Hi Eric. They just called me back from Colgan Air to let me know that I got the job! I am going there to do initial training and orientation… I am very excited and I can’t express in words how happy I am that I made the decision to come to your school this past January. This is the beginning of a new, exciting and rewarding career for me and I owe you a big debt of gratitude because YOU are the ones that made it all possible. I finally have the job that I love and I am amazed how quickly I have been able to find it…

Please extend my most heartfelt thanks to Brett for being the great teacher that he is…

Eric, Jordan and Brett,

I wanted to thank you all for everything you provided to me and my collegues in the June/July 2009 dispatcher course. I have to say it was the most difficult thing (educationally at least) I have ever done. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Jordan and Brett are incredibly knowledgeable and you are lucky to have them as part of your team.
Apparently the hard work and incredible training you have given me means something. Less than a week out of class and I had already recieved a call from Pinnacle Airlines. I am being flown to Memphis tomorrow for my second interview. I am sure that the knowledge you have given me will prepare me well for whichever company I end up at. Thanks again for everything you have given me, and I’ll be staying in touch.

Class of July 2009: FAA-AD, AIFP, ETOPS, EWINS

I will propose to the management/my employer to send more staff to Sheffield for training!

Mr. Morris,

I thought it might be informative to let you and any potential students
know that Sheffield’s good reputation precedes itself, again. While
visiting the Air Operations Control at UPS, any time I dropped the name “Sheffield” as a likely destination for dispatcher training the reaction was undeniably positive. I had no idea that when UPS started its airline operations they had Sheffield come into Louisville to train their employees, or so I was told by the manager I met with who was one of those students. Those testimonials on your page are to be taken more seriously by prospective students as more than just a marketing tactic- the reputation your program has earned in this operations center is remarkable. I look forward to attending the course and learning as much as possible.

    “I entered my profession, with more knowledge and information than dispatchers who have been practicing their craft for more than ten years. Not only has Sheffield provided a top notch education, but they have also instilled in me the confidence to succeed.” A.Z. Sidebar AZ – Student Testimonial
    “I am a graduate of the Sheffield’s Dispatcher Program. I have been a Captain-Part 121 Airline, Certified Flight/Grnd Instructor, and FAA Designated Check Airman and Sim Instructor (Part 121). From my experience I would rate Sheffield School as outstanding in their field.” PT PT
    “I am a month into my new job at a airline coming out of reorganization, and am helping the training department by referencing the excellent and up to date course book provided to all Sheffield grads.” RW RW
    “This school came highly recommended by multiple past students and EVEN OTHERS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS. Reputation is fantastic from multiple companies that I have worked for.” A. – September 2020
    “Being that half my new hire class dropped out over the course of training, I can confidently say that Sheffield helped to prepare me for the real world.” GT – abridged testimonial – school selection matters

    “After receiving my certificate, I joined a class of 4 experienced dispatchers for Part 121 initial training. Without experience, my preparation at Sheffield enabled me to become active at the same time after the initial training.” PR PR
    “Their reputation of excellence amongst the industry is second to none. Sheffield School of Aeronautics should be seen as the standard of how it can be done and how it should be done. I was hired at a major airline with no dispatch experience.” A.Z. Sidebar AZ
    “I wanted to tell you I got the job offer from Expressjet, and start next month! I think a couple others from class were hired as well.
