CFPH- Performance & Planning exam restructure

Postby VBlade » Thu Oct 11 2018, 10:20

As some of you may be aware that the CFPH examination will be restructured as of 8th of November 2018 which will consist of additional exam questions and a wider variety of questions within the same 2.5 hr time frame provided.

The CAAP 234-1(1) is being replaced with the CAAP 234-1(2) and CASA 29/18 fuel instrument as permitted material.
Casa “Anticipate” that candidates will be able to finish within the 2.5hr exam time frame even though it appears that the 20 questions are going to now be 32 total.

Information can be found here.
https://www.casa.gov.au/standard-page/i ... t-messages

From what I have seen students currently sitting this exam are utilizing most of the 2.5hrs provided.

Guess that if you study for this now to take the exam prior the change, and fail your first attempt you will need to study the new material to resit the new structure, or if you wait for the change there may be a time constraint with the additional questions and content.

Interested to see others thoughts on whether students about to start this subject should sit this exam before or after the date.

Best advice is go to the USA, get the CPL H , come back do a simple conversion .

Simply a money making racket

So the CAAP 234 is now morphed from 7 pages into 38. Great.
Remember, if it looks too simple to actually work, make it more complicated.

Maybe they are reducing the variable reserve for RPT/Charter from 15% to 10% to offset the increasing weight of onboard documentation.

They are making it harder so they can go ahead with the 457 visa program :D

According to CASA’s Australia wide pass rates CFPH is already the 2nd worst passed subject at around 65% behind flight rules.

So can only imagine these pass rates to drop even further now = Casa pockets get deeper. Oc:=


The states would definitely be the better option for training.... Cheaper, fairer, & more organized.
If I only was aware of the advantages before I started. You might aswell stay and work there if you’re lucky enough also as it appears to have much more opportunity.
