The popularity of drone usage keeps growing

We have seen a rapid increase in drone use, and more precisely comercial drone use, in the past year. Because of this, organisations and day to day users need to have a comprehensive understanding of how to safely handle drones, as well as the legal restrictions all drones have, starting from small leisure crafts and ending in large commercial drones have.

Drones have many uses. Some industries use them to help companies save money, improve safety, and enhance the efficiency of their operations. If you are managing drone operations, this course will help you advance your understanding and gain a certificate from a leading Australian Registered Training Organisation, the Institute of Drone Technology.

The opportunities and career paths for managing drones are as varied as Beekeeper, to Costume designer, to Whale researcher [1] and much more. It is really up to your imagination to figure new ways to implement this skills in your career of choice.

By understanding the safe and legal use of drones you will be gaining a valuable and highly employable skill that will help you to build a skillset for today and into the future.
