Graduate Testimonials 2014

“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. It just shows the Sheffield reputation when I see graduates from other schools complaining that they can’t get an interview – I wasn’t even back home to Minneapolis before they called with a job offer. So thanks for the job you do, it obviously opens doors for us as we’re going through the job hunt.”

“I am still dispatching ambulance flights here in Austria. I always remember the good times in Fort Lauderdale with Sheffield almost four years ago…. It was really a good time and I learned a lot. Thank you..”

Hi Sheffield Folks,
July 17, 2014
Thanks again for the excellent dispatch training that I know will further all of our careers.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know I’ve been hired as a dispatcher at Alaska, where I’ve been working in load planning for the past couple of years. I should be starting training in October. In the meantime I’ll be supporting the charter department and doing assistant-type work.
I mentioned something of this to Brett as well, but I wanted to thank you as well for the fine education I received at Sheffield and also for making your course materials available to graduates. Especially when one has been out of school for a while, those really help a lot when reviewing. I definitely felt the technical parts of my interview were the easiest.

Wanted to let you know that I ended up landing the Assistant Dispatcher job with Southwest, and I started training this week. I’ve said it over and over again, but I really appreciate you and your school and I know that I wouldn’t have been as competitive for this job without the training that you guys provided.

Thanks again… Had the interview and it went well. They were very impressed to see Sheffield on my resume, I believe that helped get my foot in the door.

“Hi, Eric Morris,
I wouldn’t be where I am today without your help. Sheffield and yourself prepared me with all the knowledge that I needed and much more.”
Thanks for everything.

… As of today I am happy to inform you that I have just been selected for the next dispatch class that starts July 7th. Two other Sheffield grad’s will also be in the class with me. (that I know of)
Keep in touch,

I graduated last July 2013 from the distance learning / 5-day residency course…thanks also for the course instruction- been in Delta dispatch almost a year now – talk about a worthwhile investment!

“I just wanted to thank you for all of the help. I had my second interview last Friday and was offered the Assistant Dispatcher position at SWA. I’m so excited! I start down there June 30.
Thank you both, I truly appreciate what you’ve done for me!”

Thanks for your quick response to our request. I was amazed that you still remembered that I was your student in 2009. I love Sheffield and with time I have come to appreciate the training you gave me. I thought then that you were too hard on us but I have seen the difference between myself and colleagues who attended other Dispatcher Schools. I am more knowledgeable than them in terms of practical dispatching.. Thanks a lot for the impact.

How are you? I would like to say thank you again for best training ever. Now I became Flight Dispatcher Chief in our Airline and I’m very happy with that. Thank you Eric, Brett, (and everyone) for everything. Now we plan to send at least one more guy for Sheffield training and I will contact you when everything will be ready. Thanks a lot my friends!

I wanted to pass another note of thanks to you and your staff.
Everyone was very fair, the attention to detail in the courseware was great, and this experience made me proud of the profession we all lead.
Again, thank you for the intense but yet relaxed approach you bring to the learning process and allow your staff to manage our learning as they do very well.
All the best in the future and trust me, all I will be talking about is Sheffield when it comes to training at its finest.

Good Morning Eric!
March 10, 2014
Thank you for your recommendation letter, I really appreciate it. As I told to Mr Bories on the day of my final exam, I will definitely be spending an outstanding word about your School. I really enjoyed the course, the professionality of the staff and all the organization behind all the services you offered. The expectations given by your School’s reputation were confirmed..

Dear Mr. Morris:
…I did little research of my own among the 100 or so dispatchers we employ with our Chautauqua, Shuttle America and Republic operations. The unanimous recommendation for schools to consider was Sheffield.

(A Sheffield graduate) is a client of mine and he told me to tell you hi. Being alumni from Sheffield goes farther than what some people think. It creates an immediate bond because you know you are dealing with someone who has been trained by the best. After speaking with him it was refreshing to know you still hold the highest standards in the industry and your course still produces the most desirable candidates makes me proud to have attended and be a part of your School’s family. Very shortly I will be more involved in hiring new flight planners …

“I’d just like to pass you my thanks for everything that you’ve done for (our employees). I was in very regular contact with them and they couldn’t speak highly enough of your instructors and staff. I met them both with a bottle of Bubbly when they arrived back on Tuesday evening and we are going to take them out for a big celebratory meal! Thanks, once again.

“The AIFP, ETOPS, & EWINS courses provided additional information and understanding on the topics that I did not have (earlier). The courses were worth attending and I would recommend that others attend.”

“Excellent complement after completing the (certification) course!”

“Thanks for everything. I learned so much and can’t wait to go back to work & apply all the information I got at this school! Thanks!”

“Airlines do indeed take a look at where you went to school. Especially if you’re coming into your first job. Take it from a guy that has hired dispatchers in the past. Some (schools) go above and beyond the rather basic Part 65 requirements and this is where they differ and airlines notice. Every school has indeed placed some of their graduates, however school selection is one of those little things that can give you a small leg up over the competition.
Your school decision lays the foundation for your whole career!”

I hope everything is going great over there for you guys at Sheffield. The new website is looking very nice.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you and Eric for the excellent job you do.
From the moment I started Phase I online, I knew it was a hard and fast-paced program. There were tough times along the way, but thanks to your advices and understanding I was able to complete it. You have a great instructor. From the get-go he was straight forward about how tough the course would be if we didn’t work hard for it. At the same time, he was there to help every step of the way, not just as an instructor, but as person who genuinely wanted you to succeed.
We’ll begin training soon at Global Ops Center / Western Global Airlines in Sarasota, FL and I can’t wait to put my experience and knowledge to good use.
Once again, thank you so much for everything and I wish you all the best. Aviation is a small world, who knows if we meet again in the near future.

I hope this message finds you well. After recently completing the interview process, I have been offered an Alaska Airlines Aircraft Dispatcher position!

Thank you again for all your help lately. I’ve spoken to many people working at United and all I hear is “Sheffield is THE place to attend school.” I know there are closer schools, but nobody comes recommended like you guys, and some are not recommended at all. Just unsure which class to take – some other friends took the 5-week class and others took the 2-week class, but I guess I’ll decide soon.
P.B. (future Sheffield student)
