Microwave_Tower_AndrewIf you follow our blog, you may already know about the online training course for microwave radio technicians, field engineers and site installers. The Microwave Radio Antenna Link Fundamentals course covers the fundamentals of microwave transmission, the most commonly used method for backhauling to the core network from wireless cell sites.

Using a “go at your own pace” format, the Microwave Fundamentals course includes a wealth of knowledge about microwave transmission theory, application, microwave antenna selection and systems installation. Successful completion leads to a CommScope Infrastructure Academy certification that is valid for three years. This certification is a great way to validate fundamental knowledge in microwave communications and gain a competitive advantage.

Derren Oliver and I have shared samples of the course content in blog posts since the course was launched. The “Back to Basics in Microwave Systems” blog series touched on much of the subject matter from the course:

Although some of the blogs were somewhat tech-heavy, we wanted to provide you with some of the main content from the course. Of course, there is much more to gain by participating and completing the online class.

This is the end of the blog series; however, you can sign up for the course if you want to learn more. If you have a suggestion for other blog topics related to microwave antenna systems, let me know in the comment section below. We want to offer as much useful information as we can.
