EASA Instrument rating examiner renewal
Part 1178/2011 FCL does not prescribe any flight training for instrument rating examiner - IRE(A) certificate renewal. The instrument rating examiner renewal procedure is very similar to the instrument rating examiner revalidation procedure. Part FCL, however, requires that a flight school - ATO provides a examiner refresh course, also called examiner standardization course.
To renew instrument rating examiner - IRE(A) certificate, it is necessary to meet Part FCL, statute FCL.1025. Pursuant to FCL.1025(a), the standard length of instrument rating examiner - IRE(A) certificate validity is 3 years.
In other words, the process of instrument rating examiner - IRE(A) certificate renewal is similar to the process of instrument rating examiner revalidation. However, the renewal procedures do not require the minimum number of flight exams. Thus no minimum amount of instrument rating license proficiency check nor the instrument rating skill test is required for the renewal of the instrument rating examiner certificate.
Pursuant to FCL.1025(b), instrument rating examiner - IRE(A) certificate validity will be renewed if, within the 12 months of competence validity renewal, the instrument rating examiner:
- undertook a standardization refresh course - examiner standardization training for instrument rating examiners - IRE(A) provided by a EASA ATO - flight school
- undertook one examiner assessment of competence under the inspector of the national aviation authority supervision or the senior examiner's supervision.
