Florida Institute of Technology and AeroStar Training Services LLC now offer this unique opportunity to undergraduate flight students, graduate students and alumni of Florida Tech. Through Florida Tech, students from other colleges and universities may take type rating courses for transfer credit as well.
The three courses included in the program are:
- Simulator Observation
- Jet Transition
- Type Rating Training Course (students may choose to earn their type rating in either the Boeing 737 or the Airbus 320)
Upon successful completion, students will have earned a type rating certification and up to six hours of college credit toward graduation in their degree program. Successful completion of the simulator observation course earns one credit hour. The jet transition course earns two credit hours. Either type rating training course (A320 or B737) earns three credit hours.
Since January 2012, three Florida Tech students have completed the simulator observation course, six have completed jet transition and four are scheduled to start type rating training in the A320 program in Spring 2012.
If you’re currently enrolled at another university and would like to participate, please ask for details and appropriate forms for transfer credit at your university registrar’s office.
We look forward to seeing you in the program!
