It takes a specialized skill set to implement Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-accepted wildlife management plans or to have a role that involves controlling wildlife hazards at airports. Since 2006, Embry-Riddle Worldwide has offered Airport Wildlife Hazard Management Workshops at a variety of locations throughout the year.
The workshops are acceptable by the FAA Administrator for complying with FAA Advisory Circular 150/5200-36a, which addresses qualifications for wildlife biologists to conduct airport wildlife assessments and write airport wildlife plans. This course also qualifies airport personnel to conduct airport wildlife mitigation and satisfies part of the annual wildlife hazard management requirements of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 139. They are suitable for those who train airport personnel involved in implementing FAA approved wildlife hazard management plans, as well as anyone directly involved in controlling wildlife hazards on airports.
