"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do."
― John Ruskin
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 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 students tell the story from here!
*Refresher students who you will see below originally attended other schools and earned dispatch certificates. After several years of being unsuccessful in interviews, they came to us and then got the job!
"I've worked in commercial aviation for going on two decades now, and I know a lot of people who have attended other dispatch schools in the DFW area--and every single one of them wishes they'd picked ADTC instead!
No other school is more generous with their time and resources than ADTC, and no other school is just as invested in your future success as you are!
After finishing my required 200 hours and getting my certificate, I put in an additional 65 hours at ADTC in the months that followed, free of charge, and those sessions were absolutely instrumental in seeing me receive a dream offer to dispatch at Southwest, which I can't wait to start in February 2022!
Small class sizes, top-notch facilities, and instruction with a personal touch--could not recommend more highly!"
"Can’t say enough good about this training center or Chris. 10 out of 5 Stars. I originally met Chris at another school in the area where I received my certificate. Chris goes out of his way to make sure each and every student understands the material.
After earning my license, I reached out to him here at ADTC where I took his refresher course. I single handedly believe the material I received for this course, gave me the necessary tools I needed to earn my current position as a dispatcher with a major Airline, this is where the other school lacked greatly.
If you're looking for a place to get your license go no further then right here at Aircraft Dispatch Training Center, I wouldn’t recommend any other training center."
ADTC Refresher Student
"An absolutely amazing experience!! I cannot recommend this school enough! Without a doubt the best decision I ever made in advancing my dispatch career.
It’s an intense 5 weeks, but Chris makes the material easy to understand, approachable and FUN. He builds on the concepts without you even realizing how much you’re learning. By the end of the course, you’ve learned so much, it feels like you’ve always known the information.
I’ve never felt more prepared to take on a new job! Within a week of receiving my license, I had 4 job offers and it wouldn’t have been possible without this school.
What’s even better, is they encourage continued learning. Anytime you need a refresher, they encourage you to come back, FOR FREE, to review the materials and prepare for interviews. The support and knowledge Chris offers is unparalleled and you won’t find it anywhere else.
Whether you have a background in aviation or not, Chris sets you up for success through every step of the process. ADTC is THE school to attend if you have an itch for dispatch. Don’t look anywhere else. Call ADTC and get your spot secured for the next class. I promise you won’t regret it!!!"
Chris was a fantastic instructor! There is a lot of information that gets thrown at you but he always makes time for any questions you may have and goes out of his way to ensure you understand the material. His main goal is that you succeed not only in class but in the aircraft dispatching career field.
Even after you graduate, he is still open and available to help you whenever you need it. 100% recommended ADTC to anyone looking to get their dispatch license.
I 100% recommend ADTC! I came into the school with very little airline dispatching knowledge, but Chris and John taught me everything I needed to know to pass the required exams to get my aircraft dispatching license.
This is not where it stops though, what sets ADTC apart from other schools is they truly care about your success post airline dispatching license. Their ultimate goal is to get you hired!
I graduated from dispatch school in October 2020 and now in December I have received a job offer from CommutAir. Before my interview I went to Dallas and worked with Chris in order to get prepared for my interview.
This school truly wants you to be successful, and that is why I am happy I chose them over other dispatching schools.
"Arguably the best school to get certified in dispatch. With what you learn here you are guaranteed to get a job in the field, the instructor Chris makes sure of it.
Classes are small so there is lots of one on one attention. Once certified, Chris encourages people to come back for interview help and extra studying to make sure you're prepared for a career as an Aircraft Dispatcher.
If you're already certified, they also offer 2 week refresher courses! I encourage anyone around the country to fly out and take the course here. They even offer deals with the hotels in the area for that reason.
Invest in yourself and sign up! You won't regret it."
ADTC Refresher Student
"This is the absolute best place to become a dispatcher. Notice how I didn't say get your certificate, at other places you can get you your certificate, but Chris & the ADTC Team builds dispatchers. I am living proof.
I live in California and I choose ADTC because I wanted to become a dispatcher. Chris & Team offer not only the education to successfully pass the Dispatch exam, but the true benefit is all the extras that he offers for free. He gives of his extra time, beyond class to help you be successful.
