This two-week online course was designed to assist current and aspiring drone pilots with FAA Part 107 test preparation. The full-service program complies with FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) regulations and provides students with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to pass the FAA Part 107 Drone Certification. The class uses interactive individual based testing through Wooclap where students are exposed to many practice questions.
This hybrid, online course is split between student-led components, as well as six live sessions with our sUAS certified instructors who will review content and answer questions to prepare you for passing the Part 107 exam. Our instructors have undergone certification by the FAA, field and safety training, and have real-world sUAS mission experience. Each student will have access to all test prep materials and will get one-on-one attention from instructors as needed.
