Client travel news - NCIE - IDX Flint Drone Training Program

November 29, 2018

One of our deadly clients NCIE (National Centre of Indigenous Excellence) has been up to some pretty cool

& interesting work holding their IDX Flint - Drone training programs recently in Sydney.

 

IDX Flint is a national program for regional and remote communities that sparks the interest, ideas and talent of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in making digital technology. This month the IDX Initiative hosted it’s annual IDX Flint Facilitator camp at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in Redfern Sydney.  

 

 

25 IDX Champions from 13 communities across Australia are participating in the digital training. The training covers the use of robotics, virtual reality, coding and drones and is an opportunity for the participants to connect and share knowledge, as well as gain new skills to take back to community. 

 

This week the participants are undergoing a week of intensive training to complete their CASA remote pilot licence. With a few more days of hands on training to go, the participants will face an exam later this week on everything they’ve learned, with the aim to take their new found skills (and qualifications) back to their home communities around Australia! 

 

In Travel Group loves seeing our clients get up to some interesting projects around the place and we're always more than happy to assist with getting our clients to where they need to be.
