DRONE TRAINING

Atlantic Cape Community College has partnered with Influential Drones LLC to provide Drone related training. Influential Drones LLC is providing instruction primarily by their two commercial (part 107) drone operators who also have a manned aviation (part 61) background. Steven M. Davis holds a doctorate and is a 20-year commercial pilot and an FAA Certified Flight Instructor. Dave Krause is an accomplished software architect and a student pilot with over 40-hours as a pilot in command of an aircraft. Both men have OSHA Safety-10 certifications, TSA TWIC cards and are designated by the FAA as the FAASTeam DronePro’s for the South New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware region. Influential Drones LLC maintains an ongoing business relationship with over a dozen drone manufacturers, software companies, and counter-drone industry professionals.

This course is for businesses, professionals, and all those who will use a drone for business purposes. 14 CFR 107 (Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems).

This course prepares you to pass the FAA Part 107 knowledge test, a requirement to become a commercial drone pilot in the United States. To be eligible to get your Remote Pilot Certificate, you must be able to read, write, speak and understand English, must be a US citizen 16 years of age or older and be in a physical and mental condition to safely fly a UAS. Students enrolling for this class must already meet these requirements.

The course is offered in two parts: Online Computer Based Training (CBT) and In-Person Seminar. The online course (CBT) establishes a consistent baseline of education. The course is self-paced, students can take as much or as little time, needed for each section. The total length of the course is 6-hrs, 45-minutes. The course is divided into 11-chapters each with subsections.

The first day of instruction will include signing up for the online CBT course. The second day of instruction, one week later, will require students to have completed the online CBT course.

The seminar will consist of two 3-hour classroom sessions. The first day will consist of an introduction to the program, discussion of the drone industry, registration of the online training course and ends with a lecture so that students get the best out of the online program outside of the classroom. The second session is an in-class study refresher session, about the online course students used to prepare for the FAA Part 107 Knowledge Exam. Sessions will cover the following key topics: Regulations, Airspace, Aviation Weather, Weight & Balance and Performance, and Emergency Procedures.

GENERAL INTEREST

Cannabis has now passed technology as the fastest growing industry in America. Adult use sales are projected to create 18,000 new jobs in New Jersey alone. There is hardly a profession or field that will not benefit from the “Green Rush” that is happening right now. To ignore this massive new market would be short-sighted; however, to compete, candidates will need to be equipped with the right knowledge. This course provides a wide overview of the cannabis industry and the many opportunities it contains.

This six-week course we’ll begin with a foundation of cannabis history and basic plant knowledge that you need in any area of work. Next we will discuss the current laws and where legalization is headed, which is something that one needs to always be aware of in such a highly regulated industry. The next area explored will be the cannabis supply chain, the plant-touching businesses in the “seed-to-sale” process. We will give a sense of the jobs available and what is required in each of these unique areas of expertise: cultivation, processing, and dispensing. Finally, as cannabis is still a business like any other, we will address the requirements and unique challenges of operating a facility in this space.

The course will offer online content to guide participants through the information on each topic. Two optional face to face sessions are available for participants to interact with their instructor and guest speakers.

The weekly content will include information and discussions about The Cannabis Plant and its Roots, Legislation and Law: Cannabis Rights in New Jersey and Nationally, Commercial Processing and Small Batch Extraction, The Basics of Growing Cannabis, Dispensaries and Budtenders, and CannaBusiness. 

The New Jersey CannaBusiness Association endorses this course. The New Jersey CannaBusiness

Association promotes jobs and growth in a sustainable and responsible cannabis industry in the Garden State. Starting with the pioneers in the medical cannabis market to the emerging players in the adult-use space, our focus is to make certain that decision makers and regulators understand and respect the needs of the CannaBusiness community and that our community remains responsible corporate citizens (https://newjerseycannabusiness.com/).
