REAL EXAMINATIONS, REAL INTERVIEWS
As part of the initial rater training, you will see how language exams are conducted, you'll receive an introduction to the testing software in use and you'll see how a target-aimed language test interview looks like.
At the end of the training course you'll perform your first language exam, under the supervision of an experienced examiner.
YOUR FIRST RATING
The langauge test doesn't only consist of testing - assigning the rating is no less important. You'll do your first rating under the supervision of an experienced examiner.
Recurrent Rater Training
Allows you to refresh your knowledge of the ICAO rating scale, the rating process, current changes in aviation legislation and many more items.
Above all, the recurrent rater training serves as an ongoing standardization training. You will meet other raters to discuss voice samples of all kinds of language tests, especially borderline cases.
