Droneakademiet can offer courses locally at your location, but perhaps even better is to take the course with us in Sykkylven or Drammen. Why not make a trip out of it?

A break from everyday life in new surroundings provides space for fresh thinking in the big picture. A holistic experience with added value often provides new motivation and is more likely to be remembered for a longer time. Participating in scheduled courses can also provide an opportunity to expand your network and meet professionals from other industries. Maybe you'll come away with ideas for more drone applications? The stay can cover the course days alone, or you can take the opportunity for an extended company trip with more experiences. Surrounded by fjords and mountains, there are many possibilities for a memorable stay. With renewed drive after a drone course, the conditions are well set for a mood-filled trip that will be long remembered.
