Federation Uni & IfDT Drone Induction Flight Basics Course
This course is provided in partnership between The Institute for Drone Technology & Federation University. Drone technology is rapidly advancing in: media & communications, building & construction, agriculture, environmental science and research, infrastructure, emergency services, surveying, conservation & land management, mining and much more. By learning to operate a drone now you will stand out as a candidate in your industry. This course is open to the students and staff of Federation University only.
The course has an online component and a practical component. The online component is based on four modules from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority Remote Pilot Licence course.
The online component consists of learning and some formative assessments, and will take about a full day to complete. However, we recommend you undertake the online component in a self-paced manner over a period of time to assist with better learning.
The practical component is a full day of practical flight training, and include a formal assessment of safe flying skill.
Enrollment closes on the 1st of February 2019 and delivery will take place on successive days from 16th to 22nd February, 2019 at The Centre of Drone Excellence at Lardner Park near Warragul.
The number of participants is strictly limited so we encourage you to enroll now. This will also give you ample time to complete the online component over the summer holidays.
