Faster Reporting

ABSEC has designed and implemented a real time reporting system that communicates directly with the ATC for faster completion submissions.

Standard reporting procedures used by our competitors are manual and slow, meaning that your completed course results may be reported up to a week after completion.  ABSEC students get their permanent state certifications up to two weeks earlier than others.

“My entire team was able to get their certification in two hours!”


I recently opened a new restaurant/bar and needed certifications for all of my employees.  We grabbed a pizza and hopped on our cellphones.  We finished up in no time and were ready to open for business!
