Welcome to Jeppesen's FAA / NAA Dispatcher Certificate Training (FOM-2)
The primary objective of the Jeppesen Aircraft Dispatcher Training program is to prepare applicants to take the comprehensive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), or relevant National Aviation Administration (NAA), written, oral, and practical exams leading to issuance of the Aircraft Dispatcher license.
Please note that FAA Licensing is only available by attending class in the United States. Course attendance in non-US countries will result in licenses issued by the relevant NAA.
Jeppesen is now able to assist with both the business (B-1) and student (M-1) visa acquisition process, for participation in Jeppesen's FAA dispatcher certification program in the United States. Jeppesen training students are able to gain the essential Form I-20 from Jeppesen as the initial step of gaining a category M-1 student visa for entry into the U.S.
VA / GI Bill Benefit Assistance
Jeppesen is prepared to guide veterans with a smooth transition to a civilian career in the airline industry. The Jeppesen FAA Dispatcher Certification Course is approved by the Colorado State Approving Agency for the training of Veterans and eligible dependents. Individuals who served on active duty may receive funding to cover tuition and possible housing expenses associated with attending the Jeppesen FAA Dispatcher Certification course.
You may be eligible for tuition assistance through VA benefits including Post 911 Gi Bill, Montgomery Gi Bill, and other GI Bill benefits if you are a veteran, veteran's dependent, a surviving spouse, child or parent of a deceased veteran, an active duty military service member, or a member of the Reserve or National Guard. Please note that all eligibility questions must be first addressed with the VA and not Jeppesen.
Students will learn about responsibilities and the skills necessary to function as an efficient part of any airline operation control center (AOC). Students will study various sophisticated automation systems (flight planning, flight following, weather analysis, etc), and gain exposure to additional other tools which may become helpful in a wide range of airline careers (electronic flight bag, international trip planning, crew planning software, etc).
Upon completion of the program applicants will be proficient in the following subject areas: Meteorology, Aeromedical Factors, Air Traffic Control, Emergency, Security, Communications, Navigation, Deicing and Anti-icing, Charts and Airspace, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Systems, Aircraft Performance, Weight and Balance, International Operations, Regulations, Manual Flight Planning, Practical Dispatching, and Dispatch Resource Management.
FAA courses held in the United States are six (6) weeks in duration. Courses held outside the United States may include a one (1) week FOM-1 course, or bypass exam.
Night classes are also available in Denver, Colorado. Please use the form on this page to receive a detailed course calendar.
Experience Substitution (FOM-2A)
Applicants who have civilian or military experience as a pilot, assistant dispatcher, air traffic controller, meteorologist, operations manager, etc, may all be eligible to receive a reduction in programmed hours and tuition.
Who Should Attend
Dispatchers: Individuals seeking an FAA/NAA Aircraft Dispatcher License and career, or current airline employees who wish to transition to a aircraft dispatcher / flight operations officer position.
Pilots: The FAA/NAA Dispatcher Written exam is very similar to the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) written exam, so pilots can prepare for (or retake) the ATP while increasing their backup career options.
Management & Administration: One can summarize this course as the ATP "body of knowledge" plus flight planning and practical dispatching - which is applicable to many aviation careers. This course is ideal for individuals whose career currently involves airline operations or those who wish to learn more about the technical details associated with air carrier transportation.
Aviation Vendors: Individuals seeking careers with aviation vendors who produce products and services for the aviation industry. From aircraft or avionics manufacturing and sales, to operations automation tools, to other products and services - individuals can benefit from this education in technical air transport requirements and efficiencies.
