Drones for Construction

How are drones used in construction?

Drones can do the job of manned aircrafts and human surveyors but they collect data more accurately than either. This allows construction crews to work quicker with less wasted time and product. Technology companies are currently working to perfect software that will enable contractors to turn the data collected by drones into 3D structural models and topographical maps.

What are the requirements for drone use?

Companies using a drone for commercial purposes must have an employee who has passed their FAA Remote Pilot Test. This test will ensure drone pilots understand flight dynamics,  how to accommodate for weather, and sUAS flight operations.  Certified Training Institute offers an FAA Exam Prep Course to ensure individuals are able to pass the exam on their first attempt.

Where can I find drones in construction courses?

Companies can start using their drone for construction as soon as they have passed the FAA Remote Pilot Test.  However, Certified Training Institute has created a 4 hour Drones in Construction video class to teach the user how to most effectively utilize drones with the added bonus of counting as 4 hours of continuing education in Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Oregon.
