The Communication theory examination consists of 12 questions of which the candidate is required to indicate the correct or nearest correct answer from a selection of 4 possible answers to each question. The time allowed for the examination is 20 minutes. To pass successfully the candidate must answer a minimum of 9 out of 12 questions correctly (75%)
The syllabus is based on Learning Objectives (LOs) outlined in:
EASA Part-FCL Subpart C Alternate Means of Compliance and Guidance Material (AMC and GM) and
UK CAA Alternative Means of Compliance 1 FCL.210; FCL.215 Syllabus of Theoretical Knowledge and Flight Training for the PPL(A) (CAP1298)”
The UK CAA publish Learning Objectives (LOs) i.e. the syllabus. This can be found via the UK CAA eExam portal here. If you have registered for UK CAA eExam and you may not have done so since examining for a standalone FRTOL (i.e. when training for a microlight, gliding, NPPL etc) is currently outside the scope of the eExam process, then you can fine the Learning Objectives (LOs) document here.
Don’t forget that currently, Communications theory exam is out of scope of the UK CAA’s e-Exam rollout for issuing a standalone Flight Radio Telephony Operators Licence.
