Delta Drone International will become the first organisation to provide specialised Remote Pilot License (RPL/ RePL) drone courses in Africa in conjunction with the University of Pretoria.
Drone Safety & Legal, an accredited training subsidiary of Delta Drone International, has designed the RPL course specifically to support the mining, agriculture and engineering sectors, with, DSL trainers providing the practical, safety and licencing instruction, while University of Pretoria lecturers will provide the related theory.
Delta Drone International CEO, Christopher Clark, said this partnership with University of Pretoria, one of the largest universities in Africa, is significant for the drone industry. He is thrilled the Company continues to set the international standard in advanced training for the essential drone services that support these sectors.
“At Delta Drone International we strive to provide the best drone services to the highest operational, compliance and safety standards. With our expertise across both drone and software development, we were in a unique position to partner with the University of Pretoria to create these drone-specific courses, that not only accredit students with a RPL drone license, but also allow them to receive specific application training, from world-leading lecturers, in the mining, agriculture and engineering sectors.
“Drone data services are increasingly becoming an integral part of the agriculture, mining and engineering sectors, in creating much faster & credible data analysis. Using our expertise in the areas of aerial surveying and mapping, industrial inspections and precision farming, we look forward to contributing to the long-term career paths of drone pilots within these sectors.”
