Satellite Internet System Installer Training


Satellite Internet systems transmit data as well as receive. While satellite TV dishes can usually be pointed by hand, satellite Internet systems require a much more technical and much more accurate installation and pointing. There is also a safety consideration, as improper installation and precautions could cause unwanted exposure to high wattage RF, which can actually stop a cardiac pacemaker.


Transmitting data from a poorly aimed satellite Internet antenna can also interfere with other satellite networks on the same or different satellite. This is known as adjacent satellite interference or simply "ASI". If there is a report of ASI by any user, immediate steps have to be taken to identify and deactivate that antenna.


Hands-on installation of a two-way satellite Internet system by anyone other than a qualified technician is a punishable violation of Federal Communications Commission rules, and opens the installer/owner up to serious legal liabilities.


Mobil Satellite Technologies is a certified satellite training company, and offers satellite Installer training classes designed to qualify and certify individuals to install and point two-way satellite Internet systems. This training is offered only to existing Mobil Satellite Technologies multiple-location customers, or new customers who purchase multiple satellite systems.


Training can be held at any suitable customer provided location. The class is one full day, and may be attended by up to four people. A satellite dish must be present at the location, or one may be rented for training at additional expense. If this training is to be for a larger group, it can also be spaced out over multiple days to allow multiple shifts or employee groups to attend.


After attending this comprehensive training and receiving your certification, you or your personel will be able to install and point your own fixed satellite dish system, and move it and re-install it whenever and wherever you need.
