CSU course preps students for drone certification
The course is taught by the founder and director of the CSU Drone Center, as well as other instructors with real-world UAS mission experience
Colorado State University is offering a two-week online course, Aug. 14-27, designed to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to pass the Federal Aviation Administration’s Remote Pilot Aeronautical Knowledge Test (commonly known as the Part 107 exam) to obtain their drone license.
The course, which was also offered in May, is taught by the founder and director of the CSU Drone Center, Christopher Robertson, as well as other instructors with real-world UAS mission experience.
The hybrid, online course is split between student-led components and six live sessions with certified instructors. Each student will have access to all test prep materials and will receive one-on-one attention from instructors as needed.
In 2015, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) predicted the drone industry will create more than 100,000 jobs by 2025 and will have an economic impact of $82 billion. Agriculture, construction management, search and rescue, forestry, real estate, fire and emergency services, entertainment and photography are some of the industries drones are impacting
The course costs $199. There are no prerequisites. For more information and to register, visit www.online.colostate.edu/courses/EDLL/EDLL2400.dot
