MAYS LANDING -Now that South Jersey is at the center of the FAA’s Unmanned Aerial System testing, Atlantic Cape Community College is offering a course about this groundbreaking technology.
“We have a goal to make our Aviation Program here one of the premier Aviation Programs in our Region,” says Dr. Otto Hernandez, Dean of Career and Technical Education at Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing.
Hernandez believes that introducing a course on the Unmanned Aerial Systems, also known as drones, can help enhance the college’s Aviation Program.
“The goal is to familiarize the student’s with the concept. Look at this technology, what it’s capable of, what it can do, and than look at some of the safety and security issues,” says Hernandez.
Any student at the college can take this class and learn about the fundamentals of UAS.
“There’s a textbook. There will also be a huge amount of material that our two instructors will bring,” says Hernandez.
