The Federal Aviation Administration has partnered with select institutions around the United States to promote aviation for the next generation. AT-CTI graduates are equipped with knowledge and skills to pursue a broader range of employment opportunities around the aviation industry. Graduates are eligible to bypass the Air Traffic Basics Course, which is usually covered during the first five weeks of qualification training at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City. Students must successfully complete all required training at the FAA Academy to continue employment with FAA.
The College of Aeronautics offers an Air Traffic Control (ATC) specialization in conjunction with all of its bachelor’s degree programs. The ATC specialization meets the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) AT-CTI program and is FAA approved.
