The Training Approval Scheme (TAS) consists of two main parts:

For approval/renewal of a training programme, please complete and return application and payment forms with training material to dgo@caa.co.uk.

Training renewals must be submitted at least 2 months before expiry.

Failure to provide appropriate material in a timely manner may result in a delay to the reissue of the training approval.
