By now you’ve probably got your Part 107 and are likelu looking to up your skill set to distinguish yourself from the 300,000 other Federal Aviation Administration-certified remote pilots out there.

DARTdrones, which most closed a $300,000 investment from Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban in an episode of the show that aired in February,  is now offering four new specialty drone training courses.

The drone training startup is teaming up with drone mapping software startup DroneDeploy to offer an Aerial Mapping and Modeling course. It will be a two day course that goes over how to collect, analyze and export drone mapping and modeling data.

The group will also offer a Drone Journalism Workshop focused on broadcast journalists that teaches not just how to become a certified drone pilot, but how to apply for and receive a waiver. One of the teachers includes Pulitzer Prize-sharing photojournalist Kevin Coughlin, whose work has been published in the New York Times.

DARTdrones’ Rapid Daytime Search and Rescue Workshop will be geared toward emergency responders who want to learn how to use drones to find missing people. The workshop is the first in a series of public-safety focused courses coming soon, including using drones for accident investigation, water rescue and fire scene operations.

The fourth of DARTdrones’ newly announced courses is an aerial roof inspections course.

All four drone specialty workshops will be offered three different times in 2017 at various locations around the country.
