Yes, Vaughn College in NYC. All online, you just have to go 40 hours(not credit hours) at the end for a review so they know that you actually learned everything. If you pass the review they'll ad you to their referral list.

Do you happen to know if it's a 2 or 4 year school? I was looking into Mt San Antonia College out here in CA but the commute is kind of tough from where I am.

ummm not according to their website :

In response to the needs of our non-traditional students, a number of the required 10 courses in the fast-track 30-credit program are offered online, though students will not be able to complete the entire program without attending courses in person. Courses are generally offered both days and evenings, and Saturday courses are planned in the near future. Vaughn College's affordable tuition (one of the lowest private college tuition rates in the Nation), combined with generous financial aid packages and academic scholarships for students achieving a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher make this program an attractive, as well as affordable option for students seeking a career change.

That's where I have to make the decision. I have my 4 year degree but I am 27 years old. The school we have out here in CA is $26 a unit. $15,000 for a 1 year course for a job I may not get seems a bit much to me.

I'm having quite the dilemma.

Now I guess the question is, if I do end up spending 15k for Vaughn and don't become a controller, what can I do with the CTI education? I already have a Pilot's certificate.

Also, are there any good government programs that will help financially for a schol like Vaughn?

What jobs does that open doors for? I have a degree and job history in marketing and am working on my instrument rating as far as being a pilot.

Someone gave a suggestion recently to consider getting something in dispatch if they offer it. That's a pretty good idea; airlines always need dispatchers and it's a similar field, so you'd have the bonus of learning something roughly in the same ballpark.

I am certain any of the services would love to have you and the max entry age is higher than the FAA.

Airline/airport management is run by airlines/airports. Dispatch is run by each individual airline.
