Age Requirement

Per FAA regulations, the minimum age to be issued an aircraft dispatcher certificate is 23 year old. However, those not younger than 21 years of age may enroll in the Aircraft Dispatcher Training Program and take the FAA aircraft dispatcher practical exam. Upon successful completion of both, the applicant will be issued the aircraft dispatcher certificate after his or her 23rd birthday.

Program Deposit

To schedule your 200 Hour Initial Aircraft Dispatcher Training Course, first complete a Student Visa Application Form and make a $1,600 USD payment as follows:

  • $600 USD non-refundable application fee.
  • $1000 USD first payment to reserve your class date. This payment applies to the course price.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

ATP will retain the $600 non-refundable application fee. In addition, ATP will retain the $1000 first payment for any program cancellation (unless cancellation is due to U.S Embassy denial of the M-1 visa).
