Drone pilot certificate for international students

Recommended Posts

Can an international student enrol in the drone pilot online course and will the certificate be sent to me?

Thanks in advance for your response.

Until Alan gets a chance to respond, let me ask a few questions here.  I'm assuming that you mean an international student studying in the USA.  And by the certificate, I assume you mean a certificate of completion of the course.  Then what?  To fly commercially, you would then need to go on to take the FAA Part 107 exam.  Am I correct here ?

No, I'm currently in Nigeria. Yes, I mean a certificate of completion of the course. Can I also take the FAA part 107 exams online and will the certificate be sent to me?

Alan will have to answer the question about the course and the completion certificate.  However, it is not possible to take the Part 107 exam online UNLESS you currently hold an FAA Certificate for manned a/c and you are current re that.  The Part 107 exam is given only at approved FAA testing centers here in the US and a few US territories.  No way around that.
