Course Procedures

Course is delivered online through lecture videos and quizzes split into units by topic. Each unit is split into sections and each section includes presentation slides in PDF format, a lecture video and a quiz. To complete the course, you must take and pass the Certification Exam, which is administered by a proctor the Course Instructors have approved.

Each lecture video ranges from 5 minutes–30 minutes and varies by module and topic. You may complete each module at your own pace, but the course must be completed in 60 days to take the Certification Exam. Approximate time to complete course is 30–40 hours.

Course Materials

You will be provided with a copy of the presentation slides used in the lecture videos and an electronic copy of the MTM-UAS manual.


Each section includes a quiz ranging from 2–5 questions. The quizzes are not graded and will not affect your overall score in the course. The quizzes are meant to test your understanding of the unit material. After completing a quiz, you will see which questions were correct and incorrect and can take the quiz as many times as you need.

After completing the course units, you will take two review quizzes and a comprehensive Practice Examination.  These quizzes and Practice Examination are automatically scored and are meant to prepare you for the final exam.  Once you’ve achieved a passing score on the review quizzes and Practice Examination and feel you are ready, you can have the MTM-UAS Certification Proctored Exam sent to a proctor, who will proctor the certification exam for you. Upon passing the certification exam, you will receive a MTM-UAS Certificate of Completion in MTM-UAS.
