EASA ATPL EXAMS

Hello everybody,

Just wondering,back in 2012 i have finished a UK approved ATPL course and got a course completion certificate.
Due to some personal circumstances,i have not passed any EASA exam yet.
Meanwhile i got an ICAO ATPL theory.
My Question is :
1-can i use that UK ATPL course to sign in for exams again(subject to some personal refresh and preparation),as per EASA requirement.
2-If yes,in which EASA countries can this be done,or it is only valid for UK?

Thank you.

I note you say you havenít passed any exams. Did you sit any of them but fail?

Hi,

No fail at all,i just passed the ICAO ATPL theory indeed in between 2012-2013 and succeeded with a success rate of 12persons succeeded/ 132 persons subscribed.
I have not passed any EASA exam yet.

Cheers.

Well, the deal is that from the time you sit the first exam you have 18 months and 6 sittings to pass everything. Did your ATO at the time register you on the CAA exam booking system?

I have to say, it is really weird to have completed all the training and not taken any exams. Every ATO that I am aware of does blocks of training followed by taking several subjects.

So you don’t need a course completion certificate in order to be able to take exams, what you do need is for your ATO to have authorised you to the CAA to take them.

I suggest you go back to your original ATO and enquire as to the status of your exam authorisation. I have to say, the passing of an ICAO ATPL exams only, after an 8 year window, I would consider totally irrelevant. Likewise how many people were on that course and how many passed is also totally irrelevant. I wouldn’t even waste your time putting that information forwards. The only salient factor would be if you also did the flying training and got a professional licence issued and used it; in this case you might reach the point of being able to self certify to sit the EASA exams but it doesn’t sound like this is the case.

if your enquiry came into my in tray, bearing in mind the 8 years (and also syllabus and exam system changes) I would require you to repeat the course.

Talk to your original ATO.

Thank ypu for all the explanation
It is actually been 06 years since finished the ICAO ATPL exams,and they are 100% based on the EASA syllabus.
But more complicated and difficult, as there was no Question bank for us,and you have to know all the material for every single subject.
Questions were made by CAA ground instructors on every exam session...
Further more,i have not passed any EASA exam because my local Authority asked to redo all the exams again,even if with EASA exams in pocket....


cheers

TBH I don’t really understand what you are saying.

You must complete an approved course of training with an EASA ATO in order to sit the EASA exams. (Unless you can self certify as an experienced non EASA multi pilot aircraft pilot; you can search for those requirements on these forums).

What else you may have done Ground school wise is irrelevant.

Have you ever studies at an EASA ATO? If so, talk to them about this.

If not you are effectively starting from scratch unfortunately.
