I attended the Argus Rising 107 Test Prep and Flight Skills Training.  It was great training and the instructors were friendly and extremely helpful.  They ensure that everyone in the class understands the course material before moving on to the next chapter. 
After taking the exam and you begin the flight portion of the training, the instructors ensure that you know how to use and comfortably fly your drone.  If you have no experience with flying drones, the instructors with Argus Rising will take the time to show you how to set up, register, and fly the drone.  I would recommend Argus Rising to any First Responder who is looking to obtain their Remote Pilots Certification.
