Professional Flight Crew Development and Air Transport Operations Certificate (Post Secondary)

This certificate program provides students with an in-depth background in multi-crew, high altitude and high speed air transport aircraft operations. The focus of the program is in the development of knowledge and skills that allows students to successfully transition from the light aircraft used in general aviation to high performance turboprop air transport aircraft used in air carrier, business and commuter airline operations. The program is intended to augment the B.S. in flight technology degree for students presently pursuing the degree and students returning to update their existing degree. It is also intended to serve pilots seeking to upgrade their professional skills, knowledge and flight credentials.

Kent State University admission requirements apply, including assessment testing. Students may enroll in the program even if they have prior degrees. Students must declare themselves as a certificate candidate prior to completing half of the courses and must complete a minimum of 15 credits at Kent State University.
