Drone Training in the North West

Cambridge UAV Academy will be holding another 2-day theory course in Chester.


The Cambridge Academy Proof of Competency (CAP-C) course covers everything you need to know in order to operate a drone for commercial purposes under UK Aviation Law.

Upon successful completion, you will receive a CAP-C Certificate – the qualification you need to apply for a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority.

The CAP-C course entails a 2-day theory ground school culminating in a theory examination, before producing an Operations Manual and taking a practical flight test.

Candidates will have demonstrated their understanding of the rules and regulations governing the commercial use of drones through the 2-day theory ground school.
