This is the first solar industry certificate related to drone flying. To earn the certificate, participants must attend all four sessions, pass the Scanifly short exam and pass the FAA Part 107 exam. By attending and completing all four sessions, participants are also eligible for four hours: NABCEP Credits for Continuing Education.
