Introduction to sUAS - Public Safety

SAP150 - 24.00 Hours

Description

Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) have unique implications for public safety personnel. Drones can put eyes and ears on the ground and in the air in scenarios that would be impenetrable or life-threatening to personnel. This technology has the potential to extend your team's abilities while improving the safety of everyone involved in an emergency. This course is comprehensive, hands-on training that helps translate this potential into action by providing information that impacts public safety and empowers you to make informed decisions during the planning stage - when you have the chance to maximize your return on investment.

You will receive a workbook, training quadcopter with camera, a computer flight simulator with radio controller, 50 FAA sample test questions, a sample General Order, and a copy of First to Deploy - Unmanned Aircraft for SAR & Law Enforcement by Gene Robinson.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for TEEX Introduction to sUAS - Public Safety Course #78049.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Institute for Law Enforcement and Protective Services Excellence at (800) 423-8433 or ilepse@teex.tamu.edu.
