SRS has developed a training course for Unmanned Aircraft Systems General Specialists in partnership with Wor- Wic Community College, the Lower Shore Workforce Alliance in Salisbury, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International in Arlington, Va., UAV Solutions in Jessup, Md., and Quality Staffing Services in Salisbury. The training is designed to prepare students for entry-level jobs in the growing UAS industry and is currently provided through the continuing education and workforce development division at Wor-Wic Community College.
The course will introduce students to the history of unmanned aircraft systems, and current and
future developments in civil and military operations. Topics covered in the course include
unmanned vehicles, communication, navigation, launch and recovery, control stations, payloads
and support equipment. Aviation regulatory system and integration, safety and human factors,
ethical and legal issues, and the future of unmanned aircraft systems will also be covered. Students will also receive in-
class flight simulator experience in a computer laboratory in order to reinforce classroom
learning and prepare them for hands-on field experiences.
Tuition is free, but applicants must go through a selection process and space is limited. The
training is being funded by an EARN (Employment Advancement Right Now) grant from the
Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
