This course is designed to familiarize pilots on Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) warning modes.

It should add to your existing knowledge and help increase your general understanding of these subjects. Completion of the videos and quizzes and the issuance of a certificate will demonstrate that you have increased or refreshed your knowledge of core CIFT and EGPWS topics.

The course consists of viewing short videos followed by a short quiz on the following subjects:

  1. Controlled Flight Into Terrain                                                                                    
  2. EGPWS functions                                                                                
  3. EGPWS Excessive rate of descent

Upon completion, a certificate of completion and summary of the topics covered will be issued in your name. You can log in and re-take the course at any time in case a refresher is needed for any reason such as an upcoming job interview or promotion.

Course instructions

You are required to view each video twice before attempting the quiz.  You can only move on to the next video upon successful completion of the accompanying quiz.  The pass mark is 100% – don’t worry, questions are designed to ensure you understood the video content, we are not trying to catch you out!    In case you do not pass the quiz the first time, you can re-watch the video and take the quiz again.   Once its passed, you can move on to the next module.

While watching each video, pay close attention and concentrate on the content.  Do not let any distractions reduce your concentration level.  Quiz questions will be relatively easy to answer if you have paid complete attention but difficult if you have not. 

You can complete this course in sections by logging out when you need a break.  You can continue where you left off by logging in again.   There is no time limit for completion.

Once completed a copy of the certificate will automatically be sent to the email address you used to register.  Alternatively, you can download a copy immediately at the end of the course.
