Expand Your Career With NBAA Certificate Programs

NBAA offers two certificate programs designed to help business aviation professionals grow in their careers.

“The NBAA Safety Manager Certificate and Business Aircraft Scheduler Certificate programs offer industry professionals the ability to grow in their careers on their own time frame, said NBAA Director, Certification Tyler Austin. “These programs not only elevate individual skills but also contribute to the overall safety and advancement of business aviation.”

The Safety Manager Certificate program – created by NBAA’s Safety Committee in collaboration with Advanced Aircrew Academy, Convergent Performance and Fireside Partners – focuses on six key areas of safety management: leadership, safety policy, risk management, safety assurance, emergency response and safety promotion.

After completion, participants will be able to effectively manage a business aviation organization’s safety management efforts, including its safety management system. This certificate also is approved for NBAA Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) credit.

The Business Aircraft Scheduler Certificate program provides comprehensive introductory- to mid-level training on the duties of a business aircraft scheduler. The program includes nine asynchronous learning modules testing in key areas of aircraft scheduling at an introductory level.

Developed in collaboration with Part 91 scheduler subject matter experts and Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., modules include: business aviation basics, global regulations, technology, safety, real-time trip support and more.

Participants who complete the course will have a working knowledge of best practices surrounding scheduling business aircraft. Successful participants will receive a certificate and a digital badge to validate their knowledge with their peers. The Business Aircraft Scheduler Certificate is approved for CAM credit.
