English Language Proficiency Assessment in Accordance with the ICAO Rating Scale   
 

WHAT IS TELLCAP®? 

TELLCAP® – Test of English Language Level for Controllers and Pilots – assesses general and aviation English language proficiency in accordance with the ICAO Language Proficiency Rating Scale. TELLCAP® developed by Complang Aviation Training Centre has been in operation since 2006 both in Russia and abroad. 

TELLCAP® is approved by the Russia’s CAA (Rosaviatsia) and accredited by the Interstate Aviation Committee. 

TELLCAP® is designed in line with the ICAO requirements for language testing described in Manual on the implementation of ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements (Doc 9835) and ICAO Circular 318 “Language Testing Criteria for Global Harmonization”. 

TELLCAP® is oriented on the ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices stated in Annex 1 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation “Personnel Licensing”.Two external validations prove ТELLCAP® validity.

Validation reports are available.  

 

WHO IS TELLCAP® DESIGNED FOR? 

TELLCAP® is designed to assess English language proficiency of pilots, navigators, flight radio operators and air traffic controllers.

TELLCAP® evaluates Levels 1 through 5 in accordance with the ICAO Language Proficiency Rating Scale.   


WHAT DOES TELLCAP® ASSESS? 

TELLCAP® is designed to assess the ability to communicate effectively on “common, concrete and work-related topics” as well as the ability to handle “linguistic challenges presented by a complication or unexpected turn of events” and to resolve tasks that may arise during radiotelephony communications when ICAO standard phraseology does not suffice. Test topics exploit Lexical Events and Domains listed in Doc 9835, Appendix B. TELLCAP® assesses ONLY listening and speaking skills 

TELLCAP® assesses the ability to communicate in voice-only and in face-to-face situations. 

TELLCAP® DOES NOT assess the knowledge of ICAO standard phraseology or operational competence.
