PfCO Drone Training Course

Stoke-on-Trent - Staffordshire


We're happy to announce that we are now running our ICARUS drone training courses in the Midlands from 2018. Our course is hosted at Premier Meetings Stoke (Trentham Gardens), Stone Road, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ST4 8JG.

Trentham Gardens is less than 10 minutes from Junction 15 off the M6 and has plenty of free parking. With a retail village and restaurants onsite, why not stay at the hotel and explore the nearby attractions?

What is the timetable for the course?

Below is an outline of the ICARUS Theory Course syllabus; it shows the lessons you will undertake in order to learn the required information to be a competent and safe commercial operator. The theory course culminates with a multiple choice examination of 50 questions. The pass mark for the exam is 80% – but do not be phased by this! We will ensure that you have the required knowledge to pass the exam by the time you come to sit it.
