Abstract of paper presented at Bird Strike Committee USA/Canada Meeting, Lake Mary and Sanford, Florida, August 18–21, 2008.


With the June 2006 release of FAA Advisory Circular 150-5200-36 Qualifications for Wildlife Biologists, a minimum wildlife hazard management curriculum was established for the initial and recurrent training of airport personnel involved in implementing a FAA approved Wildlife Hazard Management Plan. This presentation will show some of the existing programs and “best training” practices from airports across the country along with some future programs. Information offered in this presentation will provide airports and personnel involved in training, ideas on how to better develop and deliver their wildlife management training programs.
