However, if a student takes the exam within three months of taking the course and does not pass, AeroCourse will allow a course to be re-taken for no additional charge within one year of the original course date. If within the first three months after the original course a student feels they are not ready to write the exams, they can retake the course for a nominal fee. After three months, the re-take fee for the course is half price from the current course fee for a period of five years from the original course date. Any time a new workbook is required there will be charge for the workbook.
