Manufacturing large DJI has partnered with the Unmanned Safety Institute (USI), to assist practice the following era of drone pilots and broaden profession alternatives in business drones.
The two organizations have announce a partnership to “promote Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) learning in STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) providing students with a path for jobs in the rapidly growing commercial drone industry,” says USI. “The USI STEAM education program is tailored toward high schools and colleges, and provides teacher credentialing, course materials, and drones, supplied by DJI, to educational institutions throughout the United States.”
USI provides drone pilot credentialing along with the FAA’s Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate. Students finishing a minimum of 155 classroom hours of their program can take an examination to obtain a “Small UAS Safety Certification™.” The further certification is designed to reveal a excessive degree of proficiency and experience within the discipline.
“The Unmanned Safety Institute is proud to announce this partnership with DJI to support teachers and students in high schools and colleges across the country,” mentioned Aaron Greenwald, President of USI. “Through our partnership, we are combining USI’s award-winning education and certification programs with DJI’s powerful aircraft technology to provide a comprehensive ‘turnkey’ solution for educators that is unmatched anywhere in the world.”
“At DJI we believe that allowing students to work with cutting edge technology like our commercial drone platforms will inspire them and allow them to see potential career opportunities,” mentioned Romeo Durscher, Director of Education at DJI. “This program will provide educators with the tools they need to give students hands-on experiences with technology that is becoming pervasive across a wide variety of industries including construction, agriculture, insurance and emergency services.”
As the business drone trade expands, educators targeted on STEAM curriculum are together with drones at an rising fee, within the hopes of offering a profitable profession path for younger aviation lovers. DJI has been a frequent associate in humanitarian and instructional initiatives, a part of the corporate’s mission to advertise the drone trade.
