IA Renewal Seminars

and it's LIVE on the Internet! 

About Our Inspection Authorization Refresher Training Seminar

Our FAA Inspection Authorization Refresher Training Seminar that qualifies for IA Renewal. We are very excited to present this course to you with some groundbreaking changes. We have divided this course into two parts:

  • The first part of our course is the required 8 hours of training. This part is NOW FREE to everyone, all year round. That's right FREE! The next big change is that the course now works on all platforms, including cellphones. No passwords necessary required!
  • The second part is you can use our course to meet the FAA 8 hours of training required by FAR 65.93(4). We have developed a Final Quiz. Prior to taking the quiz you will need to go through the 8 blocks of training. You then pay for, and pass the final quiz with at least 70% correct. At that point you can print the completion certificate to present to the FAA. The cost of the refresher training, and then the quiz is $59, half of what the cost was before. This allows you to see and review all the material contained in our course and then pay and take the QUIZ. No other program will allow you to do that, and learn so much!

You must be wondering, why is our unique course in the FARs FREE? Throughout the years I have enjoyed training and helping mechanics to become IAs. I also have spent a considerable amount of time getting IAs, A&Ps, and Repair Stations out of trouble with the FAA for FAR violations. I feel at this point that I would get far more satisfaction out of providing this information FREE so that you don’t violate the FARs in the first place. I feel this important information should be freely available to everyone with simple understanding;

  • I have put together ALL the FARs that apply to a Repair Station or A&P working on small aircraft, or an IA inspecting them. Each instance in the course that refers to an FAR, AC, AD or other FAA document, is linked directly to that document on the FAA’s website.
  • It should be noted that, FAR 23 was revised recently and can no-longer be used by an IA! Because of that, all references to FAR 23 in our course are linked to the previous (historical) FAR 23, because that version relates to the Inspection Authorization function currently.
  • Through the years I have created several things that, if followed, will keep you from violating one of these FARs. ALL of this is now FREE.
  1. Our copyrighted Airworthiness Flowchart. The front, if followed from right to left, will give you a determination of Airworthiness. The backside explains how it works. You can download it and keep it in your toolbox.
  2. Our Annual Inspection Flowchart, and our Annual Checklist, also downloadable. Our course explains the advantages of using both.
  3. Also videos that demonstrate how to read and interpret both Airworthiness Directives (ADs), and Type Certificate Data Sheets (TCDSs).
  4. Our new addition is Form 337 Field approval with Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA).

So what are you paying for? To renew your IA under FAR 65.93(4) requires an IA to receive 8 hours of training each year between April 1st and the following March 31st. In order to take and pass this quiz you will have to review ALL 8 Blocks of Learning, which run about an hour each to complete. The quiz consists of 100 questions, many of which the answers can only be found by having read the material. The added benefit is that, as you review the material, you are gaining knowledge that will allow you to perform your job as an IA with greater assurance that you will not violate one of these FARs. The cost is for taking and passing the quiz, is now $59.
