As the Accountable Manager for Cheshire Constabulary it was really important to select the right training provider to train police officers how to safely operator a UAS. We selected RUSTA due to their professional approach to the training and came highly recommended. Sion and his team at RUSTA was fantastic from the very start to the end. They provided easy to understand pre-course material which was further explained in the two day theory training – this equip myself and staff with all the skills to safely plan a UAS deployment.
Sion was able to answer any questions that myself or team had and was extremely professional and with his service in the RAF very qualified to deliver the training package in a way that we could understand having no previous knowledge on the subject. Sion friendly approach aided myself and team to get to grasps with the handing of the UAS on the practical flight training and he promoted learning and developing as a team. Quite rightly RUSTA will put a lot of emphasis on safety and in any UAS operations this is critical. RUSTA was able to get myself and team to a level that could sit the exams and passed (first time) obtaining our qualifications to apply for a PfCO with the CAA.
For me, there is no question that I will be inviting RUSTA back to train further police officers. This is a fanatic course with a fantastic training provider; and on behalf of myself and team we would like to Thank Sion and RUSTA !
