ATPLOnline Course Extension Policy

General course extensions and extensions for KDR purposes

When you purchase an ATPLOnline course from us, you are purchasing access to the course material for a specific time frame. Our courses usually have a 6 month semester, which means once paid, you will get online access for six months. During this time, you will benefit from any updates, additions and course improvements that we make. On occasion, this may also include complete course revisions - which usually happens when course syllabi get updated by NZCAA or CASA.

Six months per course is usually plenty of time to learn the course content, sit and pass your exams, and complete any required Knowledge Deficiency Reports as may be required. Make sure you plan your time so that you use your access to the course wisely. This is an online course, so please also make sure you have good internet access before purchasing.

We realise that sometimes students may require extra time to complete their course(s), so we provide TWO different ways to do this;

How to receive FREE course extensions.

Currently, there is one way you can do this.

1. Purchase multiple ATPLOnline courses at the same time. The number of courses you purchase at the same time will determine the amount of extra FREE course time you will receive. For example, if you purchase all SEVEN ATPLOnline courses, you will receive 12 months course access per course - that’s double the normal amount of time! Contact us for details:

We do not provide any other free course access to our ATPLOnline courses after a course semester has finished. You are purchasing ‘time on site’, which has a finite duration. So please do not ask us for free extensions, as we do not want to offend you when we say no. 

How to receive PAID course extensions.

We offer a large range of course extension options from within each course. You must have an active enrolment (within the initial 180 days of enrolment) within a course for an extension to be applied. You can access paid extensions from the Main Lesson Page within each course you are enrolled in.

These range from 10 days right through to 90 extra days. Extra time will be added onto;

  1. The last day of your current course semester (the 180th day if purchased during your current course semester).

If your enrolment has expired, you will NOT be able to purchase an extension to your expired course. All extensions can only be purchased and applied from an active course enrolment. You may extend a current course no more than TWICE. If you need more time after TWO course extensions - you will need to repurchase the course in FULL.

If you have further questions about this policy, please email us at

Limited course access for KDR's after your course has expired.

If you have completed your course here at ATPLOnline, or completed our courses through your Flight Training Organisation - and you wish to access our courses AFTER your course semester has expired for KDR purposes, you must purchase a course extension as detailed above, and provide your examination results as proof you have completed the external exam.  You can then purchase a limited course extension from us. Please email with this information and we will organise your payment and access.
