The UAB School of Risk Prevention and Occupational Safety has led the way in Spain in university teaching in the field of drones, and is now offering training that consolidates the role of technology in matters of safety and emergencies, and which, moreover, includes professional accreditation as a drone pilot and operator to act as a specialist service provider recognised by the Spanish Air Safety Agency (AESA).

The programme includes a set of tools that allows managers of risk, safety and emergencies to learn about current legislation and the legal framework for operating, and to use technology to minimise the use of resources and reduce the personal risks taken by firefighters, public and private security officers, forestry protection associations, civil protection, etc. 

  • Students can take the whole course or only the module Safety and Emergencies (with prior accreditation)
  • Financial support through Fundación Tripartita (FUNDAE)
  • Course with merit points in public-sector selection processes
