In order to broaden the employment opportunities in the aviation industry for graduates and to develop a more educated work force in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Collegiate Training Initiative (CTI) program was implemented in October 1997. Thls program was tested for over five years in post-secondary educational institutes. The CTI program focuses on the graduate having a broad-based knowledge of the air traffic management system, FAA, aviation industry, and principal topics covered in many existing aviation degree programs (FAA, 1997). Graduates of the program are required to attend the FAA Academy to successfully complete the skills and equipment training.
