Thanks everybody! I just got the job at Hawaiian Airline’s international dispatch office. The workshops (AIFP, ETOPS, EWINS) on my resume really helped. Have a great day!

I like many others including past, current, and future students of Sheffield chose Sheffield because of the quality of training that is provided. Knowing that at the end of our training we are given the opportunity to showcase our newly learned skills is a highly rewarding feeling. Being able to walk out into the job market with our dispatcher certificate gives us a leg up on others applying for the same position…

Great! Thanks Eric. I’m well aware of how far the school has come, in my class back in 1980 we used to jokingly say that your dad’s biggest expense was paper and toner for the copy machine.
Just before I retired from FedEx I was a GOC training and standards instructor and taught many initial classes, the Sheffield students always seemed much better prepared than the others.

Just want to say thank you so much for the instruction that you provided me and the class. … the training I got from you is going to be extremely valuable when I do finally get the chance to move up.

I hope you’re doing well?! It has been a while since we last spoke, last time was my exam on April 1st. Once again I want to thank you for the great time at your school, I’ve learned a lot. Your reputation here in Switzerland is very good, I was at Ebace in Geneva, a Corporate Jet exhibition, where everybody kept telling me that it was a very smart move to attend your course.

I graduated from Sheffield in April of 1995. I was offered an interview with an airline a few days before I graduated. I got the job because of the Sheffield name. Sheffield is highly regarded in the aviation industry. I will say that the school is not a “license factory” because you will earn the license. Should you choose to attend you won’t regret it.

The class was a great experience. (You have) a wonderful instructor and I felt the school really supported me and provided me with all of the tools I needed to enable me to be successful in class. I really feel like the preparation the school provides, while tough, will really be an advantage for when I go on that first dispatch interview.
Thanks again to the school for the wonderful program and especially providing a two-week course for those that may not be able to attend the full five weeks. It is really a great service to do that.

Just so you know, I got the job I wanted, thanks to Sheffield. I had one place in mind to work. They were hiring when I graduated. I applied along with 211 other applicants for four slots (recession job market). I was one of the four selected. I really enjoy this work and firmly believe I have the best job in aviation. I am in my second year and could not be happier with this career. My only regret is that I
didn’t get into this sooner. Thanks!

Firstly, let me start with hello. Hope all is well.
Ya know, I have to be honest, (the instructor) told us in class one day, when it was getting tuff (so that was just after day 1, lol) to just keep going, it would be worth it in the end. He was absolutely right. I’m very proud of that license and how hard I worked to get it. I listen to people who went to other schools and mentally compare it to the level of education I received there and it’s just a world of difference. So Thank you…
Appreciate all your help,

Thank you very much. I really enjoyed my experience at Sheffield!

I know it’s been a while since we last spoke (about 8 months), but I wanted to email and say hello, and thank you! It’s been an interesting 8 months to say the least. You really weren’t kidding when you said getting your dispatch license was only the beginning. I learn something new every day.
I finished my probationary period in the beginning of January, and have successfully worked through a full summer and half of a winter dispatching for Airtran Airways.
You’ll be glad to know that I’ve been pitching your school to anyone who asks, and without the hard work that you and you’re colleges have put in, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today, and I truly want to thank you for that. Attending Sheffield was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. If there’s anything I can do to help you out in anyway, please don’t hesitate to ask.
I hope you and you’re family had a great holiday season, and thank you. Tell everyone I said hi.

I am now working as a dispatcher/flight follower for Sky Lease Cargo (d/b/a Tradewinds Airlines) in Greensboro NC. Been on the job since the beginning of December and so far everything’s going well. I’ve been learning a lot on the job and it’s providing me with plenty of challenges and real-world international flight planning experience. I’d like to thank you again for the excellent instruction I received in your course. I believe graduation from your program is the main reason I got this job.

Wow, it’s hard to believe that we’ll be in FLL soon. The dispatchers at work have been so supportive. When things quiet down in the evenings, a couple of the guys will throw questions out to me to quiz me. This has been the first on-line course I’ve taken, and the course is really well designed to break the material down into digestable parts, while the homeworks and quizzes really challenge you to ensure that you’ve taken it all in. Obviously, that is the point, I know. We have a lot of Sheffield grads in the office, and they all speak very highly of their experience. I am very excited to get down there and finish up my studies.
