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
Not only will you conduct the test, but also assigning a rating will be an important task. You’ll do your first level 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 much more.
Above all, the recurrent rater training serves as an ongoing standardisation training. You will meet other examiners to discuss voice samples of all kinds of language tests, especially borderline cases.
