Program Description:  FAA Part 107 Test Prep Course

      Drones are a hot item with photographers today! But unlike most aspects of photography, drone photography requires a government certification. This course will teach photographers the rules and regulations required by the FAA to successfully pass the Part 107 FAA exam for sUAS’s. 

     We will cover the 5 main subject areas of the test. This include regulations, airspace classifications and operating requirements, weather, loading and performance, and drone operations. 

     A sample test will be administered to prepare the participants to take the Part 107 exam upon completion of this course.
