How the assessment works
The assessment evaluates all six ICAO English language proficiency criteria:
Candidates are evaluated individually by a qualified, native English-speaker – usually over the phone - and scored on a rating scale, starting from Level 1 (pre-elementary) to Level 6 (expert). The lowest score obtained out of the six evaluation criteria is the level assigned to the candidate.
Level 4 (operational) language proficiency is the minimum requirement for pilots and air traffic control officers, and additional training is mandatory for candidates with a Level 3 rating or lower. Candidates with a Level 4, 5 or 6 rating do not require any training, only periodic assessment.
Once all assessments are complete, you will receive a detailed Summary Report that includes individualized information for each staff member evaluated:
An assessment for ICAO Level 4 proficiency is a requirement for all:
Pilots and air traffic control officers already rated at Level 4 must be reassessed every three years; level 5 pilots and control officers, every six years.
