Higher Education & Research Courses

SalusUAV has successfully designed and run PfCO based courses for Universities wanting to provide a differentiator to their students. The course can be modified and run to suit the individual college’s requirements, either to complement the existing course or to qualify the students and/or the college with PfCO certification. These courses are particularly suited to supplement students studying Agricultural Management, Architecture, Building services, Events and Facilities Management, Photography and Film, Television Production, Wildlife Conservation, Civil Engineering, Construction Management.

After taking a SalusUAV course, the University of Bath students went on to make a clean sweep at the prestigious IMechE UAS Challenge. Sponsors QinetiQ were particularly impressed with Bath’s operational standards  and use of checklists (see above).
