Washington, DC, June 23, 2003 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Certification Steering Committee is pleased to announce the release of the new Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Study Guide. The purpose of the CAM Study Guide is to assist the applicant in preparing to take the Certified Aviation Manager Examination, which will be offered for the first time on Monday, October 6, 2003, in Orlando, FL.
Provided on CD-ROM, the CAM Study Guide provides a description of the CAM Exam, a list of suggested primary and secondary reference material, practice exam questions and study tips. Many of the suggested primary references as well as a copy of the CAM Exam Application also are included on this CD-ROM.
CAM Exam questions will be updated on a regular basis in response to changes in corporate philosophies, strategic visions and government regulations. In turn, the CAM Study Guide – including practice exam questions and primary references provided – also will be revised on an annual basis to ensure that it is up-to-date and in line with changes made to the exam.
NBAA developed the Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Program for individuals either currently leading business flight departments or aspiring to do so, to enhance their professional credibility and to recognize them for meeting certain educational and management requirements. A fundamental purpose of the CAM Program is to promote the interests of business aviation stakeholders – including employers, direct users of the corporate flight department and others such as the general public – by identifying and certifying flight department managers who have successfully demonstrated knowledge and skills in the management of business aviation.
Certification will be granted to an individual applicant only after the knowledge and/or skill of the individual has been evaluated and determined to meet certification criteria. The certification of individuals through the CAM Program will improve the professionalism of business aviation, shape the industry and its standards, establish the direction for its future, and enhance the level of management skills for all managers within a flight department.
NBAA represents the aviation interests of more than 7,300 companies that own or operate general aviation aircraft as an aid to the conduct of their business, or are involved with business aviation. NBAA Member Companies earn annual revenues approaching $5 trillion – a number that is about half the gross domestic product – and employ more than 19 million people worldwide. The NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention is the world’s largest display of civil aviation products and services.
