    The Remote Pilot Certificate of Competency - Basic (RCoC-B) satisfies the requirements within the Specific category (medium risk category).

    • Agriculture
    • Flying the drone above 400ft
    • Flying Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS)
    • Pre-Defined Risk Assessment (PDRA)
    • Standard Scenario (STS)
    • Visual Line of Sight (VLOS)

    The Remote Pilot Certificate of Competency Extended Visual Line of Sight Module 1 (RCoC (EVLOS) Module 1) is an additional module which enables Extended Visual Line of Sight operations. The prerequisite for attending Module 1 is RCoC-B which will imply that all Remote Pilots are required to be competent on RCoC-B before attending the Module 1 course.
