Modeled on the Drone Academy, this certificate provides both fully-customized onsite and on-campus training modules. Drone technology has increasingly become an integral part of public safety reconnaissance to improve the approach, response time and rescue efforts during critical life-or-death situation. Drones are used by fire and police departments across the country in situations which may be too dangerous or difficult to enter directly.

Our approach is collaborative, includes face-to-face instruction, provides hands-on experiential learning, and can be tailored for a wide range of organizations including emergency medical services, fire and police departments.


Public safety organizations will benefit from employees with strong skills in:

  1. Experience-based skills in safe drone flight operations;
  2. Knowledge-based preparation to successfully pass the FAA Part 107 Certification Exam; and,
  3. Development of policies and organizational protocols in alignment with national standards
