Australia's Leading UAV, RPA and Drone Training Course Selection

To start a serious Drone business, or to add Drones to your existing business, it is highly recommended that you obtain your RePL (Remotely piloted aircraft pilots licence) issued by CASA, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. While it may be possible to operate a very small Drone in some circumstances without any licences, any serious business will be far better off by using licensed pilots and having a certified operation. Total RPA will get you started by providing you with all the training and industry know-how. Wherever you are in Australia, we can help your business get airborne!
