Volatus Supports Lifelong Learning with New RPAS Diploma
Accredited RPAS Technical Diploma Starts in September 2021
Canadian Businesses Need Professional RPAS Operators. In cooperation with the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning, Volatus RPAS Training Academy is launching its technical diploma in professional RPAS operations. Students will become proficient in RPAS regulations, fundamentals, photography & videography, inspections, and mapping. We will focus on building the technical skills needed for a successful career in this fast-growing industry. It will also prepare students for Beyond-Visual-Line-Of-Sight (BVLOS) operations, should they wish to join the next generation of RPAS.
The course will initially launch in September 2021, running for four weeks, at the Volatus RPAS Training Academy in Slemon Park, Prince Edward Island. The spacious hangar facility allows students to fly regardless of weather conditions. Volatus is the largest distributor of UAV technology in Canada, with a wealth of hardware assets, allowing students to get hands-on experience with the latest technology.
Their student to instructor ratio is 4:1, guaranteeing that each student receives focused and personal instruction as they build their skills. Volatus uses NIST to teach and evaluate practical skills. Each qualifying student will receive a Technical Diploma and a Certificate of Completion, in addition to their Transport Canada ADVANCED RPAS Pilot Certificate.
The availability of government funding, subject to eligibility, will help re-train the workforce and support economic growth in PEI. Volatus is working to support RPAS accredited training across all regions of North America.
Volatus works with Transport Canada and the FAA to future-proof RPAS regulations. As a result of their work with regulators, they are competent providers of North American RPAS Operations training standards of excellence in skills and expertise. Students are continually assessed throughout Volatus training programs and provided with feedback, along with a series of short multi-choice exams to test their regulatory and operational knowledge.
