Tait Communications’ online education programme, the Tait Radio Academy, has launched a new course covering the P25 suite of standards for digital radio communications. The company says the new course is part of its ongoing commitment to critical communications technology users to provide education, skills and knowledge in this important interoperability standard for public safety organisations.
Tait Radio Academy launched earlier this year to address the growing need for accessible training content. Recognizing that more and more people would rather watch videos than read a manual, the Radio Academy has published dozens of videos around topics including wavelength, trunking, and coverage.
The new P25 course will consist of 17 videos on the Radio Academy website covering a wide range of technical topics, including network architecture, channel operation and configuration, and call types and features.
Craig Clapper, President, Global Solutions and Business Development at Tait, said the new P25 course has arrived at the right time. “We’ve seen high interest and adoption rates from our customers for P25 around the world, particularly at public safety organizations in North America, Australia and New Zealand.
“Our course was developed in response to ensure the next generation of radio technicians has the skills and knowledge needed to effectively use P25 to enhance their communication.
“I’m pleased that our experts can share their knowledge in this way and help build skills in radio technology. We’ve had a terrific response to the Radio Academy since it launched, and I expect we’ll see the same with our P25 course.”
Experts with decades of industry experience in education and radio technology write each of the Tait Radio Academy courses. Courses are free and video lessons can be viewed online. Registration gives users additional access to study tools, including a guide, quizzes and certificates, and collaborative learning through online forums.
