Two specialized courses are now available to give you the skills and knowledge required to pilot drones and access emerging job opportunities. Students can choose the course that best meets their needs based on their current flight skills and interest in employment opportunities. Our hands-on Knowledge-to-Action curriculum gives advanced insight into the business and employment opportunities created by drones.

The 18-hour hands-on Intro to sUAS course takes students from learning how to fly drones all the way to understanding the requirements for FAA certification. Students learn to fly safely and legally, understand new jobs and business models, prepare to pass the remote pilot knowledge test for FAA certification and get the most out of their drones. The course fee includes a quadcopter with a camera and a computer flight simulator. Topics covered include flying multirotor and fixed-wing drones, indoor flight training, diverse flight systems, maintenance, safety, insurance, industry applications, emerging technologies and the latest FAA policies.

To legally operate a drone for any business purpose, FAA regulations require remote pilot certification. The six-hour Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Prep course prepares commercial pilots to successfully pass the comprehensive knowledge test required for FAA Certification.
