Do I Need RePL Training?

UAV Training Australia offers a comprehensive Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) course from our Brisbane training grounds. Our RePL training course contains all the skills and knowledge drone operators need to obtain their RePL certification and begin operating drones on a commercial or professional basis. Anyone who wants to use drones for work purposes is required to hold a remote pilot licence and adhere to the Standard Operating Conditions laid out by CASA.

You don’t need to obtain a licence if you fly drones for leisure or other private purposes. Likewise, Sub 2kg aircraft are an Excluded Category and you won’t need a licence to operate one commercially either. While recreational pilots aren’t required to hold a remote pilot licence, taking a course is a good way to get started as a drone pilot and gain experience with a range of platforms. If you are an amateur pilot or a professional who wants to operate a Sub 2kg aircraft then our Introduction to Drones course is a good alternative to our full RePL course.

We have a genuine passion for training the next generation of drone pilots. To help further the industry and upskill future drone operators, we make it as easy as possible to participate in our course. The practical component of our training is provided by experienced instructors at our Brisbane location. Led by Chief Pilot Wayne Condon, our practical training provides in-depth experience with a variety of drone platforms that are often used by employers.

The theoretical component of our course is available as face-to-face classes or through our online portal. We’ve designed our dedicated student portal to give participants better access to their important documentation and training materials. This portal also allows students to attend online RePL training courses from the comfort of their own home. For those who would rather complete the theoretical component of the course online, our student portal makes it easy.

Australia’s drone industry is regulated by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to ensure professional RPA pilots comply with industry standards. UAV Training Australia maintains a close working relationship with CASA. This means we’re able to provide relevant remote pilot licence training courses and deliver the core competencies required for the safe operation of commercial-grade drones. 

UAV Training Australia is a CASA approved Training Organisation, and we maintain a Remote Operators Certificate (ReOC.0872). Our ReOC allows us to issue students with their remote pilot licence and other RePL endorsements when they successfully complete our courses.

Our CASA approved RePL course is suitable for professionals at all stages of their careers. With courses providing both Sub 7kg and Sub 25kg RePL endorsements, our team is able to offer experience on a wide range of platforms and help our students build skills that are valued by employers.

The rapid development of drone technology means that skilled operators are quickly becoming some of Australia’s most in-demand professionals. With applications in a range of industries, including forestry, surveying, mining, agriculture and more, drone pilots have access to a world of career opportunities. If you’d like to get started with piloting drones, obtaining your remote pilot licence is the best place to start. Our courses provide you with the theoretical and practical training you need to safely operate commercial-grade drone platforms.

UAV Training Australia helps students expand their career prospects. Whether you are just starting out, need to refresh your skills or simply want to earn new endorsements, we can help. Our training has been designed with industry newcomers in mind. We make sure each participant has the support of our experienced instructors throughout. That means you will be able to get more from our course to build skills that are valued by real-world employers.

Thanks to UAV Training Australia I have just secured a full time position with Ultramag Geophysics as a Matrice 600 operator!

I’m looking forward to the hours and the experience that I will continue to gain with the M600 and payload out in the bush.

The two practical days were really enjoyable and very informative, I learned a lot and gained some great skills and additional confidence.

Thanks for your hard work putting together the practical component of the course for us!!

The trainers Michael and Wayne were professional and polite from 1st phone call to the end of the course.  I would DEFINITELY recommend UAV Training Australia to ANYONE looking to get their RePL and AROC.

I just finished my Remote Pilots Course and the instructors were the most professional and knowledgeable instructors I have had the pleasure to be instructed by in many years. Theory was so informative and their flying of UAV’s was amazing, skill that would be unchallenged.

Thank you for dedication towards my tuition. Best course ever, I learnt heaps! 

A great crew to learn from, excellent experience learning about the industry & gaining a licence!
