    If you already have an NQE Recommendation Certificate and/or a PfCO, we have an option to convert over to an RAE Recommendation Certificate with a GVC.

    This will allow you to get an Operational Authorisation (OA) after 1st July 2020 with GVC Permissions. This will also allow you to get more permissions with additional 'Bolt-ons'* such as EVLOS and BVLOS.

    Simply select a date to take your Theory Examination and ensure you complete all of the pre-requisite E-Learning modules prior to attending your 1 Day Course which ends with your 40 Question Examination.

    All of our GVC E-Learning is taught by industry expert and UAVHUB CEO Matt Williams (Mr MPW) who will guide you through the learning process that will ultimately lead to you becoming a certified drone operator in the Specific Category/

    When you have completed your Theory Exam, you simply need to book your Practical Examination (Operational Evaluation) at our Oxfordshire or North-Staffordshire Training Field and this will take up to 2 hours to complete. 

    The final part of the ICARUS GVC course is focused on the Operations Manual. You'll be sent a list of questions to complete detailing your planned operations, the answers to these questions are then used to create an operations manual bespoke unique to you - The manual is usually delivered within 5 working days.
