Course Details

<p>This course consists of a mix of reading and watching short videos. Throughout the course, there are short quizzes. These will help you to be sure you have absorbed the information presented. You can go back and review the content at any time. You may repeat any quiz as many times as you’d like.</p>
<p>At the end of this course, you will be asked to take an exam covering all of the information presented. You must achieve a score of 80% or better to pass this exam. If you get less than 80% you may resit the exam.</p>
<p>Upon successful completion of the online theory portion of this course, you will have a good understanding of where you can legally and safely fly your drone. The next step is to complete your practical flight assessment. During the practical assessment the examiner will ask you oral questions on your knowledge of the rules as well as assessing your flying ability.</p>
<p>Module 10 will help you prepare for your practical flight assessment.&nbsp; If you would like to learn more about the flight assessment requirements watch our detailed<span>&nbsp;</span><a href="https://youtu.be/RxQzBo7Yo5w">Flight Assessment</a><span>&nbsp;</span>and<span>&nbsp;</span><a href="https://youtu.be/CaU8yntgNjk">ATTI Mode</a><span>&nbsp;</span>videos.</p>
<p>After you successfully complete your flight assessment you will receive your Recreational RPAS Pilot Certificate. With this qualification you are legally allowed to fly your drone within 4 km of an airport (providing you meet the other legal requirements, as your will learn about during this course.)</p>
<p>
Please note that this course needs to be completed within 12 months. This includes all theory modules, final open book exam and practical flight test with one of our examiners. This is to ensure knowledge gained from the course is more easily recalled for the final practical flight test and oral questioning by the examiner. A candidate who exceeds this timeframe will need to recommence with the purchase of a new course.</p>
