Air Traffic Controller Degree Programs
And AT-CTI Approved Schools
Air traffic controller training and earning a college degree go hand-in-hand at these FAA-approved schools. The FAA has a partnership program with select colleges and universities called the Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI). Some approved schools offer both Associate and Bachelor degrees in aviation which prepare graduates for entry-level job interviews for FAA air traffic control specialist positions. If you're thinking about becoming an air traffic controller, it's important to realize this is a competitive, high-paying, and high stress career, and you'll need an impressive resume to get hired. Most often, that resume will need to include a college degree. Why not "stack the deck" in your favor by earning a college degree that could apply directly to your career? There's also another advantage to earning a degree from AT-CTI approved colleges... doing so allows you to bypass the first five weeks of training at the FAA's Oklahoma City ATC training program (the FAA calls this five week course the Air Traffic Basics Course). You've probably got more questions so why not ask the experts? Contact the schools below for the information you need to make a decision about attending an FAA AT-CTI program.
