The Coptrz GVC Conversion Course has been tailored for those who have already obtained their PfCO qualification, and are looking to convert it to a GVC under the new EU regulations.

Operators that convert their PfCO into a GVC will then be able to apply to the CAA for an operational authorisation. This replaces the PfCO as part from 31st December 2020.

All operators that currently hold a PfCO must convert via the GVC Conversion Course before January 1st 2024.

For a limited time only, we are offering our Coptrz PfCO to GVC conversion course to UK emergency services for just £147 per person excl. VAT.

Offer applies to forces or organisations looking to convert a minimum of three qualifications over.

Form submissions must be completed with a work email address.

“Adopting drone technology can be difficult, especially in an industry with little-to-no information on how to get the best return on investment.

Having worked alongside organisations such as Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue, Cambridgeshire Police and Kent Search & Rescue I’m sure that I can get you up, operational, and see the benefits of drone technology” – Danny Wilson P:07908262799
