The Drone Professor has added three new courses to the lineup with more on the way...:


Our popular UAS Safety Operations course is presented in two parts. The objective of this presentation is to provide an understanding of basic operation, safety considerations related to small unmanned aerial vehicle (sUAS) through objective visual examples (photos) along with text references (procedures) and resources (handouts).


Next, for those involved with training programs, we've added a new set of courses from a new presenter. Camtasia 9 is a powerful tool when combined with PowerPoint to generate training videos like those you see on this web site. This two part training series presents the many ways to use Camtasia. The first part lays out the basic principals and tools of Camtasia in 42 lessons. Camtasia can double as a convenient video editor or a screen demonstration tool as well as a way to move PowerPoint presentations to the next level. There are so many ways to use Camtasia, for in-house training, company policy presentations to company or department policy videos.

For a limited time, Drone Professor members can sign up for the Basic Camtaisa course at a special reduced price for a limited time.


Camtasia Extended Training takes it to the next level, with training for using multiple screens, inexpensive noise cancelling, setting up your home network, managing project files, batch conversion of audio and even how to make animated GIF images using Camtasia.


For those who have passed the FAA RPC drone license exam, testing will begin next August for the two year required recurrent testing for renewal. You'll be happy to know, the Drone Professor has you covered, with a course already developed to cover the 7 items required under 14 CFR Part 107.73. That course will be made available on this web site starting June 1, 2018. This is a brand new course, expanded from the original Remote Pilot Ground School material to include current changes in the rules. Be sure to watch for that next year and let your friends know about it. Be sure to sign up early when it is available.

We will continue updating existing training videos and adding new courses, including an introduction to the new LAANC waiver system for drone operation in restricted areas in class B, C and D airspace. .

The Drone Professor is also conducting live classes around the country. Be sure to check the information on the bottom of the page for news of upcoming events, or contact us about classes at your location. Classes are aimed primarily at law enforcement/public safety or real estate applications of unmanned aerial systems. See the Contact Us to let us know how we can help you.
