The FAA Academy provides technical and managerial training and development for our workforce and the aviation community. Since courses have different admissions criteria, prospective participants are admitted on a course-by-course basis. Certain courses may not be open to the general public, but many courses are available to other government agencies, industry, and international civil aviation authorities.
Services we provide:
- develop and conduct training courses,
- plan, maintain and manage FAA's distance learning systems, and
- provide training program management and consultation services.
In addition to training FAA and non-FAA personnel in the U.S., the Academy has trained international participants from 172 countries. Many of the world's leaders in civil aviation are alumni of the FAA Academy. The continued educational and professional interactions have led to mutual understanding and respect.
The FAA Academy received accreditation from the North Central Association (NCA) of Colleges and Schools on March 19, 1991. Each year since, the Academy has been found to meet or exceed NCA's rigorous accreditation standards. The Academy has the honor of being the first federal non-military training organization accredited by NCA.
