As the use of drones increases across the country, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) is excited to launch the Drone certificate. “From companies, media outlets, law enforcement to your neighbor down the street, it seems like everyone has a drone these days,” said NWTC College of Business Instructor Brandon Mueller. “We want to help educate the amateurs and the pros on everything they need to know about drones.”
The four-credit program is designed for individuals to develop an understanding of drone history, types of aircraft, various applications of drone use, legal matters, safe usage, and practical hands-on flight experience.
“Graduates from the program will know how to fly drones safely, abide by local and federal laws and regulations, and explore drone technology and applications,” said Mueller.
Courses are set to begin in fall of 2017 at NWTC’s Green Bay campus.
