I recently wrote about universities that are provided degree programs for UAS. Another organization that is providing programs is the Unmanned Vehicle University (UVU). It is not yet accredited by the professional accreditation agencies, but is licensed by the State of Arizona Board of Education.
They are offering two three-day seminars called “The Fundamentals of UAVs” – in New York March 19-21 and Houston on March 27-29. The course costs $1999 ($1899 for active duty military) and counts for four university credits – participants will receive a DJI Phantom upon completion of the course. ABOUT THE COURSE
If you want to read more, National Geographic has a post about their Pilot Certification program and here is a paper called A New Approach to Unmanned Systems Education and Training, by the President of Unmanned Vehicle University, Dr. Jerry LeMieux, President. Below is a segment from Fox News. This is a new way to approach education, and I’m for anything that educates people before they start flying. If you’ve attended one of their programs, I’d love to hear from you with feedback.
