Become a drone pilot at Palomar College!
This program will prepare students for employment in many fields that employ drones or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in their daily operations. These fields include mapping and surveying, environmental management, real estate, journalism, search and rescue, agriculture, videography, public safety, as well as cultural resource management and archaeology. The curriculum will provide students with hands-on training in UAS operations, basic knowledge in drone data processing and analysis, and preparation for the Federal Aviation Administration’s Commercial Remote Pilot Exam.
Discontinuance of the PWM Level II Program, effective Fall 2021:
The college will be phasing this program out through a one year process that will offer each class only one more time so that students are able to finish the program no later than spring 2021. If your educational goal is to receive a Certificate of Achievement or an Associate Degree in Public Works Management Level II from Palomar College, then you should review this plan carefully to make sure you are available to take the course the next time it is offered and then apply for your Certificate or Degree upon completion of your last course. Below is the phase out schedule of classes for this program discontinuance. All courses will be offered online.
