LRTT to re-brand as “Resource Group Aviation Technical Training” by September 2014 - Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

As from 29th September 2014 LRTT will be adopting the brand name “Resource Group Aviation Technical Training”. This re-brand is to align LRTT within the parent company brand architecture of Resource Group.

LRTT has been part of Resource Group since 2003 and has now taken the decision to bring all non-Resource Group branded businesses into the corporate umbrella branding structure. This approach will enable Resource Group to better project and promote its portfolio of businesses within the market place and allow the synergies within Resource Group businesses to be better reflected within one brand.

This is a branding change only and it does not affect the legal name so whilst the former brand name of LRTT will no longer be promoted after October 2014, it remains the legal entity. All corporate communications will reflect this by referencing ‘LRTT Limited trading as Resource Group.’

Basic Training: What does Review and Exam mean?

The review and exam product which is offered by SR Technics Training Services comprises the following 3 stages: Self Study, Review and Examination. Upon successful registration you will receive the course notes as a PDF document. It is expected that you take a minimum of 1 month prior to the review class to self-study the notes. During review classes students are given the opportunity to interactively participate and ask our lecturer questions on topics on which they do not feel comfortable yet. The instructor will follow a quicker than usual course flow, hence good preparation is a must. At the end of the review class, the closed book examination is conducted. With a minimum passing grade of 75% you will receive the relevant Part 147 “examination only” certificate.

Basic Training: What happens if I fail an exam?

You will have the chance to be re-examined after a cooling period of 90 days.
Please consult one of our sales representatives to find the best solution for you.
