Drone Safety Certificates

To ensure members have a suitable understanding of drone safety, guidelines and legislation Drone Cover Club have teamed up with training experts The Aerial Academy to provide free online Drone Safety certificates.

We require all members to complete the relevant Drone Safety Certificate before insurance benefits become valid. Public Liability and Personal Accident insurances are valid for all Drone Cover Club members who have successfully completed the DCC Basic Drone Safety Certificate. All members adding the optional Accidental Damage cover to their membership must successfully complete the DCC Advanced Drone Safety Certificate to validate the insurance.

Both DCC Safety Certificates are provided to members, free of charge, via an online link and password supplied to the member immediately after signing up. The link can be found in the DCC welcome email or accessed from within DCC Member Area. Once the test has been successfully completed DCC aims to confirm the validity of cover within 1 working day and pass information will be recorded in the DCC Member Area.

Where a Member has a prior qualification, provided by a CAA recognised NQE and demonstrating equal or greater subject knowledge (e.g. PfCO), proof of qualification must be received and accepted in writing by the DCC administration team to validate insurance benefits.
