Frequently Asked Questions
Read our frequently asked questions for fast answers.
What is the cost associated with the online Engineering Designee Recurrent training?
At this time the courses will maintain the same cost as in previous years, however in the future the cost may change. The Engineering Designee Seminar program is a revenue neutral program which means that the cost of tuition must match the costs incurred to develop and deliver the courses. Online course development costs may, in the future, necessitate an increase in tuition due to the increase in development and delivery expense. Jump to top
Will there be a printout or CD of all DER disciplines available with the online training?
Yes. Each course/topic will include a document in pdf format for download. This document will include the course content and transcript. The online courses will also include a Glossary and Resource tab with links to the most current AC, Orders, TSO, Regulatory and Guidance Library and Handouts where applicable. Jump to top
When does the course expire and when must I finish the course?
Electrical: December 31, 2013
Structures: December 31, 2013
Example: The Electrical course consists of 7 courses. You must have all courses completed by December 31, 2013 to receive credit for the Electrical Module. However, this completion date is NOT related to your recurrent training requirements. December 31, 2013 is the date that these courses are set to expire to be replaced by new courses. Jump to top
Are the online courses based on calendar year or is the course credit based on my DER renewal cycle time frame?
The requirements for DER Recurrent training are contained in Para 803 (g) of FAA Order 8100.8D. The online training has not changed that requirement. "DERs may satisfy the 2 year requirement by attending a DER seminar in the calendar year it is due." Jump to top
