The FAA’s 2018 Reauthorization required the FAA to establish a collegiate training initiative program relating to UAS. It also called for a process to designate an association of public, two-year institutions of higher education as Community and Technical College Centers of Excellence in Small UAS System Technology Training.
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems Collegiate Training Initiative (UAS-CTI) Program addresses the Section 631 requirement of the FAA 2018 Reauthorization Act. Any public two-year institutions of higher education that participate in the UAS-CTI program will also be designated as members of the Consortium for Small Unmanned Aircraft System Technology Training. The FAA will invite members of this consortium to participate in annual meetings and other events with the agency, and we will facilitate the development sharing of best practices through this consortium.
