Training and Certification
UAS CORE has renewed its strategic partnership with the DRONE ACADEMY. The DRONE ACADEMY see http://www.njdroneacademy.com/index.html
formerly the NJ DRONE ACADEMY, was recently created as a LLC in partnership with Netcom learning https://www.netcomlearning.com/about-us/management.html
Netcom learning is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner that creates robust technology based learning modules and certifications. They also manage the delivery and distribution of all computer based modules.
Part 107 modules and introductory ground school modules are being enhanced and modified for face to face and distance learning scenarios. In addition the primary market for the new DRONE ACADEMY will be STEM education for K-12 schools, Community Colleges, and Undergraduate and Graduate Programs.
UAS CORE has reviewed the DRONE ACADEMY basic Part 107 and ground school modules and has certified them as sufficient for the public sector to meet their basic training requirements specified within the COA process. Targeted training in public safety use cases (law enforcement, fire services, search and rescue, emergency management) will be developed using subject matter experts (SMEs) within each of the public safety domains. UAS CORE has started to work with several Middlesex Fire Academy trainers in the development of specific drone based, fire oriented use case training modules. We are looking for SMEs in the EOC and law enforcement areas to work on scenario based UAS training exercises for normal emergencies, disasters, and catastrophes.
FAA sUAS Aeronautical Knowledge Exam Prep
This comprehensive 8-hour Drone Academy course will prepare non-pilots to take and pass the FAA sUAS Aeronautical Knowledge Exam, a requirement to legally operate small unmanned aerial vehicles (.55 to 55 pounds including payload) for commercial purposes. The Exam Pep curriculum was developed by a FAA-certified flight instructor who has more than two decades of flight experience working in law enforcement along with existing Part 107 licensed Remote Pilots . Students will leave the course equipped with the knowledge they need to earn their FAA sUAS Remote Pilot Certificates. The Exam Prep does not include flight training.
