Recommended Prerequisites – It is highly recommended that the participant either already possess a Remote Pilot Certificate or take an online Remote Pilot Certification Test Prep Course prior to attendance of this program.
Description – Unmanned aerial vehicles are becoming more and more common in the national airspace, and their use in surface transportation emergency response is becoming invaluable to the agencies that utilize them.
This 24-hour course will prepare responders for the challenges associated with the deployment of these systems and demonstrate the advantage that they offer in the areas of situational awareness, scene assessment, hazard monitoring, and more. Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) are becoming invaluable to the agencies that utilize them. Live demonstrations will be conducted to allow students the opportunity to witness the vast opportunities provided by an effective sUAS program to further the safety and well-being of responders in the field and the civilian populations they protect.
This course will cover – The history of unmanned systems, the rules and regulations governing their use, certification requirements, restrictions, and how to integrate an Unmanned Aerial System into their current Incident Command Structure. These objectives will be met through both classroom presentations and live demonstrations that afford the student an opportunity to interact with an established UAS program while accomplishing realistic emergency response objectives in full-scale surface transportation incidents.
The program will provide the participant who completes this class with knowledge that would be helpful in taking the Remote Pilot Certification examination.
Target Audience – The target audience for this course is for individuals involved in emergency response, infrastructure inspection, aerial agricultural observation and support of local, state or federal officials for aerial video observation work who would have a need to utilize small Unmanned Aerial Systems Aircraft.
