Yorkshire-based TA Aerial has announced its new training scheme for agricultural drone users.
The company has designed a BASIS-accredited online training course for drone operators looking to work within the farming and agriculture sector.
BASIS is a UK agriculture training, certification, auditing and standard-setting body with a UAS Professional Register of drone services.
TA Aerial’s new ‘Agricultural Awareness for UAS Operators’ course covers farming and farming practices in the UK, crop production, livestock management, health and safety and opportunities for Commercial UAS operators to work in agriculture.
On completing the course and an online multiple-choice exam, participants will be added to the BASIS UAS Professional Register, the only register of Agricultural Drone Operators in the UK.
The course is open to everyone with a valid Permission for Commercial Operations (PFCo) issued by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
The £360 fee covers the course, exam costs and one year’s membership of the BASIS UAS Professional Register.
