FAQs

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The ELCAS scheme is designed to promote lifelong learning amongst members of the Armed Forces with training that will enhance their current or future career. This assistance is in the form of an annual payment in up to three individual years. All training courses must be delivered by an Approved Learning Provider and result in an award of a nationally recognised qualification on the Qualification and Credit Framework (England and Wales).

COPTRZ Training Provider Number is 10710 – Coptrz LTD.

The use of drones or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) requires a particular skillset which armed forces personnel are particularly suited to. As well as following established protocols and assessing risk for each and every mission, familiarity with drone hardware and the ability to assume personal responsibility every time you fly are prerequisites for a successful drone pilot.

All serving and leaving personnel are automatically enrolled for Enhanced Learning Credits. The value of these credits depends on the length of your time in service, and the maximum number of credits you can earn is three. There are two distinct tiers for ELC funding, which depend on the length of your service. Enhanced Learning Credits on the lower tier will be worth £1,000 per year for individual scheme members who have completed not less than six years of eligible service, while the upper tier will be worth £2,000 per year for individuals who have completed eight or more years’ service. Only service accumulated since 1st April 2000, may be counted as eligible service for the purpose of the ELC Scheme.

Many members of the Armed Forces begin planning their post-military career a number of years prior to leaving the military, so even if you aren’t planning on leaving just yet, it’s a good idea to start finding out more about ELCAS and what a career in the commercial drone industry could mean for you. Our admissions team can advise on the training and career opportunities using drones within many industry verticals, and how you can best take advantage of these.
