The FAA established the Technical Operations Collegiate Training Partnership (TO-CTP) Program – originally known as Technical Operations Collegiate Training Initiative (TO-CTI) – in 1990. TO-CTP is designed to establish partnerships with higher education institutions for the purpose of recruiting students for potential employment, as well as provide the opportunity for FAA non-technical employees to enter the FAA technical workforce. Curricula have been identified at these TO-CTP Institutions that support positions as Electronics Technicians and Airway Transportation Systems Specialists.
There are three distinct special authorities associated with the program.
There are 43 FAA TO-CTP partner institutions. There are 31 institutions that offer the TO-CTP curriculum in their associate degree programs, eight in their bachelor degree programs, and four in both degree programs.
After review by the FAA it is determined that these degrees meet or exceed our entry level educational requirements for Electronic/Electrical competencies identified for the Technical Operations Workforce. The five main competencies reviewed are:
Provided you meet all of the requirements above and have been selected and received a firm offer letter from the Federal Aviation Administration you will report to your new facility to begin your new career.
