Attendees Said... 

"The IATA/Embry-Riddle joint U.S. Aviation Law diploma program was extremely valuable, both personally and professionally. I enrolled in my first course with IATA in London and finished my last course at Embry in Daytona in March 2017. Embry’s courses were multi-subject and led by professors at the university, as well as well-respected aviation professionals from various substantive areas."
