Peter, some subjects are credited such as Meteorology , Human factors, and radio telephony of course.

This means the CPL candidate will need to do Air law, POF & ATG and Nav and Planning ground school and exams. ( Nav and planning is an advisory )

Then practical flight training followed by skills test when the candidate is ready.

my personal suggestion focus on CPL there is more work around than there is for RPL.

not looking for work , just curious what training is needed to qualify for commercial activities. Also liability issues if you don't adhere to the regs
