Ensuring air safety with clear communication

Airline passengers depend on pilots and air traffic controllers to communicate with each other clearly to ensure their safety in the air and on the ground.

The Versant Aviation English Test enables airlines to comply with the English language proficiency requirements set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), while offering aviation employers a test that is practical to use.

Help your pilots and air traffic controllers achieve ICAO compliance with this accurate, reliable testing solution.

Robust for accurate, meaningful results

The Versant Aviation Certification Test was built in conjunction with the FAA by a cross-disciplined team of experts.

The test underwent extensive field trials that demonstrate the test has strong validity and reliability, allowing you to feel confident you are using a fair and accurate test for your pilots and air traffic controllers.

Relevant to aviation, compliant with ICAO standards

The Versant Aviation Certification Test complies with the standards and requirements ICAO has established for English language testing.

The test assesses both aviation English and general English as specified by ICAO, in an authentic manner that simulates the radiotelephony communication used on the job by pilots and air traffic controllers.

Streamlined and scored automatically to save time

Your staff can easily administer the Versant tests by having employees take the test on a test center computer in a secure, proctored location.

Pearson automatically scores the Versant Aviation Certification Test, making a detailed score report available for you in the online reporting system within minutes.

We are totally confident in the readiness of our pilots and air traffic controllers because the Versant Aviation Certification Test was rigorously developed and is ICAO compliant.
