Can FEAST/DART be done twice within 2 years?

I have done the FEAST/DART with NATS and am awaiting my results. If I don't get it, I will be applying for the IAA controller program. On their application form they ask if I've done FEAST in the last 2 years. NATS also say that if you fail you can't reapply for another 2 years. This has me thinking you can only do the tests once every 2 years. Is this right? Or do the IAA just want to know if I've done it before so they can see my results?

IAA SCP Program

do the IAA just want to know if I've done it before so they can see my results?
Who knows, maybe they want to save themselves the hassle/cost of repeating the tests if you have them done already.

Why not just e-mail them and get the clarification you want?
IAA SCP Program.

I know someone who applied and was not successful. He told me that he could not reapply for 2 more years.
Now that was about 4/5 years ago.
Never thought to ask was it the whole process or the aptitude tests.

You cannot take the test twice within 2years means if you fail, you have to wait at least 2years before taking it again.

If you were successful and didnít get accepted by NATS, IAA still could ask for your results from NATS. This doesnít mean necessarily your results would be good enough for IAA so they might ask you to take it again.
