Instructor comments:

Every pilot manages people and operations as part of their career. Whether you end up in charge of a contract flight operation, safety committee, training department or simply the crew on the flight deck you will need some management skills to help make things go smoothly AND you will be expected to have an awarenes of how your operation fits into the profitability of the company. This class give you the opportunity to build a basic toolbox of management knowledge as it applies to flight operations.

This is a fully online course, not remote lecture, so there are no scheduled weekly zoom meetings. It is a 200-level course, and assumes that you have some experience managing your school work. You will need to look under content in the module for each week and manage your time to get all the items done. There is a large component that is based on discussions, and by nature it is critical that you participate in those on schedule. 

That said, there really is an instructor that you can reach out to when you are confused about what you are supposed to be doing or are having challenges keeping up because of the way the world is right now. Please commit to asking for help early.
