Ok I am currently working on my undergraduate B.S. degree, however I think that I want to pursue a career in ATC. So I know that one way to get into ATC is to complete an ATC program(which is not offered at my current university) or I could just complete my B.S. degree and then apply to become an ATC off the street. My question is, is it harder to get a job if you have not completed the ATC program? If I can do well on the exam, will I still have a hard time getting a position because I have not gone to an ATC program?
I have the option of completing my B.S. degree at my current school then going to a different school that offers an ATC 2 year program and then try for a job in ATC, but I don't want to waste time and money if I don't need to go to that second school. I really don't want to leave my current school without receiving my degree after putting time and money into it. I guess I am just looking for some advice on whether an ATC program at a different college is actually worth it. Thanks
