Training the next generation

At National Drones, we believe in empowering the next generation of students, to dream bigger and use technology for good. Drones are increasingly becoming well known for their ability to increase safety and efficiencies, whilst reducing costs in comparison to traditional means of data capture. Drones are incredibly agile, and the latest technology means that they can provide rich, detailed information & data which can often be used across different departments to enhance business decisions.

AVI30419 Certificate III Course Overview

Our AVI30419 – Certificate III in Aviation – (Remote Pilot) course is designed to take students from having never operated a RPA to obtaining your Certificate III under the guidance and tuition of experienced course instructors. Our course will also accredit students with an Aeronautical Radio Operators Certificate (AROC), which is required to operate an RPA in Controlled airspace.

This qualification is relevant to individuals operating remotely piloted aircraft (Drones) within visual line of sight, below 400 feet outside of controlled airspace, greater than 3 nautical miles from an aerodrome and outside of populous areas. Remote pilot duties include applying technical and non-technical aviation skills and knowledge. 

Our course is designed from the outset to be as engaging as possible through use of interactivity, supplemented with a study guide written specifically for RPA operations.
