    Assuming that you applied for and received the certificate (passing the exams is not enough), you need to comply with the currency requirements of 61.217.

    Yes i do have the certificate in my hands, so how can i comply with the requirements set forth in the 61.217 FAR? Can a school provide some sort of supervised ground school course?

    Many thanks

    Have another instructor observe you conducting instruction.
    61.217 refers back to 61.213(a)(3) and (4).

    The instructor who will provide the endorsement should see that you follow the FOI principles (i.e. have a syllabus and lesson plans and can deliver a lesson and determine that the instruction was effective) and that the information that you are teaching the correct information.
