Flying Drones Commercially?
Unsure of what Qualifications you need?
In Australia under CASA regulations,Remote Pilot License (RPL) is needed to operate Drones / Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) above 2kg commercially.  If under 2kg, you don't require a licence but you must register your drone with CASA and abide by CASA Standard operating procedures when operating your Drone.  
After getting your RPL, you may need to complete UAV Manufacturer's Training which qualifies you to operate your specific Drone depending on your Drone's Model and your requirements (e.g.. DJI Matrice 600 Training, DJI Inspire Training, DJI Phantom Training).
Once your RPL and UAV Manufacturer's training is completed, you can now fly for a certified company.  If you are starting your own business, you will need a CASA Remote Pilot Aircraft Operator's Certificate (OC) which allows your business to fly drones for commercial gain.
Rise Above offers the following programs through our Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) accredited Industry Partner to both prepare and qualify you to become an effective commercial drone operator in Australia under your own or another person's business. 
Corporate Training Packages are also available as well as further discounts for booking Courses and Certification together i.e. CASA Remote Pilot Licence + CASA Remote Pilot Aircraft Operator's Certificate + Sub-25kg UAV Type Manufacturer's Training
