* Podcast #78 ~ "Benefits of Earning a Ground Instructor Certificate" by TC FREEMAN, March 10, 2105. We answer a subscribers question, "Would you recommend earning a Ground Instructor certificate for helping youth through teaching ground schools?" 



Show Notes: The term "Fundamentals of Instruction" Knowledge Test should be "Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI)."

A reference is made that the FOI written (Knowledge) test is like the Private Pilot Knowledge test. To clarify, it is similar in format but different in content. 

Get started by studying the "Aviation Instructors Handbook." Knowledge test study guides can be found by doing an internet search for "FOI and AGI study guides."
