What is the bespoke course guideline?

Below is an outline of the standard ICARUS Theory Course syllabus; it shows the lessons you will undertake in order to learn the required information to be a competent and safe commercial operator. The theory course culminates with a multiple choice examination of 50 questions. The pass mark for the exam is 80% – but do not be phased by this! We will ensure that you have the required knowledge to pass the exam by the time you come to sit it.

We have the capacity and instructors to discuss bespoke training specifically for you. We can come to your office or you can use one of our training bases across the country. 

Any specific aspects of our training can be adapted and changed this is our standard guideline.
