The program will offer a core of courses that will develop an operational knowledge of UAV design, limitations, operations, and maintenance. The College has also developed four specializations:
- Business Development Specialization
- Fire/Rescue Specialization
- Law Enforcement Specialization
- Payload Specialist Specialization
Each of these specializations will develop additional skills and knowledge needed for specific operations in those sectors of the industry.
The sixty two (62) credit hour curriculum framework focuses instruction on the knowledge and skills required to meet the Airman Certification Standards published by the FAA to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate. Intellectual knowledge focuses on the theory, practice, regulatory requirements and execution of commercial UAV operations. Weather, aerodynamics, national airspace structure, vehicle design and control, and human factor considerations are all components of the classroom delivery. UAV operational skills are developed and are refined.
