TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Postponed Classes Due to COVID-19 Policy
Given the unprecedented circumstances, our team is constantly assessing the situation and making determinations regarding postponed classes. If your in-person class was postponed, we will announce makeup dates once groups are allowed to meet again. We will contact you as soon as we have confirmation. We are not currently issuing refunds for postponed courses; however, if we are forced to cancel the training and cannot provide a make-up date, a full refund will be provided.
Part 107 Test Prep Course – 2-Day In-Person: If you cancel within 24 hours of purchase, the full amount will be refunded, as long as the course has not yet occurred. You can reschedule for a different date with no charge up to 14 days prior to the course. If you must reschedule and there are less than 14 days until the course, a $100 processing fee will be required.
“No Show” Policy
In-Person: You will be unable to re-schedule or receive any kind of refund if you do not show up to a class without prior notice.
Any refunds issued that are issued may take 3-5 days to reach your account depending on the policies of your financial institution. Students will not be eligible for any refund after attending a course. Instructors will take attendance in each course. Students acknowledge that by attending any portion of a course, they have taken the spot of another eligible student. It is the responsibility of each student to thoroughly read all course descriptions and policies on www.soliduavs.com and in any other communications. Students cannot claim a course was “Not as Described” with their financial institution and must resolve any unsatisfactory experiences with the SOLID UAVS LLC Team. If you receive a free or discounted course as a part of promotion or package and later cancel part of the package, we will subtract the free courses from your refund.
Part 107 “Money Back Guarantee” Eligibility
If a student completes our Part 107 Test Prep – 2-Day In-Person course and achieves an 85% or better on at least 3 Unmanned Aircraft (UAG) practice exams via the Aviation Supplies & Academics, Inc. (ASA) Prepware Remote Pilot software and still fails the FAA Part 107 Exam, we will pay the retest fee for the student to take the exam again. The test results of these 3 Unmanned Aircraft (UAG) practice exams must be submitted through the ASA Prepware Remote Pilot software. To submit these test results in the ASA Prepware Remote Pilot software, click Performance > Request Endorsement > Select the 3 tests indicating 85% or better > Enter Student Name > Enter Student Email > Change Recipient Email to firstname.lastname@example.org > Leave the Mailing Address fields empty > Clear any comments in the Memo field > Click Send Email. All students who took the Part 107 Test Prep – 2-Day In-Person course must have taken the exam within the 90 days of their class date to be eligible. FAA exam questions are not published. The ASA and SOLID UAVS LLC question bank is closely aligned to what you will see on the FAA remote pilot exam, but wording can and will differ. Memorizing the entire ASA and SOLID UAVS LLC question bank will not be sufficient preparation to pass the exam. Students who take the practice test an excessive number of times with unreasonably short completion times will not qualify for the guarantee. Students are only eligible to receive the Money Back Guarantee once. Students must submit their failing test scorecard to the SOLID UAVS LLC support team for review.
Class Material Policy
We are in no way responsible for any future change in FAA’s regulations or any new products drone manufacturers’ and software providers put out in the market. Our classes are focused on current regulations and products in the market AT THE TIME OF THE CLASS ONLY.
SOLID UAVS LLC in no way takes any responsibility for errors or omissions in our content or curriculum. The operator is ultimately responsible for understanding all rules and regulations and abiding to those rules. Our course curriculum must not be considered legal advice, and in no way do the instructors’ opinions reflect the opinions of the FAA.
SOLID UAVS LLC will not copy or distribute our teaching slides, however, students will be given various supplementary learning materials and guides upon taking the course.
The FAA is the only entity in the United States that can grant pilot certification. Any certificate provided by SOLID UAVS LLC is strictly a Certificate of Completion indicating a student has been delivered the related content by participating in a particular course or set of courses. This in no way grants the holder any legal or official license or certification. Students are responsible for taking the necessary steps to earn their Remote Pilot Certificate under Part 107. Eligibility for a Remote Pilot Certificate is determined by several factors set forth by the FAA including but not limited to the successful completion of the Airman Knowledge Exam, a TSA background check, age, and physical and/or mental condition. SOLID UAVS LLC is not responsible for vetting a student’s eligibility.
