Keep 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, students 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.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an
essential part of the education process, and participants in TEEX courses are
expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. The course requires
participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of
successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will
review any additional attendance requirement, for example a field exercise that
cannot be missed.
