Do certificates have a validity period?
Yes. UTC Unmanned Aircraft Operator Certificates are effective for two years. When your certificate is about to expire, UTC will consider the advancement of technology and changes in laws and regulations and decide you should be retrained or take updated exams to renew your certificate. If only an exam is required, students just need to pay related fees and pass the exam to renew.
What should I do if I fail the exam?
The exam consists of a written and operation test. Failing either will require a make-up exam. Make-up fees are subject to local standards. Students can pay the fee and take make-up exams immediately after failing. Make-up exams will be arranged after the normal exams of the day or postponed to be taken along with other students, depending on the local campus’s practices. A student cannot fail the exam more than three times. Otherwise, the student will have to sign up for the course and pay tuition again.
