Introduction:

RF Training or Radio Frequency Training Fundamentals Course with Hands-on Labs (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

RF systems come in a bewildering variety of forms and technologies, including satellite and terrestrial, mobile and fixed, microwave, trunked radio, HF/VHF, Blue-Tooth, and RF ID, to name a few. While these systems are diverse in design and function, they all employ radio waves as a means of communication and thus utilize concepts and techniques that are fundamental to all RF systems.

In this RF Training course, you will learn how radio waves propagate and fade, the models that describe RF propagation and fading, how antennas work and are used, the basic traffic engineering models, the principles of RF design and optimization including traffic engineering, and the process of deploying an RF system. At the end of the RF Training course, you will have a solid foundation in the concepts, principles, methods, and considerations common to all RF systems. You will then be well prepared to embark on a more detailed study of your specialized interest in RF, whether cellular/mobile, microwave, HF/VHF, satellite, or other

We provides high-quality RF or Radio Frequency Training Fundamentals programs for government agencies, small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. Our RF Training courses are specifically designed by experts in the field, and the material is continuously updated with the latest information and market trends. RF Fundamentals qualifies for Continuing Education Units (CEU) and for the acceptance of Professional Development Hours (PDH) activities submitted by PE’s for Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) credit.
