This course may be combined with the NAA Inspector - EASA Aircrew Licensing Training Course, as the first days of this course cover the same subjects.

Note: Bringing a laptop to the training venue is a must, once part of the training material will be provided electronically - access to a laptop is required for some important elements of the course.
