Course duration:

Are you working, studying or otherwise busy? We have a solutiuon for you. The course is in the form of self-study followed by consultations in the form of face-to-face or online consultations.

Out of a total of 650 hours, 154 hours are consultations with CATC instructors. So you complete an average of 16-20 hours of consultation per month. We try to schedule consultations at CATC mainly over the weekend or in the afternoon so as to allow students with time constraints to study.

Already during the course, CATC will issue a partial certificate of successful completion of completed subjects upon your request. You can start taking exams at the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA/ÚCL) already during the course.
