Within 5 years of obtaining a RPAS (drone) pilot certificate, and in any case within 12 months of the expiry date of a certificate, pilots must attend a theoretical refreshment course at an RPAS Training Centre.
The theory course is structured in accordance with current legislation and includes lessons on aviation law. It has a total duration of 4 hours.
Following the theory part, candidates who have carried out at least three separate flights with the RPA in the 90 preceding days must pass a proficiency check with an RPA examiner on at least one of the ratings held. The check consists of a mission lasting at least 10 minutes.
