The units cover all relevant competencies, knowledge and skills and correlate with requirements for the CASA Instrument Rating. See training.gov.au for detailed information on the qualification and units.

The course is a blend of theoretical, practical and self-directed learning; together with integrated assessment. The timetable is carefully designed to assist students to progress through the learning and assessment requirements in an achievable and meaningful way.

Theory training is provided in face-to-face classes and supported with self-directed learning through the use of self-paced study guides, individual/small-group mentoring and coaching, flight briefings and multimedia resources. We recommend students allow for approximately 100 hours of self-directed learning.

Assessment throughout the course is undertaken through:

  • various observations, competency checks and quizzes
  • the CASA Instrument Rating Exam (IREX) on completion of the theory training
  • flight tests to attain the MEACR and the Instrument Rating on completion of the flight training requirements.
