IATA University of St Gallen Certificate of Advanced studies (CAS) in Sustainable Aviation Management aviation training course

The Certificate of Advanced studies (CAS) in Sustainable Aviation Management program offers a full range of modules to provide a comprehensive overview of the burning topic of environmental sustainability in aviation. You will get the opportunity to identify a set of measures you can implement to achieve short, medium and long-term benefits from the environmental perspective while being conscious of financial sustainability. You will also examine how carbon credits are created, the types and locations of carbon offset programs and projects, review the standards that exist for validation/verification of carbon credits, and review the inter-national standards and recommended practice that have been approved to date. You will have the tools to break-down sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) concepts and assess a basic SAF business case. Looking at the human aspect in a company, this program also blends the environmental specific modules with organizational ethics, responsible leadership and risk management. These modules will help and guide you in finding your own answers to what ‘leading responsibly’ means at your workplace and how to engage in responsible decision making and avoid ethical blindness.
