FAA Dispatcher Certification
The program allows students to sit for the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aircraft Dispatch certificate exam. Upon successful completion, students will qualify for dispatcher positions in some of today’s trendiest aviation fields.
Aircraft dispatchers share with pilots the ultimate responsibility for a flight’s commencement and completion.
*FAA Written Exam Requirements. There is only one prerequisite for the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher written exam, and that requirement is that the applicants must be at least 21 years of age. Once you have completed the written exam, the test scores are only valid for two years from the date of the examination.
