What is the CAA A2 C of C Certification?

The A2 C of C (A2 Certificate of Competency) is a new drone qualification that was introduced on the 31st December 2020 which allows people to fly small drones 'close to people' and under the new regulations, you can operate a drone commercially for the first time without needing to spend ££££'s on training and CAA Authorisation!

The new A2 subcategory will allow you to ‘fly closer to people’ if you hold an A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) and are flying either a C2 class aircraft or if your drone weighs less than 2Kg but more than 250g; so it's the perfect qualification if you're flying drones like those in the DJI Mavic Series (Mavic 1, 2 or 3) and the Parrot Anafi.

You'll need to do an A2 C of C Training Course and Theory Examination with a CAA Approved Drone Training school like UAVHub to be able to get your A2 Certificate and take advantage of the amazing opportunities this new system offers for Drone Pilots who fly small drones!

Frequently Asked Questions about the A2 C of C Course...

  • Once I sign up, how long do I have, to complete the training?

We have removed the time limit to complete the training so take as long as you need! Many people complete everything (including their Examination) in 24-48 hours!

  • How many Mock Examinations are available? 

When you join our course, you'll have access to an unlimited amount of Mock Examinations! Our Mock Examination System uses an ever-growing bank of questions and 'creates' a random Mock Examination for you each time you start a new Mock Exam. We've found that people taking the Mock Exam a number of times do VERY well in the Final Examination as they are fully prepared!

  • Are there any resit fees if I fail the Theory Examination?

No - there are NO resit fees if you should fail on your first attempt at the A2 Theory Exam in the VERY unlikely event that you need to take a second attempt (our first-time pass rate is more than 99.9%!).

  • How many questions are there in the Theory Examination?

There are a total of 30, multiple-choice questions in the A2 C of C Theory Examination and you have 75 minutes to complete the examination.

  • What is the Pass-Mark for the Theory Examination?

The pass mark is 80% - the highest in the industry... We pride ourselves on this and the fact that UAVHub students are known for their 'better than average' understanding and knowledge. Don't worry about this though; our teaching means that you'll be easily able to achieve this, just like the thousands of other successful candidates who have gone before you!

  • How long do I get for the Theory Examination?

You have a total time of 75 minutes available for the A2 C of C Theory Examination. This time is set by the CAA (and not by UAVHub). We find that the average time it takes people to complete the Exam is generally 10-15 minutes though, thanks to the way we teach and then allow you to practice, using our Mock Exam System! :)  

  • Is there a lot of reading?

Not at all! Unlike other training providers, we don't just present you with reams of PDFs or hundreds of slides to work through. Our system is mostly video based learning so you can just sit back and take notes. If you do need something to read, we have a comprehensive Aide Memoir for you to download which you are more than welcome to print out.
