The CTI program establishes an official partnership between the FAA and select aviation education programs. Green River recommends its students to the FAA for hire as air traffic controllers, granting students an advantage in the extremely competitive hiring process. Successful program completion and selection by the FAA can potentially feed directly into air traffic controller training at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma.
