Acoustical Session:

The Acoustics Session will continue to be offered as an 'in person' seminar. It is offered in Los Angeles on even numbered years, i.e., 2020, 2022, in September.
Impact of COVID-19 on the in-person 2020 Recurrent Training for Acoustic Designees - March 17, 2020. As a result of the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the United States, the Delegation and Organizational Procedures Branch (AIR-6F0) is temporarily suspending the scheduling of in-person 2020 Recurrent Training for Acoustic Designees. At this time we plan to hold this training in Los Angeles sometime in calendar year 2020, but until further travel related guidance is available from the Department of Transportation we do not plan to schedule this training event. Once a date is established for this training, all acoustic DERs and ODA Unit members with acoustics authority will be notified by email.

Software Session:
The Software Session is offered through AIR-940. Information for this course can be on found on the Aircraft Certification Software website.
