Remote Pilot Licence Training Course - RePL

Unlike other training schools, we are real drone pilots with real-world experience. We can guide you from knowing nothing about the industry, certifying you, becoming a Chief Remote Pilot and even starting your own company. We can do this because we did it ourselves. We know how the industry works and we want to share it with you.

Our students generally complete the online component in 7 days with our online learning platform, combined with a full-day practical training and assessment. Our courses and packages are able to be financed interest-free, just choose ZipMoney or Openpay at checkout. Contact us for lay-by.

SPEAK TO AN EXPERT DRONE PILOT

If you want to know more our team of drone career experts are ready to take your call and answer your questions.

Start your career as a professional drone pilot

The RePL course offers online theory modules through videos, manuals, access to additional resources and quizzes in easy to follow modules which can be completed in your own time.

Upon completion of your online theory, a practical assessment day can be booked in your nearest capital city in order to complete your final exam and practical flight assessment.

Once the assessment is complete, the team at Droneit Training will complete the paperwork in order for CASA to issue you RePL Certificate which takes approximately two weeks to be processed. Completion of the RePL course will allow you to fly any multi-rotor <7KG, get insured and give you access to further exemptions and the ability to fly in restricted airspaces.

In order to fly commercially you will still require your business/company to hold a CASA issued RPA Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) or another option is to fly under Droneit ReOC through our Fly With Us program. Droneit can assist with what option is best for your needs.
