Training is a small but important service in the Jeppesen Operations Control product suite, designed to better enable our customers to get the most from our products and services.
Hiring Managers: Jeppesen Airline Dispatcher training will not only provide high quality staff training, but bring real value and benefit to your operations. For group enrollments, Jeppesen will include discounted on-the-job focused training on customer specific flight planning formats, airport analysis formats, tailored charting, and other dispatch related tools, policies, and exemptions. Our goal is to enable operators to get most out of your initial employee training programs by providing applicants with the highest standards in fundamentals training and how to apply that knowledge on the job.
Dispatchers: Obtain the FAA / NAA Aircraft Dispatcher License and new or refined career opportunities as a dispatcher / flight operations officer. In addition to flight dispatch, applicants will learn fundamentals critical to other careers, such as corporate aircraft operations, military aircraft operations, humanitarian aircraft operations, regulatory agencies, or vendors which supply countless products and services to global aircraft operations (flight planning software, charting, ramp services, aircraft manufacturers, and more).
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.
Operations Management: The ATP "body of knowledge" plus flight planning and practical dispatching is applicable to many operational management responsibilities. This course provides the technical background along with an appreciation for how to maximize the efficiency of or transport category operations.
