“All my instructors were very professional and understanding of my on demand flying schedule. I learned a lot from all the different subjects and I would recommend the program to my peers. I completed the entire certificate in 12 months. It was hard work but well worth it. I was offered a promotion within my company to Assistant Director of Training as a result of obtaining my CAMC certificate.” – Manuel C.
