With the hopes of conducting our 4th Annual Public Safety Drone Expo (PSDE) as an in-person event dashed by COVID-19, we have developed a plan to provide as much of the training scheduled to take place during this event as possible online.
As part of this plan, we have partnered with the Association for Unmanned Vehicles International (AUVSI) to conduct the APSA Public Safety Drone Symposium on their platform as a co-located event during their virtual XPONENTIAL 2020 on October 5, 2020. This symposium will consist of four 90-minute classes from PSDE (see below). Participants will also be able to visit their virtual exhibit hall. Registration for this event is being handled by AUVSI and can be accessed HERE.
