North Georgia Technical College is offering an 18-hour introduction to small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) 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.
