The goal of recertification is to evaluate the continued competence of a Certified Aviation Manager. The intent of the recertification program is to help ensure that the CAM stays current with industry issues and maintains the highest standards possible toward proper management credentials within business aviation.
CAM recertification requires the following:
- a maintenance fee of $300 for NBAA Members ($500 for Non-Members)
- four points of recertification credit to be completed every 36 calendar months on the anniversary of the initial examination month.
If four points of recertification credit are not obtained within the 36-month maintenance period, the CAM exam will have to be taken in its entirety to keep CAM certification.
Four-Point Recertification Options
- Four points may be earned by achieving an Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate Degree.
- Four points toward recertification can be obtained by completing a Professional Development Program (PDP)-approved course that meets mulitple PDP objectives. Each PDP objective covered by a PDP course qualifies as two points of recertification credit.
Two-Point Recertification Options
- Two points toward recertification can be obtained by completing a PDP-approved course that satisfys a single PDP objective. Each PDP objective covered by a PDP course qualifies as two points of recertification credit.
