A new program known as Community and Technical College Centers of Excellence in Small Unmanned Aircraft System Technology Training is underdevelopment. Authorized by Congress under the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, this program will establish an expanded role for two-year public colleges in education and training for jobs involving unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drone technology. We are working with community and technical colleges throughout the country to coordinate this effort with the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA launched the UAS initiative for community and technical colleges on April 30, 2020.
Preparing the Drone Workforce Professional Development Webinars
We are organizing an online series of professional development sessions for community and technical colleges during the month of June 2020. The four-part Zoom series, Preparing the Drone Workforce Professional Development Webinars, will be hosted by the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE). Here is NACCE’s landing page to register for the webinar series – https://www.nacce.com/ctcc.
