Microwave Networks offers comprehensive microwave radio training courses as part of our world-class services. The objective of the Microwave Networks Customer Training Courses is to provide instruction in system operation and maintenance practices.

We offer several training courses:

  • The Fundamentals of Microwave Radio
  • Proteus MX Operations, Installation, and Maintenance
  • Network Management Systems

Course content covers documentation, test procedures, system equipment, and practical hands-on experience, with individual attention to each student. In addition, students have extensive use of the instruction manuals, which includes diagrams, factory test records and supplemental documentation. The course includes informal discussion periods and opportunities for students to discuss the specific equipment types and configurations he or she will work with. Training is available in English or Spanish.

Training is hands-on. In fact, Microwave Networks trainers ask your engineers and technicians to troubleshoot equipment during training. Your staff gains practical experience, knowledge, and confidence. In addition, students receive training in documentation, including block and schematic diagrams, factory test records, and as-built documentation.

Factory Training

The main Microwave Networks training facility in Stafford, Texas is equipped with fully functional links of our standard radio products. Instruction is oriented to the crafts person and supervisor directly involved in the operation and maintenance of the equipment. You can send your engineers and technicians to our factory in Stafford, Texas (a suburb of Houston). Besides training, your staff will meet Microwave Networks technical and administrative support personnel who can support your staff when they operate and maintain your network. By attending training at our factory, your staff can develop valuable support relationships at Microwave Networks.

Customer Location Training

In addition, Microwave Networks provides training at customer locations. These field classes have the same course content as the in-house classes with special emphasis on the customer’s particular system configuration. Field classes typically use the customer’s equipment for the hands-on training portion of the class. By training your team at your location, we provide hands-on training tailored specifically to your network equipment configuration. With training at your location, you can minimize travel costs of your personnel.

Duration

Training programs typically run two to three days with up to ten students. We can train your personnel yearly or if needed twice a year depending on your personnel needs. Students receive individual attention from our experienced instructors and receive certifications for each product on which they are trained.
