The current rules of the M.A.C.I. are such that all modellers must have passed their A Cert in order to be able to fly unaccompanied. The S.R.F.C. have adopted the following training policy to get our new members up to the A Cert qualification as soon as is practical.
Each new should download a training log (see link below), which will have the A Cert manoeuvres on it. The pupil will perform these manoeuvres during the course of his training and the Instructor will mark up the pupil's score at the end of each day or session so that there is a record of the progress of each pupil and their progress can be monitored.
These scores will range from 1 (poor) to 5 (very good). When a pupil starts getting 4's and 5's he will be required to take the test. The scoring will also help the pupil by highlighting what their weak and strong subjects are and show their progress as well.
Each training log will have space for 10 sessions to be recorded and pupils will be required to take the A Cert test after 2 Training cards have been completed or earlier at the discretion of the the training officer.
The Training log will be held by the pupil and should be presented at each training session.
