A Certificate Program Designed for the Professional Remote Pilot.
USI's Small UAS Safety Certification revolves around four major themes derived from lessons-learned in traditional aviation. The program consists of four online courses, which cover the following key themes in sequence in order to build the learners competency in the field of UAS aviation Safety.
Our students come from all over the world and are united by a common goal: to promote flight safety and professionalism through continuous learning. The Institute offers the Small UAS Safety Certification to qualified individuals who possess the following:

Upon my first week with Trihydro, I revised all of the SOPs and checklists to emphasis the importance of safety. Without USI’s safety training I would not have had the knowledge or background to provide changes to these documents..."
