Aircraft Dispatcher Certification*
The Aircraft Dispatcher Certification program is available at the Prescott Campus. Dispatcher preparation is based on the successful completion of the following courses and the applicable prerequisites.
|AS 221||Instrument Pilot Operations||3|
|AS 310||Aircraft Performance||3|
|AS 350||Domestic and International Navigation||3|
|AS 410||Airline Dispatch Operations||3|
|AT 200||Air Traffic Basics I||3|
|WX 201||Survey of Meteorology||3|
|WX 301||Aviation Weather||3|
AS 410 serves as the capstone course for the Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Program.
Embry-Riddle occasionally changes a course number designator or nomenclature without materially affecting course content. In these cases, the program evaluator will substitute the equivalent course for those above.
For those students who possess a Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate with Instrument Rating, this training and experience may be used as an equivalent for AS 221, AT 200, or both, and constitutes a minimum of 70 hours of experience.
*This program is offered within the academic programs at ERAU and not as separate training. Qualification for FAA testing normally requires a minimum of six semesters of instruction. To complete the Aircraft Dispatcher Certification program, the student must earn a “C” grade or higher in all required courses.
