DWS is a global technology and Strategic Business Solutions company that has created an ecosystem that provides education and training in drone and virtual reality photogrammetry technology in its school, and solutions to corporations, businesses, organizations, and governments thorough its employment company. The Drone industry is projected to generate $100 Billion in annual revenues (article, “Reporting for Work”, Goldman Sachs study of drone industry).

DWS Drone School, Inc., founded in March 2020, is the global training and education school that teaches students how to pass the FAA Part 107 exam to be a commercial licensed drone operator and learn how to fly a drone, with its proprietary drone curriculum that was created by United States FAA commercial airline pilots who are also flight instructors and curriculum developers and commercial licensed drone pilots. We believe it is one of the best curricula in the drone industry. They also teach virtual reality photogrammetry and 3D modeling.

Drone Workforce Solutions, LLC, is the global drone staffing and employment agency which attempts to employ Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 107 licensed commercial drone operators and VR operators.

The DWS Mission:

  1. Is to accelerate the growth of the drone industry, and its capacity to help to solve many of the world’s challenges by harnessing technology using drones and virtual reality and 3D modeling (VR) by providing education and training and workforce development opportunities through the DWS global technology school, DWS Drone School, and its global employment company, Drone Workforce Solutions.
  2. Is to create a Global drone and virtual reality network, (aka “The Universe”) which acts as a catalyst in bringing together and accelerating cross collaborations of drone and VR industry innovators, producers, programmers, software developers, robotics/drone manufacturers, FAA Part 107 certified, commercial drone pilots, global thought leaders, strategic partners, and futuristic solution providers, from a range of organizations including major corporations, start-ups, non-profits, universities and governmental entities.
    Theo Nix Jr., Esq., President/CEO wants to train and retrain a new generation of Americans with these technologies and create a middle class that thrives economically and makes a transformational difference in the world.

There is no better group to participate in this vision than our Veterans who have protected our country and the world. DWS and its global partners are privileged and honored to be facilitators and a conduit for them to exchange guns for drones and VR cameras.

DWS Drone School has created their “Veterans First” Initiative which aggressively seeks to provide drone and virtual reality education and training for our honorable men and women. DWS is the only school in the nation to be approved by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to teach veterans in these two technologies which allows vets to use their education benefits to take these classes and they are provided with the drones, batteries and VR cameras and goggles.

DWS Drone School has been approved to operate a technology school and its courses, with more courses to follow, by the Department of Education in the following:

  • Delaware- their corporate location
  • New Jersey
  • Georgia
  • Tennessee
  • Illinois
  • And a pending approval in Kenya, Africa
