RPL online theory training

Hello,

How many of the RPL training schools have their theory portion of the RPL available online? I have seen that Starlight Aviation has an online course and then the flying practical but are there others?

I am based in KZN

I'm not listing them all, just a few I know of, and in no particular order either.

The thing is that you need to choose one that you can do the practical with as well.
