Paul Ouellette, Drone USA’s VP of Business Development and Sales commented, “The team at SMG is very experienced and successful when providing certified training to police and fire departments. From offerings like 2-day certified training or flying at night to roadshow support for groups of 25-50, SMG delivers effective training in a very informative and meaningful way. Police and fire departments are certified on many different products and tools they use every day and drones should be no exception.

Providing certified training and having your COA/waiver in place is critical to the success of a full drone program, that is why we made sure to align with a company like SMG.
