Prerequisites: The iOM Course is a prerequisite to attend Advanced IOM training.
The Advanced iOM was developed based on information and professional tips collected from the iGT engineering group, Technical Assistance Center (TAC), community professionals and suggestions from previous Advanced iOM students. This course is intended for those advanced users who provide second-level technical support for iDirect satellite products and networks and covers Advanced RF and Data communication concepts and their relevance to the iGT system. The Advanced IOM also covers various case studies, theoretical material and practical exercises that provide students with a deeper understanding of the iGT system and its functions. In addition, hands-on exercises are included that cover the various components of the system and allow the students to practice advanced troubleshooting methods.
Handouts are provided to supplement existing course material and to provide the latest details on currently-released software and hardware components.
