Remote Pilot Certification Prep Course

0 STUDENTS ENROLLED

    The sUAS Ground School Course sets a sturdy foundation of required aeronautical knowledge for remote pilots of UAS less than 55 pounds. The curriculum addresses all pertinent aeronautical knowledge factors outlined by the FAA for the Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) examination and augments those with safety concepts and practices to develop well-informed and responsible remote pilots. Students who successfully complete the course receive a certificate of completion from ARGUS Unmanned and are well prepared to pass the UAG exam.
