Drones have become an essential tool in the engineering industry as they offer quick and accurate data collection. As unmanned aircraft systems become more crucial, so does the need for certified personnel who can operate contemporary technology. Oates Associates is committed to continuously improving our processes through implementing modern equipment that helps us deliver efficient and quality work.

Our firm continues to grow our drone operations by having team members who are certified through the Federal Aviation Administration Part 107 exam, which is the needed credential to operate a drone. We are proud to announce the firm’s newest recipient of this certification, Ben Miller, ADAC. Ben is the fourth employee at Oates to earn this certificate.

Ben has been involved in Oates’ mission by building his professional experience in diverse areas, including earning his Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator Training Certificate last fall. He is marking his 5th anniversary with the company this month.
