ConsortiQ, have announced it is now an Approved Training Centre, able to award the ProQual Level 3 Certificate and Level 4 Diploma in The Remote Piloting of Unmanned Aircraft Systems for Commercial Operation. It is now the first Training Centre of it’s kind to offer an Aviation Regulator approved and Academically recognised drone qualification in one course – the Unmanned Aircraft Qualification (UAQ).
From 1st April 2017, all candidates will automatically be enrolled to receive the Level 3 certificate upon successful completion of the UAQ course. This includes both the Ground School and Flight Assessment exams. Those who go on to complete an Operations Manual, with the view of applying for a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO), will be able to obtain a ProQual Level 4 Diploma by applying to ConsortiQ retrospectively and paying the admin fee.
John Gore, Operations Manager at ConsortiQ said, “The team at ConsortiQ are delighted to have our Unmanned Aircraft Qualification recognised by ProQual for Level 3 Certification, and Level 4 Diplomas. Additionally, we are thrilled to be a ProQual approved training centre, able to deliver this qualification to our customers. This combination of an Aviation Regulator approved and Academically accredited qualification is the first of its kind in the rapidly growing drone industry, and we believe this will set a benchmark for drone training worldwide. Any of our graduates or candidates who have completed training previously, or are in the process of doing so, may also take advantage of this qualification.”
