NGTC Offers Drone Training Classes

New FAA regulations make commercial use of small unmanned aircraft systems the hottest new business technology - Capture the opportunity with North Georgia Technical College’s comprehensive sUAS training courses

 

North Georgia Technical College is offering a comprehensive 18-hour Intro to small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) course that provides hands-on skills training for aspiring business operators to fly drones safely and efficiently and helps them prepare for FAA certification. For those that already know how to fly, a 6-hour Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Prep course is being offered to prepare students to successfully pass the FAA knowledge test. Students can choose the course that best meets their needs based on their current flight skills and interest in employment-related opportunities. The FAA has released r­­­­­egulations that pave the way for expanded commercial use of (sUAS), commonly called drones. As part of the guidelines, drone pilots are now required to pass the FAA’s remote pilot knowledge test Unmanned Aircraft – General to receive an FAA remote pilot certification and be able to use drones for commercial purposes.
