English Language Raters
The ELP consists of two parts: the LISTENING section and the SPEAKING section. The speaking section assesses how effectively candidates can communicate in English and measures the examinee’s ability to respond to different aviation related situations and tasks. The speaking test is recorded and takes 30-40 minutes.
Aerosolutions is currently looking for teachers who are able to rate according to the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) Language Proficiency Scale. If you are not familiar with the ICAO rating scale and the holistic descriptors, you are required to undertake a week of training conducted by Aerosolutions.
