3 Days / 5 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230)
/ Technical Level: Level 2
Course Code: RP1301
The world has seen a phenomenal growth in the application and use of radio technology. What haven’t changed, however, are the principles upon which all of these technologies are built.
The Radio Principles course provides an in-depth understanding of these principles on which radio technologies are built, taking students on a logical and detailed path through the various aspects of the theory, and practice, of radio communications.
Through attendance on this course, delegates will build an understanding of how radio works and how this impacts manufacturers, users and operators of radio technology.
Who would benefit
Those requiring an understanding of the principles and concepts of radio that underpin today’s radio technologies.
Some experience in telecommunications engineering is beneficial but the course is also suitable for delegates with an aptitude for technical subjects.
