Aviation English Language Solution - Assessment


DescriptionContent OverviewPrices & Registration

IATA has developed a complete solution for Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers around the world to meet ICAO English language proficiency standards. IATA's Aviation English Solution consists of the following three sequential services.

(1) Assessment Service (2) Language Training (3) Proficiency test -- >> ICAO Proficiency Level 4.    

Assessment service

This service enables organizations to assess their Pilots' and ATCOs' level of English language proficiency in an aviation context. This is the critical first step for any organization to create an action plan. The objective of the assessment is to evaluate pronunciation, structure, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and interaction. A consolidated report with recommendations for training is then provided to the organization.

The IATA Aviation English Language solution for Assessment and Training is offered through Berlitz Languages Inc. For further information, please contact Berlitz directly at aviationenglish@berlitz.com.

Assessment service

This service enables organizations to assess their Pilots' and ATCOs' level of English language proficiency in an aviation context. This is the critical first step for any organization to create an action plan. The objective of the assessment is to evaluate pronunciation, structure, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and interaction. A consolidated report with recommendations for training is then provided to the organization.

The assessment requires that each designated Pilot or ATCO call in to a testing center and participate in an aviation-related conversation with a qualified, native English-speaking rater. The conversation takes up to 15 minutes and is scored based on the ICAO English Proficiency Scale. 

Before the assessments can begin, one person within the organization (the "Client Contact") must confirm the assessment schedule for each of its designated Pilots or ATCOs ("Candidates"). The Internet schedule will always appear in relation to the Client time zone.
