After an undergraduate degree, you can learn a little more about a subject with a graduate certificate. Earning one takes less time than a graduate degree but is still sought by employers who want up-to-date employees.

More specifically, what is a graduate certificate in aviation? This kind of certificate generally has modest prerequisites where you may be able to begin with a high school diploma and some technical experience. Most programs look at theory and practice when it comes to airplane design and operation. The coursework can be suitable for transfer to other schools to get a bachelor's. These courses may include aviation safety, flight instruction, civil aviation and aeronautical engineering.

Aviation requires technical and physical skills, and some you may learn include hand-eye-coordination, attention to detail and mechanical troubleshooting. Each of these can be applied in your daily setting to solve minor problems such as a broken coffeemaker or missing car keys.

Your choice of school can influence the cost of your graduate certificate. School size and location are some factors involved in this cost difference, as well as the availability of online classes. You should also consider the cost of books when budgeting for a certificate.

Whether you focused more on the theoretical or applied side of aviation can have some impact on the jobs you may qualify for. Theoretical positions include repairs coordinator, data analyst and logistics operator. For more hands-on work in aviation, try looking for jobs as a pilot, co-pilot or safety inspector. Aviation jobs may involve planes, helicopters or aircraft carriers. These jobs can be found in business, industry and government.

Look for graduate certificates in aviation at schools all over the world. Some offer online courses that can be more convenient if you are working. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
