A Rotax RFSC Seminar Refresher Course is slated for Feb. 20 at California Power Systems at the Oakland International Airport in California.
The Rotax training guidelines for iRMT qualifications, which started in January 2008, have reached their first major milepost, that of the 24-month window. For many this year will mark the first return of students trained under the iRMT standards since its beginning. This mandate is consistent with the spirit of the FAA training ideals of maintaining currency under the maintenance standards.
To assist in this recurrent training, new proposals have been developed. In all cases, existing RFSC cards will be invalid after the 24-month period.
Current iRMT Technicians can renew their current ratings by attending a one-day Refresher Course Saturday Feb 20 at the CPS Oakland North Field Training Facility in Oakland, Calif. For current iRMT license holders, this is the most inexpensive and informative way to get a 24 month extension on your current certification, according to CPS officials.
The renewal program covers all new materials released within the past 24 months. As per all RFSC programs, a written review test must be passed to renew your certificate.
Only iRMTs with an expiration date no more than three months from Feb. 20 qualify for this quick extension program. All iRMTs past this grace period will have to take the training qualifications from the beginning.
California Power Systems, the only West Coast Rotax Training Center, has recently completed a new training and maintenance facility, which includes a newly constructed 600-plus square foot classroom designed especially for advanced Rotax training. The new facility is equipped with wireless Internet, large screen LCD TV Monitor for slide show and video presentations, built-in audio system, clean room assembly area, climate control, and dedicated food service area. Facilities are designed for students to do hands-on work on both an actual aircraft as well as full teardown and reassembly of a Rotax engine. A few steps outside the classroom a working aircraft offers every student the opportunity to perform most any service or maintenance operation on a running powerplant.
Next classes are scheduled for Feb. 10-20, when all five segments will be conducted. ( Two Cycles, 912 Service, 912 Maintenance, and 912 Heavy Maintenance, Refresher Course).
