ONLINE TRAINING INFORMATION

We are excited to offer a new way to help prepare you to get your FAA Part 107 UAS License. If you are not able to participate in our in-person training or you would rather study on your own, we have contracted with Drone Pilot Ground School. This is an online course you can take that will help you prepare for the FAA Part 107 Drone Pilot Test. 

 

We have 50 courses available for this online training. These courses will be given out on a first come first serve basis and will be limited to 1 license per district. Please contact Sandy Galaway for your course at riskmanagement@sdao.com.
