Warning

International Students – Be careful of certain claims from others!

(our international friends usually comprise 40-80% of our class roster!!)

International Students: Please note that according to the FAA (Washington, D.C.) it is absolutely NOT LEGAL or authorized for a successful graduate of aircraft dispatcher training to receive final certification (the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate under FAR Part 65) via practical examination testing OUTSIDE OF THE U.S.A.. There are ZERO permitted exemptions (including Part 142) to this rule no matter what you’ve been told by certain course operators running training classes outside of the U.S.A.. We know for a fact that this situation has resulted in more than a few license/certificate SUSPENSIONS/REVOCATIONS in the past. Yes, the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate may be surrendered, suspended, or revoked. Operations were also suspended at more than one “internationally-based aircraft dispatcher training school” once the proper FAA authorities were alerted.

Latest Charade: Part 65 Dispatch Certification in Spanish and other languages. Why pay for a soon-to-be-revoked certificate? The law mandates English.

[Sheffield Note: Do you want to pay 2 tuition amounts and attend 2 courses on 2 continents for 1 legal certificate? Think about it. You can believe the “schools” which have been in business less than 1 decade or the school that initiated Aircraft dispatcher training over 7 DECADES ago. Need FAA references? Email or call us anytime.]
