Certified Aviation Manager Credit Available for SDC2015 Education Sessions

Aug. 22, 2014

Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) program credit will again be available to people who attend education sessions at NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC2015), set for Feb. 3 to 6, 2015, in San Jose, CA.

NBAA’s CAM Program is a certification process for business aviation professionals, and is the first aviation-related program to receive accreditation through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.

“We are thrilled to provide attendees of the 2015 Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference with this opportunity to earn Certified Aviation Manager credit,” said Jo Damato, NBAA’s director of educational development and strategy and the staff liaison to the Schedulers & Dispatchers (S&D) Committee. “I continue to be impressed by the high caliber of professionals attending the Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference each year. Many individuals who attend this event are performing leadership functions and would be great candidates for CAM certification.”

CAM candidates must earn eligibility points through employment history, formal education, licensing and certification and professional development and they must successfully complete the CAM examination. CAM candidates may use Professional Development Programs (PDPs) on topics such as business management, human resources, leadership, operations and technical and facilities services to earn eligibility points. Current CAM professionals must provide NBAA with documentation supporting the continuation of their CAM certification every three years, and may use these courses for recertification purposes.

SDC2015 education sessions include: “Beginning Scheduling and Advance Scheduling Part 91 and Part 135,” “Which Way Should I Go? Determining How to File the Right Flight Route,” “Brazil Operations,” “Business Aviation Hot Topics,” “NOTAM Modernization in the National Airspace System” and much more.

“All of the educational sessions at Schedulers & Dispatchers incorporate one or more of the five domains tested on the CAM exam – leadership, human resources, operations, technical and facilities services and business management,” said Damato. “Attendees can now receive credit toward joining the elite group of CAM business aviation professionals for attending these sessions.”
