At this time we are offering this certification to CDPS employees, public safety agencies, and volunteers sponsored by a public safety agency.
Please choose a course according to your flight experience level.
All courses require an FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot in Command (RPIC) Certificate. If you do not have your Part 107 RPIC, you may still take the certification test, but no certification will be issued untill you provide us with your 107 RPIC Number.
More courses will be scheduled in the future - check back. If you have a group of pilots to certify, contact Garrett Seddon
The course will be conducted at 375 County Road 352, Building 2060 Rifle, CO 81650.
