CSM holding info session for new drone course
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-539-4760.
