About this course
This course awards the A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC)
The A2 CofC
The A2 Certificate of Competence (A2 CofC) is a way to provide greater freedoms to drone pilots of lightweight drones who complete some introductory training. It consists of three study modules, completed online, followed by a formal exam taken under exam conditions. The average time to complete the A2 course can range between 1 and 3 days, depending on the student.
In June 2022 the CAA announced that the original "transitional" period for flying what the CAA calls "legacy drones" in the A2 sub-category has now been extended indefinitely. This was due to end on the 31st December 2022, and would have meant that all drones currently owned or on sale would no longer be able to be flown with an A2 CofC with reduced separation distances.
With this latest change, you can now fly in the A2 sub-category and keep your existing drone! This is fantastic news for holders of the A2 CofC and for the UK industry as a whole. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
I’ve just completed my A2 CofC with AV8 and highly recommend this company.
Well structured course. Great to be able to take the practice questions many times.I passed first time!
Great course, excellent support and a very helpful and friendly approach. Highly recommended.
