Course Approval Process

In This Section

Step 1: Course Proposal

  • For a specific course proposal, the potential instructor completes the Course Profile Form and submits it to the staff liaison for Continuing Education. Through this form, the instructor provides information about the course, including:

    • Synopsis
    • Length
    • Type and suitable deliverable format(s)
    • Sponsoring Technical Committee, if appropriate
    • Instructor name(s) and bio(s)
    • Learning objective/key topics
    • Outline
    • Audience (targeted markets)
    • Materials
  • For general suggestions for new courses, the individual completes the Course Suggestion Form and submits it to the staff liaison.

Step 2: Course Review by AIAA Stakeholder Group

  • The instructor submits the Course Profile Form to the appropriate AIAA Technical Committee (TC) or appropriate AIAA stakeholder group to review it and provide its recommendation for approval/rejection.
  • The TC chair finds a reviewer from the TC to assess the course and complete the AIAA Course Proposal Review/Recommendation Form.

Step 3: Course Review and Selection

  • Once a course is approved, it can be scheduled to be offered online or in conjunction with one of AIAA’s forums, usually the weekend beforehand..
  • AIAA is responsible for selecting all courses to offer, with consult from the Continuing Education Committee and other Committees when warranted.
  • Please refer to “AIAA Continuing Education Guidelines - Courses” for more details about the process for scheduling courses at conferences.
