ABOUT

ADTC

The "thing" you buy from a dispatch school should be the education to successfully interview and get the job, not to earn a piece of plastic to put in your pocket. We are the only school to prepare it's students for testing at major airlines.

 

All dispatch schools are regulated by the FAA to teach same topics. These are the topics that students are tested on for certification. To get hired, especially at major airlines, candidates must pass a rigorous testing and interview process that is more difficult than the testing to earn the certification from the FAA and only the top performers get selected.

Our hearts go out to graduates of other programs with a plastic card in their pockets that says "Aircraft Dispatcher" in their pockets but can't get a job as a dispatcher because they were not set up for success. We have seen many people from other schools suffer the frustration of failing assessment tests and interviews and not getting the job as a result. Some, after years of failure, give up on their dream.

This is where ADTC is different! We'll let our graduates and refresher students tell the story from here!

Why we do not use online training. Chris

All of our training is done in person. Due to the nature of the material being taught it is not something that easily self-taught. We are the only dispatch school in the country with our unbeatable 100% pass rate on the final exam. However we have seen what failure notices look like for the final exam because we get students who have taken courses at other schools. Many of those are due to partial distance-learning programs. The only case we would give a nod of approval to a partial distance learning course is if that program only accepted pilots and other experienced aviators however this is not the case. Anything else we would deem predatory, as we have seen the results of such programs time and time again.

 

That being said there is some reading we can suggest before you take a course, most of which is available for free online. One being the AC 00-6B, you will find it attached to this email. This is a weather theory book which can give you a basic understanding of weather we can build on in class!

 

If you cannot afford the time off to take the full course, it can be broken up into two portions one being two weeks and the other three. I would not, however, advise a person to take a partial distance-learning course. There are roughly 26,000 people with FAA Aircraft Dispatcher certificates but the entire industry is about 5,000 people. It not too difficult to learn just barely enough to get the certificate however performing well in interviews requires more knowledge and skills.

We do not offer online courses here at ADTC, all of our training is done in classroom. We find that dispatch material is not easily self-taught. we have seen what failure notices look like for the final exam because we get students who have taken courses at other schools, many of which are due to partial distance-learning programs. Experienced aviators may be able to distance learn, but anything else is more predatory as we have seen the results of such programs. If you cannot afford the time off to take the full course, it can be broken up into two portions one being two weeks and the other three.

That being said there is some reading we can suggest before you take a course, most of which is available for free online. One is the AC 00-6B, you will find it attached to this email. The other is a weather theory book which can give you a basic understanding that we will expand on in class.

 

We are the only dispatch school in the country with our unbeatable 100% pass rate on the final exam. This is not a guarantee but is reflective of our philosophy. A certificate alone is worthless, we are after you landing a job and a career. You want to do more than pass the tests, you want to be ready for the interviews! There are roughly 26,000 people with FAA Aircraft Dispatcher licenses but employed the entire industry is about 5,000 people. Let's be one of the five thousand!

100% Really?
