Don‘t spend your time living by fixed schedules, in drab classrooms, while trying to follow the boring elaborations of uninspiring teachers. Thanks to our Distance Learning Courses you can learn where, when, and at whatever pace suits you best. But you‘re never alone, because we‘re always there for you.

Our Distance Learning Courses are booked exclusively through our partnered schools, after you‘ve enrolled as a student with them. The smallest amount of time is actually spent in the respective school itself, with distance learning requiring very little time in a classroom. The time needed represents around 10% of what you‘d spend in a classroom for a full-time class.

To illustrate the cooperation between a dedicated school and CAT, picture it like a general practitioner and a physician working together. The patient‘s (student‘s) general practitioner (dedicated school) sends the patient to a specialist (CAT) for special treatment (Distance Learning). Afterwards the specialist informs the general practitioner about all results in detail. CAT Europe is solely a distance learning provider and offers no classroom teaching. CAT Europe is a partner of the dedicated schools.

If you haven‘t yet decided on or enrolled at a dedicated school yet, you can still acquire our teaching material to study in advance. This is later deducted if you book a distance learning course.



Distance Learning mit CAT Europe

According to international scientific findings on teaching methodology, the method of Blended Learning is by far the best way of learning. With blended learning, classroom time and distance learning are mixed (blended). We provide the full courseware and E-Learning Technology for the distance learning element.

Advantages of Distance Learning: • Individual adoption of learning based on personal rhythms (some students prefer studying at night, others during the day) • Flexible lesson start (every time; no waiting periods) • Flexible time management • Individual learning progress (student is not being slowed down or hurried by other classmates) • No accommodation costs (learning from home) • No social pressure (did not understand but doesn’t dare ask again in order to “save face”) • No competitor pressure (“the others are so fast, but I am slow”) • Lower expenses (approximately a third of the cost of a full-time course)

Advantages of Classroom Learning: • Context for learning can be developed in front of the student • Instructor can answer questions immediately during the classroom time

How is the “Blended Learning” concept put into effect at CAT Europe now? Our system consists of: • Correspondence course (folders, ebooks) • 24-hour support from authors and teachers from the first day by e-mail or telephone • Use of Internet for communication between participants and teachers, and for intermediate online tests, final online tests, etc. • 1- to 2-week final seminars (depending on type of course) in connection with EASA-approved ATOs in Europe and USA

Many ATOs have increasingly integrated our system into their programs, offering a mix of correspondence course elements and classroom elements, often combined with the flight-training phase (integrated courses).

Blended Learning = best training methodology

All of our distance learning courses are certified through the German Central Agency for Distance Learning (ZFU) and are based on the current EASA Part-FCL guidelines and learning requirements.
We are a Theory-ATO (Approved Training Organization) with teaching permissions granted by the German Federal Aviation Office (LBA). Our courses can be used across all of EASA.
