The ICARUS Standard Course is our base drone drone training course that leads through to you attaining your PfCO from the CAA. You will sit a 2 day theory course in a classroom at one of our training centres which will culminate in a written exam.

You will also get access to our invaluable ICARUS Resource Library, giving you a wealth of E-Learning and downloadable resources.

On successfully completing the theory course you will then have to complete a practical flying assessment with your drone.

The final part of the course is the completion of an Operations Manual. When you have completed all 3 elements of the course you will be awarded an NQE Recommendation Certificate that you can use to apply for your PfCO from the CAA.
