Our A2 Certificate of Competency Course is a one-day course which allows commercial operations to be undertaken, within certain parameters, using specific types of drones. Depending on the type of drone you operate (generally the weight of the drone but other factors also apply) you are able to operate over uninvolved persons and/or within 50m horizontally.

The specific types of drone you can fly must have a UK product/class rating which is all explained in the course. These product ratings are not expected on mainstream drones for sometime but all drones must have them by 1 Jan 2026. In the interim you are allowed to use current drones under a transitional arrangement which allows:

  • Drones under 500g to be operated very close to people
  • Drones under 2kg to be operated near to people down to a horizontal distance of 50m

f you wish to know more about the benefits of the A2 Certificate of Competence then feel free to email or call to discuss your business model and we will be more than happy to advise.  Alternatively please feel free to read through our blog on drone regulations. In many cases, the GVC course is the more suited course for commercial operators.
