Online certification programme for VSAT antennas

Intellian has launched Specialist Certification programme GVF 562N for seafarers working with its marine stabilised VSAT terminals, including an initial course in terminal operation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The course was put together in conjunction with the Global VSAT Forum (GVF). Follow-on courses, intended for field technicians, will cover stabilised platform installation and maintenance.

The new GVF 562N course, as well as its prerequisite GVF 561 (marine VSAT fundamentals), are included at no additional charge to all GVF Knowledge Center subscribers and site license holders. Both courses are available online.

Trainees will learn fundamental aspects of how to monitor, operate, and perform at-sea maintenance of the Intellian antenna models v60, v60G, v80G, v100 and v100GX (in Ku-band mode).

Topics covered include hardware components, principles of operation of the terminal, start-up and shutdown procedures, using the front panel operator controls, satellite modem operation, operator-level troubleshooting, and preventive maintenance.

General operation and problem solving concepts covered in the course also apply to the v240K, v240C, and v240M antennas, Intellian says.

The course, developed by SatProf Inc, is designed for all radio operators, IT technicians, or other seafarers and crew members who are responsible for operating Intellian VSAT terminals while underway.{/mprestriction}
