Occasionally I had to retry going to the next page. There was somewhat more repetition than I thought necessary. The reviews at the end of each chapter could be more comprehensive. Overall, it is well-designed and easy to use. Videos could be used to emphasize key points and make it more interesting.February 2, 2018Purchased
1 month agoReliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSportys FIRC is thorough, well organized and presented and inclusive for FAA Ground Instructors as well as Flight InstructorsExcellent. Thorough solid presentation of all topics. Accessibility for review following completion for one year is a great feature. The access and process to submit for WINGS credit is not made clear in the initial materials and did not appear on my computer until I had completed the course and printed my graduation certificate and then returned to the course website a couple of days after completion. In the meantime, I was at a loss as to submission for WINGS credit even though the course has an excellent segment on the WINGS program.November 22, 2017Purchased
4 months agoPerformance2 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoI found this eFIRC hard going. Yes, it is an eFIRC but the last one I took had better content and videos that I still remember two years later. I was really frustrated by the 45 minutes allotted to each and every segment. The more meaty ones took twice that amount of time. The lesser could be done in 15 minutes. The were several typos throughout the course. And at least one statement that was completely wrong. I shall not be using this eFIRC again.October 11, 2017Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?Yesvery comprehensiveWhen I signed up I was expecting each lesson to be about 45 minutes to an hour long. At that rate I thought it would take 16 to 20 hours to complete the entire course.
In reality, with all the changes to the CFI environment I wound up researching each area of review and took notes and downloaded all the new versions of the advisory circulars.
When I was all done I think I must have spent over fifty hours on the course but I am happy with that because I feel that I had an excellent review of everything.October 10, 2017Purchased

6 months agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFIRCThis was my first time that I have renewed using an online course. I've always taken the weekend seminar so was a little concerned that I might not find time to work it in.
I need not have been worried because the subjects were relevant and informative. They made me have the urge to continue on through them.
I'll definitely be using it again for my next renewal.July 29, 2017Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent, relevant, professionalI have taken several different FIRCs from other vendors over the years and this one is flight levels above the rest. The information was in depth and relevant, the embedded links and videos supported the topic extremely well. I found a few new excellent web links because of this course. The only frustration was the "hard time"-each section was allotted 45 minutes and you are not allowed to take the final quiz until at least 40 minutes passed. It also prevented you from advancing too quickly. This was a bit frustrating for me because I am a fast reader. I spoke with one on the customer service reps at Airventure and he told me that the FAA forced them to do this. Regardless, the course was excellent and I will use this again in 24 months.July 26, 2017Purchased
