Bookmark and Share

Presented by: Aviem International and the Family Assistance Foundation

Held in conjunction with the 2013 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2013) in Las Vegas.

This two-day workshop, designed specifically for business aviation by Aviem International, Higher Resources, Inc., and the Family Assistance Foundation, will review the challenges faced by any organization experiencing a serious aviation-related accident. Participants will gain important skills and materials needed to develop or enhance their organization's emergency response plans. The "hands on" course will utilize multiple instructional methods including lecture, group discussion, breakout groups, video clips, and role plays for survivor assistance and media interactions.

The course is conducted by several facilitators, who all bring significant expertise in their given areas. In addition, this is the only course that provides crucial information on next of kin support, family assistance and humanitarian assistance issues based on 28 years of research in working with passenger and family survivors of aviation and other disasters, providing participants with the latest best practices available today.

All participants will receive the following:

  • A course participant guide, a useful reference tool for participants in their post-course planning efforts.
  • Various sample plan documents, checklists and other planning materials to assist them with the development of their own emergency plans.
  • Upon course completion, a Certificate of Completion.

The course will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on October 20 and 21. Continental breakfast will be provided both days, beginning at 7:30 a.m.

This course fulfills NBAA PDP Operations Objective 5.
