Inspection with drones


A specialization module is best followed in combination with a PRO XL module (or if you already have proof of Specific).


Inspections will undoubtedly become a major pillar of the drone industry. As such, the possibilities are as good as endless. Think of inspections of solar panels, bridges, churches, windmills, high-voltage pylons, monuments, silos, chimneys, arenas, roof inspections, etc.

Why should you take this course

There are already a lot of people who take pictures and make videos with drones. But everything that has to do with drone inspection is in its infancy. The market is huge. A lot of applications in the industry will be able to use drones. The strength of this course is that you will get a broad picture of different possibilities and effectively test them hands-on in a realistic flight session. This then immediately shows you how to approach such a mission. Skills: this course covers the following safety skills. The students who follow it in combination with a PRO XL module can take the corresponding assessments (exams) (first attempt included in the price):
  • Theoretical training modules:
    • Flight close to objects and buildings
    • Flight close to interference sources
  • Practical training modules Multirotor:
    • Flight close to objects and buildings
    • Flight close to interference sources

Target audience

Surveyors, drone pilots, scientists, roofers, petrochemical, industry, terminals, building inspections, inspections, public safety, R&D, archaeologists, engineers, defense, demining services, real estate, construction and building, energy producers, historic preservation, cultural heritage, etc…
