Unmanned Safety Institute Partners with ALEA to Provide UAS Training for Members

The Unmanned Safety Institute (USI), a subsidiary of ARGUS International, Inc., and a leader in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) flight safety education, and remote pilot training and certification, has partnered with the Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA), a non-profit organization designed to support, promote and advance the safe and effective utilization of aircraft by governmental agencies in support of public safety missions through training, networking, advocacy and educational programs, and will provide UAS training for ALEA member at a special rate.

USI’s portfolio of eLearning programs will be offered at a 10% discount for all ALEA members. These programs include the Small UAS Safety Ground School Course, the Small UAS Safety Awareness Course, and new products as are they are developed in the future.

The Small UAS Safety Ground School is the industry’s leading training course for individuals seeking to operate UAS as professional remote pilots.  The program offers approximately 24-hours of self-paced content online and prepares the student to pass the FAA Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) exam to obtain their Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.  The program meets Part 107 requirements and exceeds FAA regulatory minimums with advanced flight safety training.  The Small UAS Safety Ground School is endorsed by many aviation insurance providers and is accepted by the FAA for WINGS credit.

The Small UAS Safety Awareness Course is composed of approximately 4-hours of self-paced content online and provides advanced flight safety training that is exclusively devoted to UAS operational safety.  The Small UAS Safety Awareness Course is ideal for individuals who hold a Part 61 Airmen Certificate, or individuals who already possess a Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate.

“The Airborne Law Enforcement Association is the world’s premier organization supporting aviation operations in public safety.  USI is honored to be partnered with ALEA to offer our industry-leading flight safety training products to its members who intend to operate UAS for mission-critical operations,” remarked Aaron Greenwald, USI President.  “This partnership further demonstrates our commitment to supporting the public safety community with world-class safety programs that will ensure their remote pilots are safety trained and USI certified,” continued Greenwald.
