods, including on-site seminars, Internet courses and video instruction. The newest PDP course offerings listed below are described by course provider, title and PDP objective:

  • The Aero Institute offers a distance-education course called "Human Resource Management for Aviation," which covers benchmarking company human resource policies and meets PDP Objective PM6.
  • Aviation Training Solutions offers a new course called "Developing Strategic Vision, Mission and Goals in Business Aviation," which is available in a one-day class format with a flexible schedule and meets PDP Objectives L2 and L3.
  • Convergent Performance LLC provides a course in a computer-based-instruction format titled "Maintenance Reliability Certification," which evaluates human performance in aviation maintenance and meets PDP Objective L6.

NBAA seeks new PDP providers to develop additional courses. The deadline for provider and course submissions is June 7, 2010.
