Pre-Flight Training

Pre-Flight Training is NWFSC’s online, on-demand new student orientation. Learn the basics of RaiderNet, how to register and more in this short video that you can view as many times as you would like and from the convenience of your home, office, beach retreat – anywhere! This is required viewing for all new students and part one of a two-part process that also includes Flight Plan Instruction (new student advising). You may read more about Pre-Flight Training by visiting your personal NWFSC website and clicking on the “New Raiders!” tab.

Flight Plan Instruction

This LIVE group advising session is offered online via Zoom for your convenience every Tuesday and Friday during the weeks leading up to the start of classes for each new semester. Participants will learn more about RaiderNet, how to search and register for classes, how to view their schedule, pay tuition and more! Because FPI is hosted live by a Student Success Navigator, you may ask questions and vote in polls to learn more about other topics. To view available dates and register, please click one of the links below.

Attending a Flight Plan Instruction session and viewing the Pre-Flight Training video will satisfy the new student advising requirement.
