The written assessment will be provided prior to the commencement of the course. This will be marked by an assessor before organising attendance for the practical component of the assessment. If the student is not successful in completing the knowledge component of the course they will be advised to attend the full course. The recognition of prior learning component of this course can only be offered if you have attended a LifeFlight HUET theory component within the last two years. This policy is due to the currency issues created by the lack of being able to utilise the skills and knowledge contained in this course on a regular basis.

Very well organised and presented course by LifeFlight. Phil Head and Jerome Guitton were brilliant instructors and were experts in their field. Thank you Phil for all the extra work and time you put in to assist me in completing my ATPL. LifeFlight Training Academy has friendly, helpful and dedicated people and that is what makes the difference between a good and excellent training organisation.
