Spectrum Management Boot Camp, December 3rd & 4th, 2012

The two-day Spectrum Management Boot Camp combines seven Radio Spectrum Institute classes into a complete practical introduction to international and U.S. spectrum management. The emphasis is on the key regulatory aspects that impact the use of the radio spectrum to meet industry or government mission requirements. Important technical considerations are simplified and explained.

Spectrum Management Boot Camp is targeted at professionals who must quickly come up to speed on the diverse requirements of modern spectrum management, or current wireless professionals who desire a broader understanding of the radio spectrum management landscape.

Compared to the one-day Boot Camp, the two-day Boot Camp delves into more details in each topic area and provides more time for questions and discussion. We recommend the two-day Boot Camp for those whose schedule allows.
