Certificate in Aviation

Top Course Studies in Aviation

Aviation

The modern world relies substantially on air travel and transport. At any one time, there are hundreds of planes in the air, and someone must be in charge to make sure they are all safe and following protocols.

For people wondering how air travel can be so well-managed, they should really be asking themselves, “What is a Certificate in Aviation?” The brief answer is it is a method for future aviation managers to learn basic and advanced concepts regarding air safety, procedure, and scheduling. Some of the lessons include: airport operations, air transport fundamentals, revenue management, and strategic leadership.

Although not all airlines and airports require that all employees have this certificate, it is important for people in a managerial position to hold the certification. Some of the benefits of earning this particular award may be better salary at your current job or the opportunity to apply for a position with more upward mobility.

The monetary cost of the certificate program in question is determined by the school administration, so every program is different. To learn exactly how much money you must set aside for this program, it is best to directly contact the school.

There are many non-engineering aviation careers where the job holder benefits from having this and other kinds of air transport certificates. Most of the jobs pertain to the business side of flight, rather than the scientific side. Perhaps the most notable position is air traffic controller.

 

There is no better time than now to investigate and pursue an online certificate program. By working online with the school of your choice, you can earn a valuable certification in less time than through traditional classroom learning alone. Even if you want to go to a classroom, using an online portal is the best way to find a program that fits your needs. Get started now, and search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Best Certificate Programs in Aviation 2017. The Aircraft Dispatcher Program is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved training that incorporates classroom and lab instruction preparing Aircraft Dispatcher students to pass the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Written, Oral and Practical Certification Exams which are administered by FAA Designated Aircraft Dispatcher Examiners upon graduation. This certification is highly recognized and powerful. Those who possess it have the opportunity to apply for positions not only as Flight Dispatchers, but also as airline Crew Schedulers, Crew Planners, Navigation Data-base Specialists, Meteorology Assistants, Airport Flight Operations Agents, Ramp Control Tower Agents, and many other flight operations positions. Most candidates who hold the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher certificate will succeed in obtaining almost immediate employment in the airline industry. And some of the benefits are unique to the job description. Airline Dispatchers are "not" Air Traffic Controllers. Air Traffic Controllers work for the FAA, and separate air traffic. Think of Air Traffic Controllers as "traffic cops." Aircraft Dispatchers work in the field of Airline Operational Control, in the airline’s “Nerve Center,” an environment very similar to NASA’s Mission Control. As a FAA Licensed Aircraft Dispatcher, you are authorized by the FAA to exercise equal authority (50/50) and shared decision making with the Pilot-in-Command (Airline Captain) of each flight under your control. Aircraft Dispatchers control the airlines’ Flight Operation (sometimes globally), typically all from one centralized Operations Control Center (OCC) location. Working “behind the scenes,” side by side with other airline professionals like senior Dispatch Managers, Crew Schedulers and... [-]
