I did the type in pan am with self study before hand and i can tell you that the traning is exellent. As usually there is always good instructor and bad ones. As the course progressed we changed 4 ground instructors but that does not mater because you are supposed to have study before hand. And anyway everything is done through a CBT.
Then comes the sim. Usualy the sim instructor is the same unless something happend. The sim itself is good and the instructor that we had was good as well.
I had a few problems understanding the way the Bus worked but after 2 session i got it and everithing whent fine thereafter.

You have to know something about typeratings. You will never learn everithing you need on the type. The type help you get a job. Once you get the job then then you strart understanding everything and everything fits together.
