Not only can Sheffield prepare you to ace your FAA-examination for your aircraft dispatching certificate, but we will do so in our rigorous two to five-week residency training program. Course schedules for our aircraft dispatcher programs vary, but all classes are held from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and, depending on the time frame chosen, distance learning may be required.

Too busy for in-class sessions? Not a problem. Sheffield is one of few FAA-approved aviation schools that allow distance learning. Our online aircraft certification program is recommended for extremely disciplined students that will be able to meet the demands of the course. Motivated individuals that enroll in the online aircraft dispatcher course will be given four-month access to the online program to complete all assignments; this is Phase 1 of the program. Phase 2 consists of a 1-week, 40 hour residency in our Fort Lauderdale location. After both phases have been completed, the student is required to take the practical examination in-person.

Sheffield has developed a very strong reputation in the aviation industry, which has helped graduates be recruited by both private and commercial airlines.
