EMERGING TRENDS IN TECHNOLOGY

The world of technology changes rapidly.  Existing older technologies become more sophisticated and a whole realm of new and emerging technologies are changing behaviors and everyday life at warp speed.  AI, or artificial intelligence, is not limited to self-driving cars.  AI is behind things we now take for granted – computer search engines, personal assistants like Siri®and Alexa®, ride-sharing apps and many more health care, industry and business applications that touch everyone’s life.   Blockchain is a secure, continuously updated record of ownership, available for view by everyone to check on the security and veracity of ownership of items of value.  Most people think of crypto-currency, one of the most common applications, which is used in instant payment transfers and reduces settlement times in transactions, but its potential to disrupt and innovate expands to myriad industry sectors. All large and small corporations are embracing cloud computers and Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the most widely used cloud platforms.  Find out what this emerging technology means to your business.

Remain on the cutting edge of technology, with CCM’s experts teaching you about these new trends.

BECOME A DRONE PILOT

New training and certification program under construction for you!

In order to fly a drone under the FAA’s Small UAS Rule (Part 107), you must obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA. This certificate demonstrates that you understand the regulations, operating requirements and procedures for safely flying drones.

Where to start – CCM’s Center for Workforce Development! 

In partnership with a leading industrial drone operator, the Center for Workforce Development is offering a 78-hour course to obtain FAA certification as a drone pilot in Spring 2022.

Learn the vocabulary, applicable regulations, airspace classification, operating requirements, flight restrictions, weather and weather effects on drone operation, charts and maps and decision-making.

You will be exposed to real world drone applications.  An important part of the class will be operating the drones for flight training.  Industrial drones provide new and versatile ways for businesses to operate.  FAA certified drone pilots are in demand as the drone industry grows.  Drones are used in the hospitality/tourism industry, healthcare, agriculture, emergency response, law enforcement, retail, sport/entertainment, real estate and more.  Our course will have you ready to fly for the first day on your job in the drone industry.