Chris will challenge you, frustrate you and work you. But thru all it he supports you, motivates you and will be your biggest cheerleader.
You will being doing yourself a disservice not to check out ADTC."
"I took Chris’ 2 week refresher course to prepare for my airlines dispatcher test. I was 5 years removed from dispatch class and knew if I had any chance to get hired, I needed to be on my A game.
I found the class to be very comprehensive; the smaller classroom size really made it easy for me to get personalized instruction and made it very easy to ask questions on anything I found confusing.
After 2 weeks of training, I found myself walking into the test feeling exceptionally knowledgeable and confident and rightfully so as I was 100% sure on nearly every question. Shortly after I received notice that I would be moving on to the interview process, being a former student, Chris was more than accommodating and even provided me with 1 on 1 interview preparation and mock practice. This practice was invaluable at helping me boost my confidence and gave me an idea of how to best handle the dispatch scenario that I would be faced with.
I ended up being offered the job and can’t wait to start my new job as a dispatcher!
Thank you for everything!"
ADTC Refresher Student
"Chris was instrumental in getting my knowledge and career to the next level. I went through refresher training at ADTC to prepare for an upcoming Dispatch interview at a major carrier and was extended a job offer.
I truly credit the work we did with making me prepared to sit for the interview. I can't recommend Chris and ADTC enough. His knowledge, school facilities and passion are truly unparalleled."
ADTC Refresher Student
"I came into this class with zero aviation background. I came from a super boring, very routine accounting job and I needed something to give me a little purpose. I looked into ADTC and they seemed to have a good confidence on getting me in and being successful. Little did I know then that my expectations would be beyond exceeded. I passed my written exam and my oral practical with flying colors and developed a passion for airplanes and the world of aviation.
I got a job one month after graduating and I'm super excited to begin a new life as a dispatcher. Thanks Chris so much for giving me new direction."
"I cannot say enough great things about ADTC and Chris. He truly cares about seeing his students succeed. He makes the class super interesting. I felt very prepared for both the written and practical test.
Once I received my license, I accepted a job offer within a month. I felt fully prepared for my interview also. Thank you Chris for everything."
"I was nervous to take on this huge learning task. Chris could teach anything. I was amazed at the care he gives to each person. His teaching style worked so well for everyone in class. In addition to him being a great teacher he is also a wonderful person. I am now certified to be a dispatcher.
I also got hired by SkyWest only 3 months after graduating."
"Highley recommend ADTC! I just finished the fall night class and now have my Dispatch Certificate!!
The process to say the least was not easy and requires you to commit yourself fully. At the end of the course I look back now and am glad that I had chosen to attend ADTC. Before I finished the class I had already secured two interviews for a dispatcher position.
When Chris says that you are his “baby” it’s true!! He truly does care that you not only succeed and pass the course but also that you secure a job. At the end of the day that is what we are all trying to do.
If and when you decide to attend ADTC, listen to what Chris has to say cause he knows what he is talking about. He will push you and push you but it is for a reason. After going through the oral exam I understand why."
"Class was great due to a knowledgeable and funny instructor. I just received an offer letter and look forward to starting my career in aviation! Thanks Chris!"
"A beginning is the time for taking the most care that the balance between time and effort are correct. The time I spent in the dispatcher course at ADTC, combined with the effort that Chris and John put into each class, gave me the opportunity to start a new career with confidence.
There is so much more to dispatching school than just passing a test. You will want someone who is passionate and dedicated. You will want someone who understands the industry. You will want a teacher who knows more than anyone would ever want to know about dispatching and aviation. Those people are here.
As I write this review I am in the middle of training for an airline in the Midwest. I never thought I would be doing this. ADTC made it happen."
"Chris and John did an amazing job teaching me! I learned so much during the five weeks and they gave me everything I needed to succeed!
Whether you have aviation experience or none at all, ADTC provides the necessary skills for the written exam, practical exam, and job interviews.
After graduating the course, I managed to get 2 job offers! ADTC is worth every penny!!"

