I have contacted two of the organizations (CQFA in Dorval and Exo Drone in Laval) who are listed in the TC site as drone flight schools who have self-declared that they provide training in line with Transport Canada standards.
As it stands, neither have developed courses to prepare specifically for the exams under the new regulations but they expect to do so by June 1 or earlier.

Exo Drone is having an info. session on 29 Jan. when they expect announce their updated courses. If you call them they will automatically email you news updates on their course offerings.

Exo Drone pointed out that TC will not be proactively vetting these courses. TC will retroactively look at the pass rates of examinees who have completed courses at each school and if the pass rates are too low at a particular school they will remove them from the list of « self-declared » schools on the TC website. Buyer beware!

Of course all of this may be a moot point for those of us that only fly at a MAAC approved field (or Indoors) as we expect to see exemptions for MAAC members under the new regs. But I have a feeling that in order to get exemptions in this new context MAAC will have tighten up its own rules or have fewer exemptions from the new regs.

Basic test

I wrote and passed the test, 10 dollars and 25 mins later. It's easy and I am no genius. It is also open book as we say, so you can always google the question if your not sure.
