Drone Operation for Security Surveillance

Course Overview

Drone Operation for Security Surveillance Course will equip participants with the know-how to operate aerial drones in the execution of surveillance and/or inspection tasks according to technical and operational specifications, specifically in the area of security. It will also cover the legal, operational and safety considerations and requirements behind the planning and executing of such aerial surveillance/inspection operations.

As drones become cheaper and more versatile through the years, aerial surveillance and inspections with drones have also grown easier to carry out as compared to more traditional modes of surveillance and management. Public agencies across many industry sectors have already begun testing and employing drones in such areas. Most notably, the SPF has been using drones in surveillance and crowd control since 2016.

My sister and I had many questions about the different courses. The staff present including the boss Mr Wee were very patient and friendly to help us. The centre at Toa Payoh was also easy to get to and centre facilities were kept clean and tidy. We have a very good experience.
