There are several schools you can find on line. They are specialized for FAA , 911 (Emergency Response) and Locomotive. If you are interested in any of these specific fields I would go to companies of interest and contact a human resources person for further information. Most states have a 911 certification program. BNSF Railways lists a train dispatch certification program on their site.

If you are interested in LTL or automobile transportation dispatch training I wish you luck. That is more of a on the job experience. Your best bet is to either know someone who can make a referral to a specific company. It is who you know ....

Another path is to find a position with a company you want to work for and wait for an internal posting. That is how I got my first dispatching position in the waste services industry.

I am a dispatcher in the trucking industry. I got all my education by on the job training. To get into that type dispatching you almost have to have a working knowledge of trucking and logistics. I have been in trucking for over 30 years and I also grew up in it. Also to be a dispatcher of any kind, you MUST be a people person. Good Luck in your search.

there are onlines schools you can takes classes i myself am currently checking out these options, as i lost my dispatch job in Jan, and having a hard time getting back into trucking.
So far i like this one the best, it's not per say college, but school where you can learn what field you want.
check out Institute of logistical management in www.logisticseducation.edu otherwise the other schools look for transportation/logistics/supply chain those will take you where you want to go. good luck!
