“Training is so important to Satcom Direct that we consider it a core value, along with innovation and support,” said Satcom Direct President David Greenhill. “When you add new tools to your aircraft, you have to be able to make them work. We provide more than products and services, we provide solutions - like training - so that you get maximum value and usefulness from your technology.”

The classes range from one to three days in duration and can be provided at a customer’s location upon request. The courses are lead by IATA Certified training professionals and participants receive certificates upon completion of each class.     

  • These courses enable learners to speedily troubleshoot complex SATCOM configurations with ease by providing theoretical and practical modules. Certification is important in aviation and our courses come with fully certified practices,” said Head of Training Sanaa Saadani.

The classes cover all technical networks in aviation communications. The foundation course focuses on troubleshooting and SATCOM schematics. The Inmarsat aviation course provides training on legacy and next generation Inmarsat systems. The IP and Voice course concentrates on introducing maintenance and operational professionals to troubleshooting IP networks, which are vital to today’s aircraft.

“We’re committed to advancing the science that serves you in the cockpit and the cabin. It’s all part of keeping you connected and delivering the ultimate user experience,” said Greenhill.
