FAA Academy Achieves COE Accreditation
Vol.8 Issue 7

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Academy applied for and received accreditation with the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE). Accreditation is a status granted to an educational institution or program that has been found to meet or exceed the stated criteria of educational quality and student achievement. Accreditation by COE is viewed as a nationally-honored seal of excellence for occupational education institutions and denotes honesty and integrity.

The FAA Academy provides technical and managerial training and development for the 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.

Types of services the FAA Academy provides:

  • develop and conduct training courses
  • plan, maintain and manage FAA’s distance learning systems
  • 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 already earned 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 that time. The NCA accreditation has since been replaced by AdvancED.