"I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. I am so glad I chose ADTC! Chris was a fantastic instructor! The class was very informative with a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Going into the written exam during week 3 and practical exam during week 5 (FAA examiner), I was incredibly well-prepared, and breezed through the tests. I have heard that the dispatch tests were incredibly difficult, but honestly, it did not feel that way. Studying is an absolute necessity, but we were able to ask questions and review every topic for as long as we needed to feel comfortable with the material.
I looked at (literally) every single FAA-approved dispatch school in the country (I got a list from the FAA). I narrowed it down to my top 3 or 4 based on class dates, pricing, recommendations, etc. After speaking with Chris, I knew it was the right choice. While ADTC is a newer school, Chris is an experienced and knowledgeable instructor with the passion for teaching. I have never enjoyed sitting in a classroom all day for anything, until now. I learned a lot, and had fun doing it!
I highly recommend ADTC to anyone considering a career in Aircraft Dispatching!!"
"If being a dispatcher for an airline is your goal, this is THE school you need to attend. Chris will guide you and help you to not just get your Dispatch license, but also make sure you go home with comprehensive knowledge of what aircraft dispatching is all about so you're prepared to land your dream job.
He has created a unique curriculum, that includes one-on-one interview prep, dedicated to prepare you for the interview process. Chris helped me every step of the way, even giving me assistance on reconstructing my resume. With his help and guidance I got three interviews and accepted a job offer within 10 days after I finished the program.
Trust me when I say that Chris will make sure you understand each and every little detail of dispatching and work tirelessly alongside you until the knowledge becomes intrinsic. Students in this program are given so much care and attention to a point that even the lighting in the class room is set to improve student performance (I know!).
Additionally, he fills the class with a fun learning environment! Be READY for a very interactive class with lots of learning. I realized how effective and important his classes are after I got hired because the final day of the course is dedicated to teaching airline oriented rules that they use which totally put me ahead of all the new hires in my company. SO, if you want to be an airline dispatcher and get professional-grade help, go to Chris!"
ADTC Refresher Student
"I am so incredibly thankful to have attended ADTC. Chris will be so much more than your five week instructor. He cares about each student’s success, and truly goes above and beyond to get each student through class, through interviews, and into highly sought after careers.
I am so excited to start dispatching but will honestly miss going back for review classes (and donuts). You do not want to miss out on this incredible opportunity."
"The smaller class size made training at ADTC feel very personal and Chris was able to adjust how he explained things to make sure each person understood.
I really believe I am a successful Dispatcher today because I decided to go with ADTC for my training compared to another school in the DFW metroplex area.
I also believe I got an offer with my airline on my first attempt because of the job prep that ADTC offers that other schools do not. I knew what to say to leave a lasting impression on the airline when I walked out of the interview.
Thank you Chris"
"My experience attending ADTC was great. Having a night class option which enabled me to work and attend class at the same time was ideal for me.
Not only does Chris more than adequately prepare you to pass the ADX written exam, as well as the FAA Oral exam, he also provides exceptional interview preparation for the specific job you are applying for outside of normal class dates and times and is always a phone call/text away if you need anything more to help you prepare. You will go into any exam or interview and will feel prepared.
Even after earning my FAA Dispatcher Certificate in the fall of 2019, I was a regular at all the additional sessions that ADTC offered in the fall of 2021 to help me prepare for the interview process. The open door policy for all graduates cannot be understated.
The focus of ADTC is not only to see you earn your certificate but to also GET THE JOB! I would recommend ADTC to anyone who is serious about becoming a dispatcher.
Oh yea, he also feeds you donuts, which is cool too."
"Chris is an amazing teacher, by far one of the best instructors I have ever had. This is more than a course you become part of the ADTC family.
He does an amazing job of not only preparing you for your license but for the job. I would highly recommend you take his course!!!"
"When I finally decided to get my Dispatch license I was referred to ADTC by multiple coworkers! I am so glad I listened to them!
Chris and John were so helpful every step of the way! They made learning fun and made the complicated things easily understandable!
Their doors are always open even after graduation and really prepared me for every step of the interview process for Southwest Airlines!
