New Centre of Drone Excellence

The Institute for Drone Technology has entered into a partnership with Lardner Park to create a permanent hub, the Centre of Drone Excellence (C.o.D.E.), to deliver training and licensing for drone technology.

The C.o.D.E aims to increase productivity through efficiency and effectiveness of drone technology in various industry sectors and delivering solution outcomes. Importantly, the C.o.D.E will enable regional communities to be informed, understand, be trained and licensed, and implement drone technology.

This will contribute to new employment opportunities, knowledge generation and sharing, seeding of new businesses and expansion to new areas for existing businesses. Increasing productivity and creating regional employment also stimulates skill-change opportunities for workers from Latrobe Valley, Wellington and Baw Baw shires.
