“ASA is excited to be extending our global footprint by partnering with experts, Embry-Riddle and JSSI to provide the best valuation courses within the aviation industry,” says International President Gary L. Smith, ASA, MGA.
The first of the two courses, ME201AS – Introduction to Machinery and Equipment Valuation will be held January 11-14, 2015 in Daytona Beach, Florida, and ME201AS – Introduction to Machinery and Equipment Valuation will be held Feb. 5-8, 2015 in Farnborough, England.
“We are delighted that ASA is offering this aviation class just before our Fifth Annual Corporate Jet Investor and Helicopter Investor Conferences in London,” says Alasdair Whyte of Corporate Jet Investor. “Business jets and helicopters are very different assets compared to commercial aircraft or industrial machinery, and the ASA course is a perfect venue for anyone who wants to understand how to value them.”
These courses are for individuals wishing to pursue a career in aviation valuation or for professionals seeking a specialty designation. ASA’s Machinery and Technical Specialties Committee will be offering a single scholarship to an Embry-Riddle student to attend the two courses. Those wishing to apply can contact MTS Education Chair, Richard Berkemeier, ASA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These two courses are part of the pathway to ASA membership and may be taken in place of the four Principles of Valuation (POV) courses.
