I don’t work in aviation yet, but I am training for my PPL then I will continue onto my commercial and multi engine license for the airline world

ATC - basically flight dispatcher

They are not aircraft dispatchers that’s two extremely far separate things.

A lot of pilots get their dispatcher cert specially after they pass their ATP. It’s a good cert if you ever lose your medical and can’t ever fly again

Exactly. I’m UK you need Class 3 medical for ATC if I remember correctly

Private pilot and Airline Ground Staff. Could only pick answer tho

I’m not in the industry, but I can tell you that ATC and dispatch are very different things. A dispatcher (the way I understand it from talking to one) at an airline works with the captains, providing crucial flight information (fuel, load, etc.) and then following the flight and providing any info the pilots might need. ATC is in charge of controlling airspace.
