Transition Now, the applicant must meet with his Certifying Officer (in this case, a Designated Examiner) in order to complete the application. When he meets with his Certifying Officer, the CO must verify his identity and then log into IACRA and retrieve his application, as shown on the following slides.
Certifying Officer – Applicant Retrieval The Certifying Officer, having already registered, logs into IACRA using his username, password, and FTN. He then enters Matt Goods FTN into IACRA to retrieve his application.
Certifying Officer – Application Selection The CO clicks the Select button to choose the current working application for Matt Good. Then, the CO clicks Next to start his certifying process.
Certifying Officers Checklist The Certifying Officers Checklist appears. The CO must go through all of the items on this checklist before the applicant is considered certified. The first item requires the CO to Verify Airman Identification.
Certifying Officer – Verify Airman Identification The applicant, Matt Good, presents the CO with a valid form of identification (drivers license, military ID, passport, etc.) The CO enters the type and ID number into IACRA and clicks OK.
Certifying Officers Checklist The CO sees that the first item has been completed by the presence of a check mark. The COs Checklist is dynamic in that if completion of an item is not required by the CO, then that item is inactive. Other items, such as signing the 8710-1 form, remain inactive until IACRA determines all other necessary steps have been completed.
CO – Review Airman Knowledge Test Report The CO retrieves Matt Goods Airman Knowledge Test Report to visually verify that he passed. Once the CO closes this report, IACRA interprets this action as the CO completing the task.
Certifying Officers Checklist With the review of Matt Goods Airman Knowledge Test Report, the CO can then move on to reviewing the 8710-1 application.
CO – Review 8710-1 Application The CO retrieves Matt Goods 8710-1 application to visually verify that all elements have been entered correctly by IACRA. Once the CO finishes the inspection and closes the 8710, IACRA interprets this action as the CO completing the task. Note that this 8710-1 is an unofficial copy.
Certifying Officers Checklist With the review of Matt Goods 8710-1 application, the CO can then move on to reviewing the Privacy Act Statement.
CO – Review Privacy Act Information The CO lets the applicant review the Privacy Act Information to ensure that the applicant is aware of his rights with regard to the personal information he is providing the government.
Certifying Officers Checklist With the review of the Privacy Act Statement, it is now time to have Matt Good, the applicant, digitally sign his 8710-1 form.
CO – Watches Applicant Digitally Sign Application The CO watches as the applicant, Matt Good, digitally signs the application. Matt clicks the Sign Application button.
Applicant Digitally Signs Application After being manually validated by his Certifying Officer, the applicant selects the Click Here to Sign link in the 8710-1 form and digitally signs his application. His name appears in the application as a representation that he has signed it.
Applicant Digitally Signs Application IACRA indicates to the applicant that his digital signature was successfully applied. The applicant clicks the Return to Login button so that the Certifying Officer can then log into IACRA to finish the approval process.
Certifying Officers Checklist Now that the applicant has digitally signed the 8710-1 application, the COs ability to digitally sign is activated. Note the Click here to Sign 8710-1 Application link in the Certifying Officers Checklist is now active and the Applicant Sign link is rendered inactive. The next step is to take the applicant for his check ride so that the CO can Enter Practical Test Results.
CO – Enter Practical Test Results The CO, having taken the applicant for his check ride, must now enter the applicants Practical Test Results. After the CO enters all of the appropriate information (some information requires accessing sub-screens to complete), he selects (ideally) the Click Here to Approve link to send the data to IACRA and to signal that this step is complete. Note the CO has the option of generating a Notice of Disapproval or a Discontinuance.
Certifying Officers Checklist The next step for the CO is to Enter Limitations that the applicant might have to his certification.
CO – Enter Limitations The CO selects from a list of limitations those that pertain to the applicants certification. For example, Matt Good, the applicant above, has the Limited to Land limitation added by the CO. The CO then clicks OK and sends the data to IACRA.
Certifying Officers Checklist The next step is for the CO and applicant to view the temporary summary to ensure all data is correct.
CO – View Temporary Summary The temporary certificate summary shows a synopsis of the important certificate information for which the applicant is applying.
Certifying Officers Checklist With all of the items on the Certifying Officers Checklist complete, all that is left to do is to have the CO sign the applicants 8710-1 form.
CO – Digitally Sign 8710-1 Application The CO clicks the Sign Application button to digitally sign the 8710- 1 form.
CO – Digitally Sign 8710-1 Application The CO selects the yellow Click Here to Sign link to apply his digital signature to the 8710-1 form.
CO – Digitally Sign 8710-1 Application The COs signature is added to the application. The CO can now do the following: Review the Temporary Certificate Return to Login Sign another application The CO clicks the link to Review Temporary Certificate.
CO – Review Temporary Certificate The CO and the applicant both review the temporary certificate. The CO prints a copy out of the temporary certificate for the applicant to use while he waits for the Registry to process his application. Matt Good will then receive his permanent certificate from the Registry within 120 days.
