Just a couple points of clarity.. There are still 6 locations. Each location has several instructors. It creates a lot of variety. As for standardization, I am currently in IFS and the range of strictness, teaching style, and expectations is extremely wide from one instructor to the next. I imagine that will be a fair representation of Primary, but seeing as I haven't been there I can't speak on that. Also, my guess is that IFS is a good primer for API. As API expands on what is taught in IFS ground school. I would expect attrition to drop accordingly. I fail to see how that is a bad thing. Current gouge being put out is that 'IFS' has directed the schools to attrite more people to show the effectiveness of IFS.
