If you want to be the technology specialist who can procure and gain insight into cutting edge systems to help save lives and cut disaster losses, this Professional Certificate provides the foundational knowledge you need.

It is designed for recreational hobbyists, certified remote pilots, commercial operators, and public safety and government users.

This course covers unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to include drones and autonomous aerial vehicles, sensors, communications, ground control, navigation and other payloads that rely on complex algorithms that can be applied for protecting and saving lives and property.

In this edX Professional Certificate, you will learn the importance of autonomous systems and drone technologies that bring speed, efficiency and affordable solutions to disaster response and management. Topics include the use of drones by emergency managers, first responders, and search and rescue personnel responding to natural and manmade disasters.

No previous knowledge of drones or flight experience is required. Join as you start your drone journey.

Taught by highly experienced instructors and practitioners in military and civil UAS operations, practical applications, systems design, and emergency management planning, this course will provide the novice, subject-matter expert analyst, planner and operational associate with the technical understanding for infusing drone solutions into emergency management and planning.

Additionally, those who have a curiosity or general interest in drones, be it casual or in-depth, will benefit from this course to gain insight into emergency management, homeland security, and intelligence applications.
