Drone, Simulators and Advice

Researching getting a drone for capturing primarily canyon creeking footage but I want to be best trained prior to taking out the drone and crashing it.
What would be an idea simulator, trainer, and drone path for above purpose?

any person using a drone for commercial purposes is required to have a pilot's license. that would certainly help, but otherwise just practice.

Regulations are different in Chile:

Chile does not allow drone use for commercial purposes, only for hobbyist. Chilean Drone Regulations include:

Aircraft must weigh less than six kilograms (13 pounds)
They must have parachutes to prevent a fast, heavy fall
Operators must obtain a license and register drone with the Civil Aviation Authority
Flight must not be higher than 130 meters
Aircraft must not be flown more than 500 meters from its operator
Night use is prohibited
Must not fly over large events
Must not fly within two kilometers (1.2 miles) of an airport
