Sinclair says the purpose of the training program is to introduce students to the "basic aspects of UAS operations" focusing on ground training, global information and systems integration, among other things.
The course will be taught by experts from Sinclair and its UAS training partners, including the University of Dayton, the Center for UAV Exploitation, Woolpert design firm, and Co-Operative Engineering Services Inc. (CESI).

The Ohio Board of Education has named its interim superintendent as state superintendent, after two of the three finalists for the job stepped aside.
Stan Heffner, who was not one of the finalists, was appointed Tuesday. His selection means the board rejected remaining finalist Robert Schiller, a former state superintendent in Michigan and Illinois who works as a Florida education consultant.
