Drone Club (Certificate III in Aviation)

Certificate III in Aviation – Remote Pilot Visual Line of Sight provides the training and skills necessary to become a licensed drone pilot. The School will run the program as an after-school activity to be held once a week (day to be confirmed) from 3.30pm to 5.30pm and will be offered to students in Years 10 and 11 (2022). It is anticipated students will complete the training within 12 months. Training will be completed by an external Registered Training Organisation, overseen by Toowoomba Grammar School staff. Apart from gaining highly sought-after skills in an identified growth industry, students would also earn 6 credits towards his QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education). All students in the Senior Phase of learning are working towards their QCE; which requires 20 credits, some of which must come from their core studies and some which can come from recognised studies such as this one. Training costs for the Certificate III Aviation are covered by the Queensland Government through VETis funding (Vocational Education and Training in Schools), students are able to receive the program at no cost. It is important to check with Careers staff regarding VETis Funding and other programs students may be interested in.
