CLARKSDALE – In direct response to a drone factory set to open in Clarksdale, Coahoma Community College (CCC) is teaming up with Delta Southern UAS to provide a unique training opportunity.

CCC’s Workforce Development Center is now offering a free, entry-level class in Drones and Drone Technology.

Those completing the training may have the opportunity to advance their careers with Delta Southern UAS, which specializes in drone technology.

The company announced plans to open a drone factory in Clarksdale earlier this year.

"This has been a wonderful opportunity to partner with Delta Southern UAS in the form of providing pre-employment training," said CCC Workforce Development Center Executive Director Steven Jossell.

"Traditionally, if you will, you would have to travel north to Tunica, Memphis or the other surrounding areas for such jobs. Now, we’ll be able to offer sustainable, premium wages right here in Clarksdale."

The 45-hour class, which consists of instructional and flight time, will cover an array of topics, including: the history of drone, types of drones, drone usage, drone safety, FAA drone regulations, components and hands on drone flight training.

The training is set to kick-off at 6 p.m. Monday, July 31, at the center, located at 510 Sunbelt Drive in Clarksdale.

Classes will continue to meet from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for five weeks.

To sign-up, call 888-446-1161 ext. 704, leave your name and number and state that you are interested in the drone training.

For questions, contact CCC’s Workforce Development Center at (662) 627-9139.
