Some of us aren't afraid to take to the skies to pilot commercial and private planes. But then there are others of us who prefer to have two feet planted firmly on the ground. You still have the opportunity to work in the aviation field as an Air Traffic Controller. The United States has over 15,000 airports and more than 13 million annual flights at just its 35 busiest airports, requiring a significant number of Air Traffic Controllers.

In Air Traffic Control,  you will practice air navigation skills in top-of-the-line flight simulators. Train and hone your knowledge in meteorology, radar and non-radar operations, as well as visual tower operations. Study and practice procedures, charts, aircraft performance and facilities, airspace, aircraft dispatch and more. Gain the knowledge needed to take the FAA pre-employment examination so you can start your career as an Air Traffic Controller.


A separate application is required for the Air Traffic Controller program. The application can be found above the program requirements page. Please read and complete all requirements for the Air Traffic Controller program before enrolling.
