Carleton University has partnered with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to launch a Professional Certificate in Air Transport Principles and Policy. The new certificate is designed for aviation and public sector professionals, and is offered by Carleton’s School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA) and delivered by the Transportation Policy and Innovation Centre (TPIC). The certificate focuses on providing insight on the operation of the aviation industry and how decisions impact the sector through training on topics such as business practices and economics. “Governments sometimes formulate policy with incomplete information about the economic imperatives facing this industry,” said TPIC leader Dr Marc Rioux. “The program intends to close this knowledge gap.” Carleton Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
