The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Act) mandated the establishment and implementation of a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concession DBE (ACDBE) certification training program for officials or agents of airport sponsors who certify firms as meeting airport DBE and ACDBE requirements.

The FAA Office of Civil Rights has taken the lead in implementing a national training program to comply with the Act's requirement to have this program in place by February 15, 2013. The following documents will address the implementation and future enhancement of the DBE/ACDBE Certification Training Program.
