The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) is a new drone qualification that allows you to fly small drones “close to people”. Under the new regulations, you can operate a drone commercially for the first time without needing to spend thousands of pounds on training and CAA Permissions.
The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) is now the first building block of a drone pilot training, for individuals wanting to start a drone business and organisations wanting to use drones commercially in their operations.
Our NEW CAA A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) Course in association with Commercial Drone Training (CAA approved RAE training provider) allows you to fast track becoming a Qualified Drone Pilot, either from your own home or by attending one of our ground school courses. This will allow you to fly safe and legal as a qualified commercial Drone Pilot.
The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) course covers theory such as the basic principles of flight, operating in congested areas, how to avoid collision, battery safety, and weather factors.
Along with your A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) course you can complete some practical flight training either with us on the same day as your ground school or at home under self-monitored circumstances.
Once you have completed the practical flight training you will complete a short multiple-choice test with 30 questions.
The main difference between the PfCO and the new A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) is there is no flight assessment, no need to write an Operations Manual and no need to renew ever 12 months. However the limitations that you will be able to fly under will be dependant of the Class of your drone.
The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) CAA qualification is valid for five years before you need to renew it.
