To get an FAA AGI – Advanced Ground Instructor certificate, you simply need to take and pass the appropriate FAA knowledge exams – Fundamentals of Instructing – FOI and Ground Instructor Advanced. There are vendors out there that sell questions/answers bank to help prepare for these tests. Once you have taken these 2 test, you can visit with an ASI at your local FSDO office and pick up your temporary AGI certificate.
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
– Albert Einstein
Receiving training from an instructor, or a recommendation (endorsement) is not required per the Federal Aviation Regulations. Ground Instructor eligibility requirements are listed in FAR 61 Subpart I.
It is evident that for FAA certification, training and instructor endorsement are not required. However, if you are in this to really become an effective teacher of aviation, then you would need the same classroom training that a Flight Instructor applicant needs to pass the CFI practical test.
The training is inline with our philosophy of “it’s not CFI; it’s CF-WHY!”
