An online training course for Drone controllers is prepared in compliance with the provisions of the Project FlyVETUp! - Innovative Training Curricula for Drone Controllers which is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The project’s objective is the realization of training material for the use of Drones or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) on parcel delivery. By taking part in this project, the employees of the postal operators (postmen and others) will learn how to operate drones.  

Over the past few years, commercial applications of drone technology and its growing impact have grown significantly. Drone technology can no longer be ignored. Drones are piloted by remote control or onboard computers through a combination of computer vision, artificial intelligence and object avoidance technology. While some jobs may be made obsolete by drone technology, more jobs will be created to man the drones and ensure an efficient system in the delivery of services for various industries. Postal operators also realize the benefits of drone deliveries in their everyday business and various possibilities of using a drone in the delivery of letters and parcels.   

The objective of the training programme is to enable the participants to achieve the maximum level of assimilation of concepts, terminology and model regulatory framework for UAS operations and application by going through modules:  

  1. Module 1 - Core Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) 

  1. Module 2 - Intro to the Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) 

After completion of the Units within the two Modules, participants will issue Certificates of the completion of the Online training.
