Alexandria, Va. - The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) is proud to announce the release of the NATA Safety 1st Line Service Supervision & Training Management Online (Supervisor Online) program.
The Supervisor Online program provides the training fixed base operators' (FBO) line supervisors and managers need to become more proficient in lesson planning, supervising staff, motivating others, communicating and coaching a team. Additional modules will cover many other topics, including fuel servicing, personal protective equipment, hazard communication, and fire safety.
"NATA members asked for online supervisor training, and we are pleased to be able to respond quickly to this need by combining our extensive line service training expertise with our industry-recognized online training platform," said NATA President and CEO Thomas L. Hendricks. "The training of our members in safety and efficiency is always a priority for NATA and will continue to take precedence with this and other new initiatives to be announced in the coming weeks."
Once the online course is completed, it will fulfill the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) 139.321 supervisory requirements. The employee's certificates will meet both the 14 CFR Part 139 Section 321 (e)1 supervisor fire safety training requirements and the Line Service Supervisor Training requirements. In addition to the online course curriculum, participants are provided with line service supervisor training guides containing training resources, lesson plans and trainer guidance to help support internal training programs after certification.
"We recognize that traveling budgets are limited and employee scheduling is tight for many of our members," stated NATA Vice President Amy B. Koranda. "Our Supervisor Online program opens our comprehensive training to an even broader audience than we have been able to reach in the past. At the same time, NATA is remaining supportive of the immense value of face-to-face interactions in networking, idea exchange and sharing of best practices by continuing to offer its popular seminar series."
NATA Safety 1st will hold its Line Service Supervisor Training (LSST) March 11-12, 2013, at the Las Vegas Hotel during the NATA Spring Training seminar series. The LSST is an informative in-person seminar that also fulfills the FAA 139.321 supervisor requirements. This high-impact, high-energy seminar includes guided group debates, interactive discussions and various case studies designed to take FBO supervisors and managers to a new level of leadership.
