THE PROFICIENCY CARD

The SL/IAD proficiency card is in the back of the IRM. This card needs to be signed off in the required areas before the course starts! If you are already an instructor you can skip the topics that are marked with a "*". The first thing you should do is look at the proficiency card to see what needs to be done prior to the course. It may take some time to complete the signatures on the card. Some topics will get signed during the course by the examiner. This is all marked on the card itself and is pretty much self-explanatory.

THE WRITTEN TEST

One of the requirements to complete the S/L-IAD IRC is taking a written exam prior to the course and scoring at least 80 percent. The questions for this exam and answer sheet are in the back of the IRM. It is an open book test and forces you to read through the IRM and SIM.
