Daytona Beach, Florida’s Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide has just initiated its online Airport Planning, Design and Development Certificate Program designed for airport professionals desiring to stay ahead of the curve in this rapidly evolving field.
Shawn Arena has been tapped to lead the program. As an airport industry professional with 27 years of experience, he has previously held leadership positions at commercial and general aviation airfields. Arena’s credits include A.A. E. (Accredited Airport Executive) and he participates actively in several boards from local to national levels.
Challenges for the aviation industry have increased exponentially in the last decade or so, with heightened security requirements and changing facility needs. Airport planners, directors, and managers, along with air traffic controllers, will have a choice of six current courses in the certificate program. Additional subjects slated to launch in the future include Airport Safety and Certification; Terminal Planning; Airport Sustainability and Environmental Management; and Talent Acquisition and Workforce Planning.
