Republic Polytechnic (RP) to promote drone awareness through its new training centre

Singapore: Republic Polytechnic (RP) will be offering several courses at its new drone training centre to assist people learn to fly Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The new centre is going to be unveiled during the polytechnic's open house, by this week.

"Companies recognize and increasingly tap on the potential of drone technology to boost productivity and efficiency. Future growth of UAV applications may, however, be hampered by a lack of technical or situational knowledge and awareness of safety and security issues," RP said.  

Further, the new training centre would offer a variety of courses including five advance and three basic. The basic courses would help the people to learn capturing aerial shots on video, whereas, the advance courses would be more industry-specific, which would cover areas like land planning, search, rescue and recovery systems.

In addition, the basic courses would offer the participants to learn about safety & regulatory processes to fly a drone across Singapore, which would include how to fill the risk assessment form and how to apply for a permit and identify dangers while flying drones.

As per TechSci Research, the new training center would further help the drone market to progress at a global scale by increasing consumer awareness and safety measures related to drone usage across the globe.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “Global Commercial Drone Market By Drone Type, By Application, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2015-2021”, over the next decade, rapidly evolving drone technology is expected to transform the conventional way of doing business in various sectors. Evolving regulatory policy framework, increasing commercial applications of drones across various end-use sectors, coupled with advancements in drone technologies are projected to propel growth in global commercial drone market in the ensuing years. Over the last five years, drones were being mainly used in the defense sector across various countries. However, various advantages such as time reduction, easy manoeuvrability and ability to trim down operational costs is increasing usage of commercial drones in diverse application areas such as precision agriculture, mapping, photography, surveying, media and entertainment, law enforcement & public safety, and inspection/monitoring in energy, mining and infrastructure sectors.
