Information for certified training providers
To facilitate continued operation of the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have deferred for six months some provisions in the Part 101 Manual of Standards relating to training courses. Read the full details of the amendment instrument and what it means.

To provide remote pilot licence (RePL) training, you'll need to hold a remotely piloted aircraft operator's certificate (ReOC) that specifically authorises pilot training.
Depending on the training approvals you have, you may be able to offer training for a range of remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) or drone types including:
- single and multi-rotor
- powered lift RPA.
CASA approved training organisations are located across Australia in both regional and metropolitan areas.
We will also recognise practical training courses offered by drone manufacturers and their agents, if they were completed before June 2017.
Chief Remote Pilots can lodge applications for RePLs online, once their students have completed the required training. Find out how to submit applications online.
Details of the training requirements can be found in the Part 101 Manual of Standards (MOS). Changes include:
- a new RePL training course syllabus, including aeronautical knowledge and practical flying components. This will include examination, flight testing and licence upgrade requirements (details in MOS Chapter 2)
- additional administrative requirements for RePL training courses by certified training providers (details in MOS Chapter 2).
Changes to the qualifications and experience requirements for RePL training instructors will also be introduced from 10 October 2020. Details can be found in MOS Division 2.7.
We have developed guidance material to help you transition to the new rules for certified training providers, including advisory circulars and updated templates.
