Hello. I'm writing because I couldn't find information pertinent to my situation. I took four of the five ATC courses at Embry-Riddle but I did not stay to take the last one because it would have delayed my graduation. I already took the standardized multiple-choice ATC exam and scored very high. A few years have passed, and I would like to work as an air traffic controller. How can I get recommended to the FAA academy with my Collegiate Training Initiative unfinished?
I have done some research and the schools I have asked say I must graduate from them with their degree to be able to finish the CTI and get into the academy. I have a problem with that because I already have a bachelor's, I need neither an associate's degree nor a master's, nor do I want to take and pay for ten+ college courses just to take the last ATC class and get recommended to the academy. I hope that with your help, dear readers, I will find a way into the ATC academy without having to get an entire extra college degree!
