# RTC Overview

The RTC is the Recruit Training Course that helps new members learn the theory that the group applies while flying.

With the theory available online, the recruit will have the environment to learn and review independently from the Training Instructor (TI).

While the RTC will be the basis for learning the material, be sure to ask your TI and your Mentor questions when anything is unclear.
