The Recreational UAS Safety Test

HSU Educational Foundation is an FAA-approved Test Administrator of The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST).

TRUST is a collaboration between the FAA and industry to provide TRUST and educational safety material to Recreational Flyers. The TRUST requires you to read and understand the content provided and score 100% on the knowledge checks along the way. Successful completion of the course will result in a Certificate of Completion.

Upon completion of the test, recreational flyers should print or save a digital copy of their completion certificate and keep it on their person when they fly. HSU Educational Foundation cannot re-issue your completion certificate if it is lost. The FAA cannot re-issue your completion certificate. Should you lose your completion certificate, you will need to re-take TRUST and obtain a new certificate.
