Details

This is an eight week course that covers the techniques and best practices required to safely and successfully utilize drones for inspection purposes. Every aspect of operations is covered, from equipment, preflight planning and legal compliance to operational procedures, flight training, and data collection.

 


About the Course

We will work through the entire mission cycle, starting with legal compliance, planning, and then pre and post flight operations. The Vale UAS Operator Certification is an industry standard and “must-have” for anyone in the industry who is planning to use a drone for photography and inspection work on site.


About the Exam

In order to fly your drone under the FAA's Small UAS Rule (Part 107), you must obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA. This certificate demonstrates that you understand the regulations, operating requirements, and procedures for safely flying drones. Under this special program with CWA, your exam fee is reimbursed by CWA. Please request the form from your instructor.

Exam must be taken within 60 days from the end of the course.
