Seeking Expressions of Interest to be Trained as a Drone Operator

The club is involved in pro­vid­ing drone oper­a­tions as part of SLSWA’s larg­er push into shark mit­i­ga­tion.  SLSWA have recent­ly cre­at­ed a new award – the Drone Oper­a­tors Cer­tifi­cate.  If you are inter­est­ed in being part of this group and oper­at­ing a drone on patrol, you are invit­ed to apply to attend the next course being held ear­ly Decem­ber.

The only pre-req­ui­site to becom­ing a drone oper­a­tor is that you are 16 years of age or old­er and are will­ing to be part of a ros­ter to fly the drone at Mul­laloo Beach.  Good eye­sight and hand-eye co-ordi­na­tion is also use­ful!   With the award, you will be an impor­tant part of the club’s patrolling team and is one way to get involved with­out hav­ing any oth­er awards.

As the train­ing is over a short time­frame, you must be able to com­mit to attend both ses­sions below:

  • Wednes­day 4th Decem­ber from 5.30pm-7.00pm
  • Sat­ur­day 7th Decem­ber from 7am-1pm.

If you are inter­est­ed, please email  Oper­a­tions before 5.00pm Wednes­day 20/11/2019
