Cloud County Community College’s small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems (sUAS) program will be offering a workshop this summer for high school instructors who will be introducing drones into their curriculum.
This training will help high school teachers introduce drones to their students, and also prepare them to take the Part 107 Remote Pilot Exam.
There will be two phases to the training. Phase one will be online, and must be completed prior to beginning the second phase. The online portion will be worth 24 clock hours. The second phase will be a two-day on-campus flight school workshop. This portion of the workshop will be conducted at Cloud’s Renewable Energy Technology department, on the Concordia campus. Dates for the on-campus flight school are May 30 and 31, or August 5 and 6.
Upon successful completion of both phases, participants will receive an Unmanned Safety Institute Ground School Certificate; a CCCC Flight School Certificate; and professional development hours are also possible.
Workshop instructors will be Cloud’s Certified Unmanned Safety Institute instructors, Monte Poersch and Stacey Baker. Both have Part 107 Remote Pilot licenses.
Early bird registration is $700 per participant, and the deadline is May 10. After May 10, the cost is $750 per participant.
