NBAA Makes Changes To The PDP Program

Association Also Seeks New PDP Providers

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) announces that it has revised and expanded its Professional Development Program (PDP) objectives, bringing the total number of objectives to 30. The changes were made in order to align PDP more closely with the NBAA Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Program, NBAA's formal certification program for current and aspiring flight department managers. The association now seeks new educational providers to develop courses that meet the new PDP objectives.

In 1997, NBAA created the Professional Development Program to prepare flight department personnel for management roles, and the first courses were offered in 1998. The curriculum, developed by a task force of corporate flight department specialists and collegiate aviation educators, originally covered four knowledge area modules: aviation management, business administration, communications and leadership. The 27 original PDP objectives within each area represented the topics to be taught by educational institutions and commercial training providers.

Now, NBAA introduces five new and improved knowledge area modules: leadership, personnel management, operations, technical and facilities services, and business management. These modules together have a total of 30 PDP objectives. The previous modules and objectives will remain in effect for a period of time as the Professional Development Program transitions to the new modules and objectives.

"With the new objectives, PDP offers expanded guidance that will better prepare aspiring managers for management opportunities within a flight department," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "And current business aviation managers taking the courses will have more tools they can immediately apply in their day-to-day work environment."

NBAA is now soliciting new educational providers to offer courses meeting the new PDP objectives. Interested parties should contact NBAA's Jay Evans.