They don’t want to take your money and kick you out the door. They want you to get the job, reach your goal and that exactly what I did! Thank you so much Chris and John! If anyone is thinking about getting their dispatch license, don’t look at any school except ADTC!"
"For anyone considering if they should choose ADTC to get there dispatch license I would say without a doubt this is the school you should attend.
Chris is one of the best instructors! When you get him as an instructor you don’t just get him through the course, you have him until you accomplish your goal.
I was a recent graduate in April 2019 and he has taken the time out even after the course to sit with me and help me prepare for my HR and technical interview.
A lot of thanks to Chris, John and a lot of studying I just received an offer to become a dispatcher at Southwest Airlines! I appreciate you both so much thank you for sticking it out with me!"
"Chris is a phenomenal instructor who truly loves what he does; this passion is very clearly manifested in the way he teaches, and in the amount of time he spends making sure each student has a thorough understanding of the subject material.
I was hired by a local Jet Charter within a month of graduating this course, and this is due to Chris' consistent guidance. If you're looking to break into the Aviation Industry as an Aircraft Dispatcher, ADTC is the way to go!"
"This class was one of the most challenging things I have ever done! But Chris makes it fun and he cares so much for his students and wants you to succeed even after you have your certificate! He gets a 10 from me!
Also Chris gave me the confidence to interview and ask for more money on a job offer before I even graduated!! And yes I did get the job!"
"I would recommend ADTC to anyone pursuing a career as an aircraft dispatcher. Chris is a top notch instructor and truly cares about every student. The program is structured well and is very rewarding. Chris knows when you're ready for your exams. I had no problem passing any exam.
I had a job offer within 2 weeks of completing the program. If anyone has any questions feel free to message me to get a student's prospective.
"I had an awesome experience with ADTC and Chris and could not recommend the school more! The class was very involved and really tested my ability to learn and retain new content, but also was a blast. Chris made even dull weather seem fun and I was well prepared for the tests and interviews. Prior to attending ADTC, I had no experience in the aviation industry now I'm moving forward in a new exciting career. Thanks Chris!!!"
I’m so thankful for Chris and John, their focused and personal way of teaching was key for my success. I can’t thank them enough.
If your looking for a school that isn’t focused on getting you in and out this is the one for you. Their success rate is something you can see means something to them with how they will go the extra mile to assist every student.
It went further than the lessons I paid for. The extra refresher classes that were free of charge helped me so much. The words “above and beyond” don’t go far enough.
"I wish I could give more than 5 stars for ADTC! The brand Chris has made for this school speaks for itself. He puts the student first and his number one priority outside of you getting your certificate is you LANDING that dispatch job you just went to school for!
I graduated from the June-July 2019 class and was an internal applicant for Southwest Airlines when they opened a week after I got my certificate and ADTC was right there when I had questions or needed follow ups to keep everything fresh. I landed my dream job a month later!!!
This school is everything I could have asked for and more. If you are reading this then read no further and call up Chris and setup a time to check out his facility and really see what he is all about. You wont regret it!!"
"I highly recommend ADTC! I attended the Nov./Dec. 2019 five-week course. While I did come into this course with a good bit of aviation background (having taken four years of aviation classes in college), this class still taught me more than I ever knew about dispatch.
Chris and John are both great instructors who are personable, highly passionate, and very knowledgeable about what they teach. Their teaching style is unique and I honestly feel like I actually "learned" a lot from this course than compared to any class I ever took in college. They both do a great job of ensuring that you aren't just showing up to class, but actually understanding and retaining the material you need to know to be a dispatcher.
While they do want you to pass, they also truly care more about you actually landing a job as well, which is what really sets this school apart from many of the others. They also both know when you are ready to pass all your exams.
I passed both the FAA Written and Oral/Practical with ease. I must say, the small class size helped a lot and don't pass up the optional Saturday review days! I did not have much luck finding any jobs in the major field I graduated college with, but I was offered a dream job at a regional airline roughly a month after graduating from ADTC.
After searching around for other dispatch schools, I was set immediately on ADTC and I am so glad I made this decision! Thanks Chris and John for a great (and challenging) five weeks and the ability to start my dream career of working for the airlines as a dispatcher!"
