    Have you tried the FAA website? That is where most people start.

    If your just flying a small ordinary drone that you can buy at bestbuy.. you dont even need a license (with certain rules being followed).. just fyi.
    the UAS cert is for commercial ops ($$$) OR just an extra cert to have in your pocket.

    good luck.

    FAAST site has an online training for part 107 for existing pilots that can be used to get a CFI sign off in IACRA.

    If you're already a Part 61 pilot there is a shortcut for certification. Goto FAASafety.gov and take the course ALC-451. Takes about an hour and a half and there's a 35-question quiz at the end.

    If you aren't a pilot of manned aircraft, goto www.UAVGroundSchool.com

    Our school offers a UAS course if your getting the cert or want some training.

    Besides that if you already hold a cert go to the FAAST site and take the 30 min drone course. Then fill out a 8713 and have a CFI friend sign it for a beer.
