Education Opportunities

We all know that knowledge is power, and advanced education is a key aspect to career advancement. We are pleased to announce that ALPA and the ARW MEC are partnering with Thomas Edison State University in Trenton, New Jersey to provide each of our pilots a timely and cost-effective way to complete your bachelor’s degree. Under this opportunity, TESU will evaluate your past college credits, along with your life experience and aviation training, and use this information to custom-design a meaningful and manageable degree completion program for you. And here’s the best news: since we all already hold ATPs as professional airline pilots, your aviation flight area of study is almost complete, except for some aviation electives which can be completed by other ratings (CFI, CFII, and/or being a Part 121 Captain) or through a few aviation management courses.

Although the MEC is planning to incorporate TESU education counseling services as a part of our job interview prep series set to resume this summer, we wanted to provide you with the information for this opportunity now so you can get started on a path to make yourself the most qualified applicant possible.

Please visit the dedicated landings page for more information:

(NOTE: as this is still a very new program, TESU is finalizing this page so you may get a “not found” error – if so, try it again a bit later.)

Also check out these helpful links on the TESU website:

http://www.tesu.edu/academics/cal/apr.cfm#Aviation

http://www.tesu.edu/degree-completion/Testing.cfm

Look for additional information as we solidify our relationship with TESU – but do not delay getting yourself ready for the next step of your career.  Although holding a college degree is not a hard and fast requirement at many large jet carriers, being a college graduate does set a pilot a part from an applicant who only possesses an Associate’s degree or a high school diploma.

You can download a flyer on TSEU aviation programs; for questions regarding applying and enrollment contact Kelli Parlante-Givas at 609-984-7188 x 2127 or kparlante@tesu.edu.

For questions regarding academics and degree programs, contact Donald Cucuzzella via http://www.tesu.edu/ast/ast-aviation-form.cfm.

We know many of you are extremely interested in knowing more about United’s Career Progression Program and how the CPP will function at ARW. Unfortunately, we were hoping to have discussed CPP topics with the company, but we have yet to enter into a dialogue with them on how the program will be structured for the ARW pilots.

Based on how the CPP is being applied at the other participating FFD carriers, United’s basic qualification standards will still apply to everyone seeking an interview. For pilots who lack a four-year college degree and are not already pursuing getting one, we highly recommend taking a look at the TESU opportunities in order to be competitive during the UAL CPP.

Once the MEC has information on the Air Wisconsin specifics of the CPP, we will pass them on to you.
