ATPdigital  – computer based trainingATPdigital CBT dashboard

Our CBT program covers all the EASA Learning Objectives and includes interactive lessons to make studying immersive and engaging. It features animated diagrams, videos and in-built tests, with instant results and progress trackers to ensure your students’ training is as effective as possible. ATPdigital also has a built-in question bank. Students are automatically guided through the subjects as they follow the training programme. This helps to effectively prepare students for their exams.

When we are writing our material we write with questions in mind – we are not limited by the Learning Objectives but we do cover them. This aids students understanding, enabling them to be able to deal with the different exam type questions more effectively and to increase the likelihood of them passing their exams.

Progress is recorded through a series of short quizzes at the end of each section, with instant results, as well as progress tests to conclude each significant section. ATPdigital and our question bank are regularly updated by our instructors.

Features include:

– Works online and offline across multiple platforms
– Quizzes and progress tests embedded in software, to test students understanding for every lesson/subject
– Animations and images throughout
– Real-life case studies
– Lesson search facility

The ATPdigital iPad app is available free from the Apple App Store for students who already have ATPdigital.

Management Reporting and Monitoring System (MRS), including quick and easy exam creation function

Behind the CBT is a comprehensive web-based admin system that allows you and your instructors to monitor student progress in as much detail as you require, and create your own tests, exams and questions.

The results stored in the central database can be accessed through the admin system by your instructors from anywhere.

The admin system assesses the successful completion of the course by the student passing all the lesson quizzes and the progress tests.

Within the system you have the ability to create mock exams and fixed tests in minutes using the BGS question bank.

BGSonline – ATPL question bank

Your students will also receive free access to BGSonline, the original ATPL online question bank, with over 15,000 EASA ATPL fixed-wing and helicopter-specific exam questions. It has detailed explanations and PC, Mac, iPad or smartphone access.
