In Connecticut alone, more than half of the state's community colleges have adopted the exciting curriculum, including Capital Community College in Hartford, Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, and Quinebaug Valley Community College in Danielson with many other schools soon to take flight.
"We are proud to begin this new alliance with Aquiline Drones, our neighbor in the same city," said Capital Community College's CEO Dr. G. Duncan Harris. "Capital is committed to providing our students with opportunities in up-and-coming, high-growth industries and this course gives them an exciting opportunity to take their education to new heights."
Students are required to enroll in two specific classes to earn their commercial drone operator certificate:
Since the instruction is entirely online, students can work at their own pace. Each course takes approximately four months to complete. Scholarships may be available for qualified students.

"Due to the growing demand of drone use cases nationwide, we're excited to deliver this exceptional technology to our college students now so that they are better prepared for the transportation means of the future," said Diane Bordonaro, Chief Regional Workforce Development Officer for the Capital-East region of the CT State Community College system.
"It is my goal to institute Aquiline Drones' ambitious curriculum into every Connecticut state college by the start of the 2022/23 school year."
Graduates of the drone certification program will have a deep understanding of how to navigate an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and the necessary training to obtain the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 Certified Drone Pilot license. Most importantly, these courses arm them with solid entrepreneurial skills that allow them access to a field of countless industries currently serviced by drones, including real estate, construction, farming, public safety, oil and gas and energy and utilities among others. Further, the program helps teach participants how to establish and operate their own commercial drone business.
