All of Garmin’s pilot training opportunities through June 2021 will be in a virtual learning format.

While Garmin usually holds training opportunities in person throughout the year, that has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That led the company to introduce a variety of virtual training opportunities, ranging from Garmin pilot’s guides, PC trainers, eLearning courses, and monthly customer webinars.

Instructor-led virtual training

Instructors focus on scenario-based training through scheduled and on-demand sessions intended for all levels of experience. To see the full calendar of Garmin training events and information on purchasing these classes, go to

eLearning Opportunities

Pilots also can receive instruction through eLearning courses that guide them through scenarios intended to build understanding and proficiency with Garmin avionics. Using a computer, tablet or smartphone, pilots can access the courseware immediately through the eLearning platform.
