Full course description

The Remote Pilot Exam Prep Training course is a workforce development program designed for individuals who want to either earn their FAA Remote Pilot Certificate or simply gain new knowledge in order to operate their small unmanned aerial vehicle (sUAS) with more confidence.

Participants must successfully complete the course within a three-week period in order to obtain the certificate of completion. The course is delivered in 100% online, asynchronous, and on-demand format.
