What's involved in the above conversion? Is it a matter of getting the multi engine rating and then repeating the whole IR test in a multi engine a/c? If so, is there then extra training in MEIR ops or is it just a reduced format effectively for the second IR test (or a repeat of the whole test to include asymmetric ops)? Thanks.

Today's lesson is taken from the book of bullshit (which baffles brains), LAS 2008, chapter E, verse 1.2:
SE IR(A) to ME IR(A)*
5 hours instrument time under instruction in ME aeroplanes, which may include (b);
3 hours in FNPT II or Flight Simulator if approved by CAA;
Pass a ME IR(A) Skill Test with a UK CAA Staff Flight Examiner.
* The holder of a SE IR(A) wishing to upgrade to ME IR(A)
hold a multi-engine type/class rating, or have at least completed an approved course of training for the ME class rating
or:10 hours in a FNPT II or flight simulator.
Thanks be to our Lord that is Adonis. But not for much longer, one hopes.
