Four opportunities for drone training around the US

Exciting news: The Drone Journalism Lab, along with the Poynter Institute, the National Press Photographers Association and the Google News Lab, are going to be holding four Drone Schools for journalists around the country. Based on the Drone Journalism Boot Camp we had here in Lincoln in August, we’ll go over what’s on the Part 107 exam, what’s in our operations manual and what you might want to add to yours, the legal and privacy issues you’re going to face, and a whole lot more. Plus, DJI is bringing drones so we’ll get you in the air while you’re there.

Seats are going fast. Dates, locations and links to sign up are:

March 17-19, University of Georgia (Athens, Georgia)
April 21-23, Syracuse University (Syracuse, New York)
June 16-18, University of Wisconsin (Madison, Wisconsin)
Aug. 18-20, University of Oregon (Portland, Oregon)

If you missed the August boot camp and are still looking for training, I’m really excited for these drone schools. We’ve got great faculty, excellent partner schools and it’s going to be a lot of fun. Hope to see you at one of the events.
