PDRL Certified Drone Professional (PCDP)
This course is designed to meet the needs of beginners in the field of drone technology as well as those who are keen on maintaining themselves updated with the recent trends of the technology. Also, the course aims to identify and fulfill the needs of industries in the field of drone technology for a safe flight of a drone. This course will provide knowledge of the concept, and construction of drones along with the technology used, and the rules and regulations to follow. Only the knowledge of hardware is not sufficient to fly a drone. The pilot should be well conversant with any GCS software like AeroGCS.
For a beginner, we hope that it will whet their appetite for learning more about at least one of the technology fields and demonstrate the importance of even the most basic mathematical treatment of these subjects in permitting an understanding of the tradeoffs that must occur during the system design process. We hope that it will create an awareness of how system technology affects the accomplishment of objectives of UAVs and the tactics that the operator must use to make that happen for a UAV user or operator.
This course will add a cherry to his career. As there is a huge demand for drones in various applications, the need for a well-trained pilot will also be increased. We hope that through this course, we will be able to serve our country by producing well-trained pilots.
