Conklin & de Decker Presents Helo Mx Management
Management–Essential Tools for Your New Role” seminar independently for the first time in the Dallas/Fort Worth area on March 28 and 29. The program was presented by the company for many years through the Helicopter Association International. “We are planning to offer the seminar annually at different locations to make it more accessible,” Brandon Battles, Conklin & de Decker vice president, told AIN. “We’re also currently working with the FAA to get IA credit approval,” he added. The two-day seminar focuses on providing helicopter maintenance managers the tools necessary to work in a management position. “So often in our industry, technicians are promoted to management positions because they’re good technicians. Rarely do they have exposure to the business side of the operation. We look at budgeting, managing inventory, developing information systems to help manage, along with people management skills and helping students see their role as it relates to the overall organization,” said Battles. Registration is $800 with a $200 early-bird discount through February 6.
