I know nothing of age restrictions but I do know that training is 4 months and if I remember correctly, it's held in Omaha, NE (I might be wrong on that though). But I do know that like 50% of the students washout and the stress level is beyond belief...
Check out those age restrictions more though, I can't believe that they'd have one because you're not old at all. Hopefully you'll give me ATC instruction someday!!!

You had better hurry. Less than 31 years to work at a tower, ARTCC, or TRACON. 31 and over you can work at a FSS. Training is held in Oklahoma City, NE, I believe. Lasts 7 months at the academy and then takes a while to become a certified controller. Lots of on the job training. That is assuming you can even get a chance at taking the civil service exam. I don' think they are offering it right now. I could be wrong. Anyway, go to www.atchome.com for more info. Check out the FAA's website and give them a ring.
