Graduate certificates are short, multi-course academic programs available at the post-baccalaureate level. They’re offered in specialized areas to help professionals and students gain new skills and knowledge and advance their careers. Many accredited colleges and universities offer graduate certificate programs. They are generally one year in length, consist of roughly 3-6 courses, and range from 9-21 credits of advanced coursework. Credits earned can often be applied to a more advanced degree in a related field. In fact, some students enroll in graduate certificate programs instead of graduate school as a way to check out different career options before choosing a school. Many of these programs are available online for students working full-time or for those who need a more flexible schedule.

The Graduate Certificate in Aviation course is designed for current and future Aviation Managers and has a condensed curriculum that concentrates on the practical application of core concepts studied in the MBA(Aviation) program.

Anyone with a passion for aviation can apply. Basic English communication skills are mandatory. Minimum age is 17 years and there is no upper age limit. Aviation professionals and students studying aviation are preferred. Selection is based on all of the above criteria.

This course will be a good addition to your CV, if you can afford it, you should avail this opportunity. In the Aviation business, certifications matter. And, Graduate Certificate is the best of all. It is a concentrated form of MBA in Aviation Management. It is a certification for Aviation Managers. Embry-Riddle is a big name in the Aviation industry. Its name matters. You will be learning about practical applications which is usually not provided during regular bachelor and master’s degree programs (which are long and expensive). When you attach the Graduate Certificate in Aviation with your CV, your job prospects will be greatly enhanced.

Attendance must be at least 80%. Missed classes must be studied through recorded lessons that are provided to the enrolled students. Quizzes and assignments may be given at the discretion of the faculty. Class participation is expected from the students. Typically, there is no final examination.

The course is conducted online. All you need is a computer, or a laptop, or a smart-phone, and a good internet connection. A link with a password will be given to registered students and the registered student can attend the course from anywhere.

However, we will also be having a physical class in Karachi where some of the students who want to physically attend the course, very similar to a conventional class, can do so. The lecture from the teacher in Singapore will be projected on a large screen using multimedia. This will be in real-time, live and interactive; you can ask questions and the teacher can respond back just as you do in a conventional classroom.

This is a modern way of learning where you can literally learn from one of the best in the world, from anywhere in the world. Neither you have to travel to learn, nor the teacher has to travel to teach. This method is cost-effective, tried-out, and considered the modern-way of effective and efficient learning. This is the virtual classroom mode of learning, where you can join in from anywhere, or, if you like, be physically present in the virtual classroom.

Furthermore, the class is also assisted by a local teacher (physically present in the classroom) to assist the students who may have difficulty understanding either the English language expression or the Aviation terms used by the teacher conducting the class from Singapore or USA. This is what is called learning in a facilitated-virtual-classroom, or education in a Blended Learning environment.

Two very successful similar courses by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University were conducted in 2018 and early 2019. The Graduate Certificate in Aviation program is a high-value, high-demand course being offered now at an unbelievably discounted price. It is a golden opportunity that can be availed by all, and you cannot afford to miss it.

All lessons are recorded. So for whatever reason, if a registered student cannot attend the class (due to other important commitment, sickness, or non-availability for any other reason), he/she can get the recorded lesson and watch the recorded video of the entire lesson of the day. Similarly, if a student wants to just revise the lesson or watch a portion of the lesson again he/she can conveniently do so. This is a great attribute of learning in a virtual blended learning environment that is not possible in a conventional mode of learning. The flexibility of timing and ability to repeat the learning session at a time of your choosing is a great attribute that makes this course more attractive and easy for all candidates.
