IRATA L2 Study Guide

The IRATA syllabus very neatly details everything you need to know for whatever level you’re certifying for, but the wording which accompanies the differently shaded boxes can be a little vague. What does ‘demonstrating competence’ and ‘showing awareness’ actually mean? We’re going to simplify it for you, by going through each of the items on the IRATA L2 syllabus in the TACS (Training Assessment Certification Scheme) and breaking down exactly what you need to know for your assessment. If you want to master your IRATA L2, use this as your study guide!
