Qualifications: 

Important information for training providers: new PPL licensing regulations

CYQ would like to inform training providers that changes have been made to PPL licensing regulations. To assist centres, the team at Pure Energy has provided us with a summary of the new regulations and guidance on how centres can apply for a PPL license.

Do training providers require a PPL license?

Yes, unless you are a training provider teaching in primary or secondary schools you must have a PPL license to be legal. There has been a general belief that students and providers in education were exempt from PPL licensing but this is not the case.
