EASA PART-FCL New Syllabus implementation
Following a conversation with the UK CAA today:
A New theoretical knowledge Syllabus will be implemented in parallel with the existing Old Syllabus by CATS from 1st August 2020 and independently the UK CAA will offer New Syllabus exams utilising ECQB2020 from 1st August 2020.
From the 1st January 2021 candidates will not be able to take Old Syllabus exams utilising ECQB06 for their first attempt.
ECQB06 will remain available in parallel with ECQB2020 until the end of June 2022 for candidates who have already started the Old syllabus series.
The latest date for a student to take their first exam utilising the existing Old Syllabus is 31st December 2020 permitting a full 18 months to complete their exam series on the Old Syllabus utilising ECQB06.
The advice from CATS is that if you wish to remain with a familiar Old Syllabus and to take ECQB06 exams then enrol with CATS at least 3 months before the 31st December 2020 cut-off date to commence an initial attempt at the Old Syllabus series exams before 31st December 2020.
