Aviation Industry Leaders Rely on Professional Programs at Embry-Riddle in Daytona Beach for Continuing Education

Professional Programs at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus have concluded a successful year of continuing education offerings, with over 10 seminars attended by more than 185 aviation professionals from around the globe. Organizations who took advantage of the lifelong learning opportunities included Chevron USA, General Atomics, FAA, SkySkopes, Virgin America Airlines, Boeing, L3 Communications, U.S. Air Force, Piper Aircraft, Ghana Civil Aviation Authority and U.S. Customs & Border Protection. 

These business, government and industry leaders received instruction focusing on aviation safety, OSHA, aircraft accident investigation, safety management systems, airline network planning, hypoxia awareness training and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). 

SkySkopes is the leading UAS flight provider in the upper Red River Valley,” said Matt Dunlevy, President and CEO of SkySkopes. “With FAA Part 107 rules on UAS operations being newly released, these training opportunities at Embry-Riddle help keep our University of North Dakota-educated pilots among the most professionally qualified and safest in the nation. These training opportunities are essential to our future growth and the growth of the UAS industry as a whole.”


Professional Programs at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus will increase the short-course seminars available this fall with the introduction of new courses and certificate programs, including a Media Relations in Aircraft Accident Investigation course. This unique three-day workshop is an opportunity to utilize subject- matter experts and on-site lab resources to learn the theory and practical application of managing the public relations environment in an aviation accident-related situation. This course is part of the Aircraft Accident Investigation Certification.

Also new this season will be two aviation law focused seminars that can be taken independently or as part of the U.S. Aviation Law Diploma, a new joint program between Embry-Riddle and the International Air Transport Association (IATA). These seminars will use faculty experts and subject-matter authorities to instruct professionals involved in the business and legal environment of the aviation industry, both nationally and internationally.

These industry-focused courses are designed for aviation professionals involved in the operation, management and supervision of aerospace organizations. The staff at Embry-Riddle’s Professional Programs can also create specialized programs and customized education opportunities either on-campus or on-site. All courses can be completed independently or toward their respective certificate (where applicable).
