The Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land is hold­ing a free in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on the new drone course from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tues­day, Jan. 10, at the La Plata Cam­pus

De­tails of the ground­break­ing “In­tro­duc­tion to Small Un­manned Air­craft Sys­tem (sUAS)” (AVN-5000) course will be discussed. The twoweek, 18-hour CSM course is de­signed to in­struct both hob­by­ists and pro­fes­sion­als on how to fly drones safely and legally, pre­pare for the FAA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion test and learn about the broad range of in­dus- try ap­pli­ca­tions.

Stu­dents will come away from the course with their own drone and the nec­es­sary soft- ware. The first course will be of­fered at the La Plata Cam­pus be­gin­ning Jan. 31. A fu­ture of­fer­ing is be­ing sched­uled at the Leonard­town Cam­pus later in the spring.

The free in­for­ma­tion ses­sion to learn more about the course will be at the La Plata cam­pus’s Cen­ter for Busi­ness and In­dus- try (BI Build­ing), Room 113E, 8730 Mitchell Road in La Plata. To reg­is­ter for the course, go to www.csmd.edu/drones, email cone­dops@csmd.edu or call 301-539-4760.
