FAA Academy

FAA Academy Mission, vision and valuesThe Federal Aviation Administration Academy is applying for initial accreditation with the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education. Persons wishing to make comments should either write to the Executive Director of the Commission, Council on Occupational Education, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 300, Suite 325, Atlanta, Georgia 30350, or submit their comments through the Council’s website. Persons making comments have provided their names and mailing addresses.



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 more than 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 and has been continually accredited by meeting or exceeding rigorous accreditation standards since then. AdvancED has now replaced NCA. The Academy is also pursuing an additional accreditation with the Council on Occupational Education (COE).
