SPC Adds New Drone Training Classes

2019-06-01T15:23:01-04:00

Since the Workforce Institute at St. Petersburg College‘s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) – or drone training – program was established in December 2015, there have been over 360 enrollments in various drone classes. The program continues to expand. In fact, SPC partnered with The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) in January 2019 to advance the unmanned systems and robotics community in the Tampa Bay area. Upcoming UAS (Drone) training classes at SPC In July 2016, FAA released new rules for non-hobbyist small unmanned aircraft (UAS) operations, Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.  These rules cover a broad spectrum of commercial uses for [...]

3D Printing to the Rescue Again!

2019-06-01T15:28:06-04:00

When Tom Hurley, Senior Facilities Specialist in Facilities Planning & Institutional Services at St. Petersburg College, recently visited the iLab at SPC’s Seminole campus, it was for an interesting type of tech help. Hurley came to see if the iLab could 3D print a part that he was looking for. When an actuator connector, which helps control many of SPC’s water temperature valves, fails, it costs over $200 to replace the entire electric actuator controller. Hurley found that the iLab could print these actuator connectors on demand so that a repair could happen very quickly while saving the college money. SPC’s iLab [...]
