Funded by a $6 million federal America’s Promise grant through the U.S. Department of Labor, the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or drone technology program is comprised of two tracks:
The program will first provide UAS Ground School and Federal Aviation Administration 107 certification classes that students take to become licensed commercial drone pilots. The FAA 107 certification school will provide students comprehensive classroom instruction to pass the FAA 107 written test which is administered free to students. Once students complete the ground school module and possess a drone pilot license, they can then go on to take UAS Surveying and Mapping or UAS Cinematography.
This project received funding from a grant awarded under the America’s Promise program as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor. This project is an equip opportunity employer/program with auxiliary aids and services that are available upon request for individuals with disabilities.
