Washington, DC, December 18, 2009 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced the approval of six new Professional Development Program (PDP) Courses offered by five different PDP providers. NBAA also seeks new educational providers to develop additional courses.The new offerings listed below are described by course number, title and PDP objective.

NBAA’s Professional Development Program provides a curriculum for the education of current and future business aviation managers. The program encourages participation in coursework, recognizes outstanding candidates and participants, and rewards those seeking careers in business aviation.

PDP Courses also are a means of preparing individuals to become NBAA Certified Aviation Managers (CAMs), though participation in PDP is not required for participation in the CAM Program.

NBAA seeks providers for additional PDP Courses. Traditionally, established training organizations and educational institutions provide PDP Courses through a variety of convenient and flexible delivery methods, including Internet courses, video instructions and on-site seminars. Individuals and organizations interested in becoming PDP-approved providers should contact NBAA. The deadline for provider and course submissions is January 15, 2010; NBAA’s PDP Review Committee will make selections in spring, 2010.
