Satcom Direct has received FAA certification for its newly developed Inmarsat Satellite Communications Training Course to count toward requirements for Inspection Authorization renewal. 

The course allows Satcom Direct customers to earn 16 hours toward their Inspection Authorization renewal while learning about their on-board communications systems. The two-day training course offers exposure to general knowledge of the Inmarsat satellite system and troubleshooting techniques for several system types, including hands-on lab exercises.

“This new course will help avionics technicians, mechanics and even pilots learn more about the on-board communications systems they encounter and how to troubleshoot them,” said Jim Jensen, founder and owner of Satcom Direct. “These are important skills for gaining Inspection Authorization renewal credit.”
