At NBAA2010, we will announce the recipients of the scholarships.” <br />Universal’s FAA Dispatcher Course is broken into two sections. Students complete the first section of their coursework online from their home base over a four-month period. The second section is completed in person during a two-week period at Universal’s training facility in Houston. The training in Houston covers the practical portion of the course, and includes time dedicated for students to take the actual FAA exams.<br />Universal recommends that students complete the on-site portion of the course as quickly as possible following the completion of the online course, and no longer than two to three months after completion of the online module. The scholarship covers the full cost of tuition, but does not include lodging, meals or exam fees.<br />WCA members serve as scholarship committee members to review and decide scholarship winners for the WCA Career Scholarship and other awards offered through WCA.<br />For more information on the course, visit http://www.universalweather.com/faatraining.<br /># # #<br />About WCA<br />Women in Corporate Aviation (WCA) will be the premier association for men and women in corporate and business aviation.
