Resources

Previous content was frequently referred to help learners understand new concepts which helped to embed previous learning as well progress their learning.

  • Overall, an excellent review.
  • The paperwork seen from the ATC/P has been completed to a high standard. It is clear the ATC/P is taking note of the actions mentioned previously and completing these.
