The successful completion of the International Aviation Snow Academy (previously called Basic Snow Academy) and International Aviation Snow Management Academy (previously called Advanced Snow Academy) provides the attendee with recognition in the industry as a highly trained professional Snow Fighter, ready to enhance airfield safety during the winter months.
Graduates from the International Aviation Snow Management Academy classes earn the distinction of being an "Airport Snow Expert" or A.S.E. which is accredited by the AAAE. Graduates from the International Aviation Snow Academy class earn a certificate only. Lastly, the Snow Management Academy is only instructed at the Snow Symposium in Buffalo and therefore anyone wishing to attend the Snow Management Academy sessions must also attend the Snow Symposium.
