The Aero News Network reported to day that Sporty’s Pilot Shop is about to release their version of an online CFI Refresher Course (eFIRC). The article says that the new course will be released in ‘early Spring’ and will be selling for $99.
The article gives an access url of sportys.com/firc, however the link does not appear to be active yet.
There are to be 17 lessons in the course with each lesson broken down into smaller modules to give more breakpoints when taking the course. Total time to complete the refresher is estimated at 16.5 hours.
Finishing the course and successfully passing the final exam generates a course completion certificate that the CFI may then take to the local FAA office to renew their CFI certificate for another two years.
