GVF's Expert Forum Access Is Expanded

The GVF Experts Forum is a free, moderated discussion area dedicated for discussions of training courses and any other SATCOM technical topics.

The forum is monitored by the SatProf instructors and guest experts who are available to participate in conversations and to answer questions from learners and the SATCOM community. Now, GVF extends an invitation to all of the organization's past students to participate. If you have taken any GVF courses in the past, whether or not you completed a certification, you are welcome to log in to your student account and click on “Experts Forum” icon on your dashboard. There, you will find a range of topic areas and conversations. You are invited to help current students with their questions, ask your own questions, and share your experience with colleagues across the SATCOM industry. If you need any help accessing your account or updating your profile, please contact us at gvfsupport@satprof.com.

GVF Knowledge Center
Social Buttons Added to Enrollment and Completion Emails
Now you can easily post course enrollment and completion information on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Look for the new “share buttons” in your GVF course enrollment and completion emails and share your accomplishments with one click. In addition, once you complete a GVF Certification, your congratulations email will include an “Add to Profile” LinkedIn button. By clicking on it, your certification will appear directly on your LinkedIn profile.

Use these links to show GVF training course completions and certifications on your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profiles alongside your professional references and work history. According to LinkedIn, members who display certifications get six times more profile views than those who don't.

Additionally, we have added the option for your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn links to be included in your profile. Make sure to go to Edit My Profile to add your social account links. If you are being shown in the GVF public certification database, your social network links will now appear in your profile!
