DJI has expanded its Unmanned Aerial Systems Training Center program to North America.
In doing so, the manufacturer has partnered with RMUS to open eight training centres across the US.
DJI said that as the commercial drone industry is expanding across the world and across the US, it is hoping it can help pilots quickly learn the fundamentals of flying commercially through online and on-site training.
The North American UTC Program will start in the United States with eight training centres run by RMUS in Utah, Washington, California, Hawaii, Delaware, Ohio, Texas, and Illinois.
The training centres throughout the United States will begin with level one Commercial UAS Training, a new curriculum established by UTC which aims to provide a solid baseline for pilot skills and knowledge.
The course begins with a foundation building online course and basic flight training with an included Tello drone from Ryze Robotics. The course is completed with an on-site examination and training session at one of the eight training centres, with corresponding hands-on experience to become UTC certified.
Starting in June, this course will be offered at all eight sites.
