Elementary Pilot (EP) Course
The Elementary Pilot rating is the first basic step. It is issued once you have completed some easy tasks and flown a number of solo flights. The EP course is fun and a great introduction into the sport: learning is easy and progression is made quickly. This normally takes 5 days of training. You must complete this before moving on to Club Pilot stage.
Club Pilot (CP) Course
The Club Pilot (CP) rating is what you need to be able to fly solo safely without instructor supervision. It is equivalent to FAI ParaPro Stage 3 and is internationally recognised in most countries. This normally takes a further 5 days. This course includes some theory lessons which provide you with all the knowledge (and more) which you need to pass your multiple choice exams. There is an excellent guide from the BHPA which you can download here.
