AUGUST 2019 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 57 plies what they have learned during one of our classes. Knowing that we are making a positive difference and helping others to be successful are just two main reasons why IPC CID/CID+ instructors continue to do what we do. In the next section, you will find the remain- ing training sessions to take advantage of, and PCB West is right around the corner. I high- ly recommend attending these specific CID/ CID+ certification classes, along with register- ing and attending the full PCB West event. This opportunity for both certification and technical content knowledge sharing is always a great combination for us in the industry. I hope you can attend at least one or the other, or even better, both. I hope to see you there this year! 2019 Training and Certification Schedule IPC Certified Interconnect Designer (CID) • August 26–29: Markham, ON • September 6–9: Santa Clara, CA • September 19–22: Schaumburg, IL • October 8-11: Carmel, IN • October 21–24: Anaheim, CA • November 2–5: Raleigh, NC • November 5–8: Dallas, TX IPC Advanced Certified Interconnect Designer CID+ • September 6–9: Santa Clara, CA • September 10–13: Kirkland, WA • September 17–20: Schaumburg, IL • October 21–24: Anaheim, CA • November 2–5: Raleigh, NC • December 3–6: Manchester, NH Note: Dates and locations are subject to change.

Technavio analysts forecast the global commercial drone market to grow at a CAGR of more than 36% over a four-year period, according to their latest market re- search report. The growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the major trends being witnessed in the global commer- cial drones market during the 2018—2022 timeframe. Commercial drone operators are increasingly integrating AI into their drones, which allow drones to capture data, analyze it, and make decisions based on data. The growing demand for improved data and better data insights has led to a significant increase in the adoption of commercial drones across the world. The Americas held the largest share of the market in 2017, followed by the EMEA and APAC respectively. The region will contin- ue to dominate the shares of the commercial drones mar- ket during the forecast period, owing to the increasing investments in commercial drones, and the relaxation of the regulations related to commercial drones by federal agencies such as the FAA.
