Hi all!

I am Jim Mikel, Director General of the and owner of Spirit Technologies, LLC-B. 

I have spent the last 13 years or so creating the Drone Corps and the quantum technologies used in the program.  I am  working with partners all over the world in autonomous solutions.

The Drone Corps is a new U.S. Department of Labor Registered apprenticeship. As a national apprenticeship program it allows people from all walks of life to go through the Drone Corps apprenticeship earning 15, 18, 21,24, per hour over the 12 months, and 32 at completion - using Licensed Unmanned Vehicles all over the world in many industries - from their home computer.

I am excited to be part of the energy efficiency industry and community with the Drone Corps.  It is an honor to help reduce Climate Change and the blessings I have received in my life to help others.

Over the years, I have created jobs for veterans returning from war with focus on energy efficiency.  Several programs have been implemented in climate change reduction careers nationally, including piloting programs, and working with federal, state, and local stakeholders in various industries.

The Drone Corps employs people from all walks of life and all ages - employing them for 12 months at 15.00 per hour for the first 3 months of the program, then their wages increase, with the last three months making 24.00 per hour, while attending a 12 month program using Licensed Unmanned Vehicles in live and distance learning using the Q-Net and our 3d+ tablet. 

I am currently working with various stakeholders, federal entities, National Laboratories, Aeronautics Specialists, Training experts, 3d modeling experts, and many others in order to roll out the program in January 2023.
