College Credit for FAA Training

The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for over 500 FAA courses.

Courses that have been evaluated and are eligible for college credit are listed in the ACE National Catalog, provided at the following address:

Note: To search the National Guide, use “FAA” as the key word in the search bar to populate all FAA courses. Using the Filter results: Check marking the “Active” box will show all current active FAA courses that are eligible for credit recommendations.

Academy students may use ACE transfer credit at their college or university of choice. To obtain credit for courses taken at the FAA Academy, students must obtain an ACE Transcript. The ACE Transcript, powered by Credly, includes credit recommendations that learners have earned through workplace training, apprenticeships, examinations, and other alternative education experiences. Learners must have a Credly account to access official transcripts and digital badges.

Upon successful completion of a FAA Academy course, those courses that have received recommended credits from ACE will be linked to a Credly Badge. Students will receive an email notification via their from Credly, where they must accept the “Badge”. Visit the Credly sign-in page to request an official transcript.

  • eLMS is the system of record for all Academy training and the source for Credly data.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ACE credit recommendations are only valid during a specified period from date of evaluation completion, therefore courses completed outside of this eligible period will not be eligible for recommended credits or a Credly Badge. See Dates Offered information within the ACE National Catalog to identify eligible period of credit recommendation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The individual college or university makes the final determination concerning the transferability of educational credits for all courses. The amount of credit granted will depend on an institution's degree requirements and general policy on granting credit for college-level learning gained outside that institution.
