Drone (Unmanned Aerial Systems)

The UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) Drone Certificate is designed to give the student a solid foundation in understanding unmanned aerial vehicle system technologies, capabilities, regulations, safety, and legal responsibilities. The certificate will provide the student with both FAA regulations and knowledge along with practical flight skills necessary to successfully operate a UAV. This certificate consists of a hobbyist-targeted fundamental course and commercial-use focused intermediate course using high-end UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) drones.

Interested in the course but unable to make it to campus? Distance learning is an option with no need to come to class! As long as you have access to a personal drone that includes a camera to record video or take pictures, you are eligible to become certified.

Additional Fees 
In addition to the certification tuition, there is a $5 fee to register your drone (if you have one) and a $150 fee for the Commercial Certification Exam, if you choose to take the exam.
