Dispatcher, Maintenance Training Offered at WAI Conference

By February 26, 2013

Follow me on:

This year's International Women in Aviation Conference will offer participants new or recurrent training that focuses on one of three different career topics, according to a press release from Women in Aviation, International.

The conference, organized by nonprofit group Women in Aviation, International, will take place March 14-16 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville.

Attendees will be able to attend an industry exhibit hall, network with many other aviation peers and attend education and training sessions.

The training sessions this year will include aircraft dispatcher recurrent training, a Part 121 program conducted by Airline Ground Schools that includes 16 hours of training, a completion certificate and a disk with the training material on it.

Pilots can attend the SAFE Pilot Proficiency Program, which will provide free simulator sessions from Redbird Flight Simulations. The sessions will allow pilots to practice in a variety of emergency situations.

Finally, AWAM will be hosting an FAA Maintenance Recurrent Training session that meets FAA regulations for IA (Inspection Authorization) renewal.

Both the dispatcher course and the maintenance training are open to current employees in the field as well anyone interested in that particular career path.
