This course is an examination and demonstration of how Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) can effectively be integrated into Public Safety agencies. The requisite for this course is to be an active duty first responder or other public safety professional. Students within the course will learn about aeronautical principles in order to be safe flight operators. Students will be given a course of practical exams to test their ability to fly various drills and live scenarios. Students must pass the written exam with an 80% proficiency or higher. Students must also pass the hands-on exam with 100% proficiency. The ultimate goal is to foster a sense of common understanding and standards among Public Safety UAS operators. No prior UAS/drone knowledge is required to take this course. This is the only ANSI national standard in the field of unmanned systems.
