TRI or SFI?

Good morning,
I am thinking to upgrade myself (and to have a sort of insurance in case of med issues in the future) and get a TRI certificate. Currently flying the 747 and holding an FI as well, according to part FCL.930 I can skip the teaching and learning part.

on point c mentions that a SFI holder has all of the requirements covered so I was thinking if is more convenient in terms of money to do the SFI first then to apply for the TRI?

Any suggestions about that, and where is good/convenient in EASA land to do it?

thank you

The course content for SFI and TRI is the same, so I’m not sure what benefit there would be not to go straight to TRI?

I was thinking about costs savings and quicker and maybe easier to organize because of the 747 type. Any idea where? Thank you

Sorry, no help at all on location. I don’t know which ATO would be able to offer a 747 course.

Good luck

Dont do an SFI or TRI on the 747 it is a dying type. Also if you dont know an ATO that does the course, how will you know where to get work? But never the less here is the uk list of ATOs if there is one, maybe Cardiff? It's in here Standards Document 31: Organisations Conducting Approved Courses of Flight and Ground Training
