It it not just surprising, just plain wrong.

A DA 42 is a multi-engine aircraft and as such it requires a multi-engine rating, here (JAR land) as well as FAA land.

There was a discussion at one time that a DA 42 could not be used for multi-engine training, because it is in theory not a complex airplane (no constant speed props because of FADEC), but that has been decided by the FAA.

No type rating is required for such small planes.
Didn't mean type rating in the 737 type rating way - rather in the way clubs have it here where they want you to have x total time plus x time (like half hour or one hour) with instructor on type before they let you skedaddle alone
