The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is getting tough and clamping down on those who are authorised to carry out external competency tests and examinations, demanding that students who sit these exams are rigorously marked up to a specific standard (75%), and they meet new higher rated standards.

Students are also reminded this NQE cannot be used as a commercial endorsement of their professional competency in advertising. Click on the information notice link below.
