This course provides learners with the fundamental requirements of operating drones efficiently and safely and provides an in-depth introduction to using drones to create 3D models and digital twins
CAA, A2 Certificate of Competency
Who should attend
Construction managers, building surveyors, and construction professionals keen to learn new skills using drone technology.
The remote learning ground school covers everything you need to know about operating your drone safely and within the rules. You will receive access to our industry-leading e-learning platform and will have access to our ongoing support offering.
The A2 subcategory will allow you to fly confidently in open spaces and fly closer to people and structures.
Using drones to survey buildings and create digital twins.
Drones can collect complete, reliable, and well-organised baseline datasets to flow into the complex and layered process of building a digital twin.
This exciting method of combining the physical world with the digital and is helping to improve business processes, reduce risk, optimise operational efficiency, and enhance decision-making.
Data is currency when it comes to building digital twins. These ‘living’ and constantly evolving models need to have a high level of validity, and up-to-date data is crucial to this.
Drones have a role to play here, as they provide an effective data capture tool, collecting highly accurate information safely and efficiently. This is especially important for hard-to-reach assets or in environments where asset downtime must be kept to the absolute minimum.
