I live in Western Australia but have always travelled to AMC Search to revalidate my certificate due to the professionalism of the AMC Search team, the course material and the lecturers' relevant knowledge of all the subjects. The accommodation and the on campus eating venue are convenient and the simulator centre is excellent.
