Our aim is to equip all RPA users with the knowledge and skills required for safe, competent and efficient unmanned aircraft operations in a variety of applications; and to provide further mentoring to ensure you (and your equipment) reach full potential.

We are passionate about helping you learn, so our courses have been developed to cater for all levels of experience. We offer in-person training at our facilities in Eagle Farm (Brisbane) as well as customised on-site programs to meet individual requirements.

Licensing regulations for drones in Australia:

CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) in Australia issues licences to operate drones commercially.

  • As a business, you are required to hold a Remote Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) to operate drones commercially.
