An introduction to this course

a door welcome mat

Welcome to The Institute for Drone Technology.

This is an additional video, hosted on YouTube.

One of our key roles in the industry is to help organisations integrate drone technology. The key benefits of drone technology are an increase in safety, an increase in efficiency, and the opportunity for real innovation. Drone technology is revolutionising practices in a number of industries, but in order for the advantages to be realised it is essential that integration is undertaken in a safe and managed manner.

That’s exactly what we help you do.

We are a CASA (Cival Aviation and Safety Authority) accredited Training Provider, as well as an Australian Registered Training Organisation (No. 45181). Our focus is on providing world-leading services in consulting, training, and platform management. We hope you enjoy this course.
