The new UK drone regulations came into force on 31 December 2020.
We currently offer four drone courses:
Part 1 - A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC)
The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) is a new drone qualification that allows you to fly small drones “close to people”. Under the new regulations, you can operate a drone commercially for the first time without needing to spend thousands of pounds on training and CAA Permissions.
A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) is now the first building block of a drone pilot training, for individuals wanting to start a drone business and organisations wanting to use drones commercially in their operations.
Our NEW CAA A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) Course allows you to fast track becoming a Qualified Drone Pilot, from your own home. This will allow you to fly safe and legal as a qualified commercial Drone Pilot.
Part 2 - GVC Course
The online GVC course is a longer more in depth course consisting of online theoretical training and testing. Once complete the student needs to attend a CDTs testing location for the GVC flight test.
There is a selection of three options for the GVC Course
- Online GVC Course
- Online GVC Course with 3 Hour Classroom Refresher
- Traditional GVC Ground School Course
Online GVC Course
The theoretical part of the online GVC course can completed in the comfort of your own home on the device of your choosing.
As you work through the course you can test your knowledge with our free mock tests.
Once the course is complete you can choose to access the comprehensive 80 question mock test, completing this test will give you the confidence to undertake the online theory test with ease.
You are able to do the GVC 44-question multiple choice theory test on-line (invigilated by a CDT examiner using your webcam).
After the successful completion of the theoretical testing phase, a date and time for your GVC flight test will be organised.
Online GVC Course with 2 Hour One to One Zoom Tuition
The refresher course builds on the benefits of completing the online GVC course above but gives the student an additional 2 hours of Zoom-based refresher training ensuring the student is ready for the 44-question multiple choice GVC theory test.
Students complete the theoretical test at the end of the refresher session and then move onto the flight test later that day.

This course includes:
2-day ground school culminating with 44 question multiple choice theory test
