The following information was compiled by the International Federation of Air Line Dispatchers Associations (IFALDA) as a courtesy to the flight dispatcher/flight operations officer community and those desiring information about training in these fields. While this information was current at the time of compilation and the links all worked, IFALDA assumes no responsibility for ensuring the currency of information nor the validity of the links nor the quality of the courses.

IFALDA strongly suggests that those interested in dispatcher training contact the schools and course operators for references and to ensure the course curriculum complies with the Standards in ICAO Annexes 1 and 6 and with ICAO Document 7192 D3-The Flight Operations Officer/Flight Dispatcher Training Manual. While these course operators may prepare an individual for licensing beyond the U.S., they generally do not meet the requirements of 14 CFR Part 65.57b for airman certification in the U.S.

U.S. FAA Dispatcher Airman Certificates must be earned and issued in the United States. (see text box)
