UK Commercial Drone Experts, COPTRZ are providing free Drone Training courses for personnel within the Emergency Services throughout the Coronavirus crisis.
Access to the COPTRZ online training portal, COPTRZ ACADEMY, will be free to workers within the Emergency Services. This includes all aspects of the CAA accredited PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations) course qualification that can be completed remotely.
This continual learning platform enables Emergency Services professionals to continually develop and grow within a cloud-based ecosystem. Each week new resources including masterclasses, webinars and live videos will be delivered to academy members by industry experts from around the world.
Drones are already playing an integral part of the fight against the Covid-19 outbreak around the world, providing vital non-contact services such as inspection and dispersion of crowds, public broadcasting and the supply and delivery of vital equipment and materials.
Testing has also begun by some suppliers for wider drone uses within virus outbreak prevention solutions, such as body temperature measurement and spraying disinfectant.
Sam Denniff, COPTRZ UAV Strategist for Public Safety said “We want to support our Emergency Services in any way possible during these challenging times. Whether it’s increasing the capability of a current UAV team, or creating a team for the first time, we see it as essential that the Emergency Services are utilising the available drone technology for public safety, health, and order. Further to our ability to provide remote training, this is another step that COPTRZ are taking to make it easier for them to do so.”
