Course Description

droneKeep up with changing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements to remain ahead of the curve among commercial drone pilots. As of August 2016, anyone operating a drone for any commercial or business purpose must obtain an FAA remote pilot certification. This highly focused course prepares you for the test to receive this certification. Beyond drone-specific material, participants will gain an understanding of much of the ground-school information covered in the FAA’s knowledge test.

The course fee includes a workbook and 50 FAA sample test questions. Actual FAA testing must be administered at an authorized Knowledge Testing Center and is not included in the course fee.
