Dispatcher Training

Thu Jan 26, 2006 5:25 am

So I've decided to get my dispatchers license. I am living in Los Angeles right now, and would love to get the training out here and then take the test, but I can't seem to find any schools around. Does anyone know of any out here? If not I am thinking I will just go back to NY and get the training at Flight Safety International. Any other suggestions maybe from dispatchers?

The course lasts 6 weeks. Passed first time, but lot's (and I mean lots) of work both inside and outside of class was required. It was worth it though!  Smile

My youngest son is currentley in class at Sheffield in FLL and has nothing but rave reviews. I have quite a few aviation friends who strongly recommend it.

I am not sure if Jeppesen does their Dipatch training here in California?

If your schedule if flexiable, if you want, you can observe some of the performance classes that we have.

I went to the school in Tucson. No matter how you look at it, they will all cost you the same for schooling and board. The things that you will want to consider here is whether you want to have your own vehicle there, or not.

One thing about the dispatching, though, is that no matter what school you go to, the operation that hires you will train you to THEIR specifications.

Very true & each airline has their own way of Dispatching, but, without the license you don't get hired.....

I went to the Airline Flight Dispatcher Training Center located near D/FW back in 1993. Very happy with the training that I had there and I would recommend it to anyone.
I know one of the principals of the TUS school as well and would recommend their school too.

I'm also thinking about getting into dispatching. Is there anything you need to do before these classes as prep? I'm planning on trying to spend a few hours with WN dispatch when I go to DAL in a few months for a class, and bugging them with a LOT of questions.
