Universal Weather & Aviation FAA-certified Dispatcher Training Scholarship


Hybrid Course (Online, plus eight-day classroom session) The Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. hybrid Aircraft Dispatcher Course is comprised of two elements: a four-month (17 week) self-paced online portion and an eight-day classroom session. This course allows you to complete the majority of the coursework online over a four-month period. Once you complete the online requirements and pass the FAA Knowledge Test, you will spend eight days at our training facility in Houston, Texas, to complete the practical portion of your training. Your FAA Practical Test will be scheduled following the successful completion of the eight-day classroom session. Please plan on being in Houston a few extra days to complete the practical test.
