Competency Assurance™

To align our courses with Competency-based Training and Assessment (CBTA) standards we have our Competency Assurance™ to provide you with complete peace of mind and support during your training. APS MCC courses also conclude with a skills test and we are committed to you achieving the required competencies:

  1. If we decide that additional training is required to enable you to achieve the competencies, additional training will be provided at NO ADDITIONAL COST. This enables you to focus completely upon your training and not worry about finding additional funds.

  2. We do recognise that occasionally the APS MCC skills test standard may be beyond reach despite additional training. In these circumstances we take a fair and ethical position:

    • If after receiving additional training, you are unable to reach the APS MCC skills test competence, you will still receive an MCC Completion Certificate and a partial refund of your APS MCC fee.

    • In the unlikely event that our Head of Training ceases your training early and you are unable to receive an MCC Completion Certificate, you will receive a refund of your APS MCC fee, less a small administrative deductible.

This unique Competency Assurance™ from VA offers even greater comfort to airlines and trainees alike that our APS MCC graduates really are AirlineReady® for entry into aircraft type rating training and subsequent airline employment.
