Representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor, RMS Aerospace and the Texas Workforce Commission participated in a signing ceremony in Dallas this month that marked the start of the first DOL registered apprenticeship in unmanned aerial systems, or UAS. RMS Aerospace, a partner company of the Dallas County Community College District, will establish a separate agreement with DCCCD later this year.

“This partnership is the result of a collaborative effort to bring the nation’s first registered apprenticeship in unmanned aerial systems to North Texas,” said Mark Hays, DCCCD’s vice chancellor for workforce and economic development. “We at DCCCD are thrilled to be part of this leading-edge technology and also to be helping North Texas residents obtain skills in UAS technologies. RMS Aerospace and the U.S. Department of Labor have been exemplary partners, and we couldn’t be more proud to serve as part of this team.”
