Embry-Riddle Bringing sUAS Operations Workshop to Commercial UAV Expo


Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Worldwide Campus, in conjunction with Commercial UAV Expo 2018, is offering a pre-event workshop, the “sUAS Advanced Inspection Operations Course.”

Taking place at the conference on Monday, Oct. 1, at The Westgate in Las Vegas, the 9:00-5:00 workshop will extend beyond Part 107 qualifications to operational knowledge, skills and abilities regarding inspections conducted with small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS).

The curriculum will cover establishing workflows, safety program development and operation, flight operations considerations, and data handling. Attendees will develop proficiencies in identifying and mitigating risk, building efficiencies, internal-external sourcing, and performing platform and support equipment analysis and selection, says Embry-Riddle.

“We are delighted to partner with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which will once again offer a comprehensive course for commercial drone users,” says Lisa Murray, group director at Diversified Communications, organizer of Commercial UAV Expo. “This workshop first took place at Drone World Expo, an event we acquired last year. In addition to being the world’s largest and most comprehensive aeronautical university, Embry-Riddle is also a global leader in UAS education, so their participation in Commercial UAV Expo will be a tremendous benefit to attendees.”

The cost to register for the workshop is $299 until Aug. 3. It also includes lunch and refreshments on the workshop day. Regular pricing for the workshop after Aug. 3 is $349; on-site registration is $399 and is based on availability. More information can be found here.
