CPD Drone Training Course

Enhance operational effectiveness

heliguy™ CPD (Continuing Professional Development) drone training enhances pilot expertise and advocates best practices to maximise a drone team’s operational effectiveness.

Developing advanced pilot competence enables a drone programme to achieve new levels of capability, including increased return on investment, better data collection and a more robust response in an emergency situation.

Designed for drone programmes with qualified pilots, the CPD course ensures operators continue to fly to a high standard, are operating in strict accordance with the rules and regulations, and receive guidance on how to operate the latest technology.

During the training, our expert instructors will:

  • Deliver one-to-one guided learning activities, including advanced flight training and manoeuvres including simulated EVLOS/BVLOS;
  • Review the organisation's Operations Manual to ensure it remains compliant;
  • Evaluate operational procedures to ensure they are effective, and provide consultation for improvements;
  • Advise on changes to drone regulations and legislation.

heliguy™ runs two types of CPD course: For the emergency services and for enterprise organisations. The courses are CPD-verified. 

What Is CPD?

Enhance personal skills and proficiency

CPD is widely regarded as a mandatory activity in the continuation of any professional enterprise, helping to maintain an optimal level of safety and service provision.

It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive, and is a commitment, made by professionals, towards the effective enhancement of personal skills and proficiency throughout their careers.

Through specialised learning and industry-specific tuition, the heliguy™ CPD course expands pilot skill sets, facilitating further validation of a drone operator’s capabilities beyond the minimum requirements of the National Aviation Authorities' mandatory assessment.

The CPD courses build on heliguy™’s foundation training, such as the Emergency Services Drone Operators Training or industry-specific GVC tuition, to provide continuity and offer a structured, progressive and end-to-end training package.
