At the end of this course, you will be asked to take an exam covering all of the information presented. You must achieve a score of 80% or better to pass this exam.

In addition to this exam you will be required to complete a practical flight assessment refresher with a certified RPAS Flight Examiner. The Flight Examiner will ask a number of oral questions during the practical assessment to test your understanding of the content included in this course.

Lesson 10 will refresh you on the skills you are required to demonstrate during your practical flight assessment.
