The FAA Remote Pilot Certificate has a 24-month shelf life—which means that drone pilots need to go through a recurrent knowledge training and testing process every two years to re-up and to maintain their stature as a commercially certificated sUAS operator.
Starting March 16th, 2021, drone pilots who are already certified no longer need to take an in-person recurrent exam at a PSI test center.
You still have to demonstrate currency every 24 months, but it will now be through a free online training course from the FAA.
This training will be released on March 16th, and we will be updating this page with the training link and more information about the process.
