Dispatcher Certification

We are one of only seven colleges in the nation approved by the FAA to offer dispatcher certification. A dispatcher at an airline company shares responsibility with the pilot for the safe operation of the flight. Dispatchers handle such details as weather updates, maintenance issues, diverts, weight and balance, and aircraft performance. By completing the required classes for the aeronautical science major, students are prepared to take a dispatcher practical test. After graduation they then could get a job as a dispatcher, which can be a career in itself, or can be a great "foot in the door" at an airline and strong bullet on a pilot resume.
