Announcing "The TARMAC" – Training ARound MMAC
Vol.6 Issue 5
Splash image for TARMAC.

In airport operations the tarmac is the paved area where planes come to be fueled, loaded with cargo and passengers, and are prepared for final take-off. The planes are carefully prepped, equipped, and made ready for their mission. The Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center’s (MMAC) Training Program provides a similar function. FAA MMAC employees come to the Training Program and join online with the FAA’s Learning Management System (LMS) to receive the training they need to perform their jobs. The Training Program assists members with maintaining their job qualifications, gaining new skills, and building professional proficiencies. The Training Program, like an airport tarmac, is a place where FAA members prepare for fulfilling their individual missions before they are "launched" to fulfill their duties.

The TARMAC: Training ARound MMAC is a new training newsletter that will be sent out periodically to broadcast upcoming training opportunities and information. Items such as Oklahoma Federal Executive Board (OKFEB) training, FAA Leadership and Learning Institute (FLLI) training and other local opportunities will be included. News and notices on LMS Mandatory Training will also be a part of the shared information. The goal of The TARMAC is to consolidate training information for employees of the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center into one accessible, streamlined source.
