How long does the Certified Flight Instructor course take to complete?
A full-time student enrolled in our CFI course will attend Ground School 3 hours per day (Monday through Friday), accumulating a total of 60 hours. Students will then begin the FIT training portion of their training in the Cessna 172 (G1000) for 16 hours as well as one-on-one ground instruction to prepare you for the checkride. Students who are dedicated to completing their CFI course can complete it within a 6-week period.
Part-time students typically take 12 weeks to finish their CFI course (depending on their circumstances) based on an estimated 3 activities per week. However, our course durations are estimates, and we highly encourage you to chat with an Epic representative about your training requirements and the availability for a schedule that fits your needs.
