Satcom Direct... FAA OKs Training Course

Satcom Direct has received FAA certification for its newly-developed Inmarsat Satellite Communications Training Course to count toward requirements for Inspection Authorization renewal. Those who hold an FAA Inspection Authorization certificate must maintain their eligibility through written documentation, and according to the FAA website, each year during a 12 month period (April 1st to March 31st), they must meet one of five renewal requirements listed in 14 CFR §65.93(a).

Satcom Direct’s Inmarsat Satellite Communications Training Course helps Inspection Authorization holders qualify under item (4) of the listed requirements and is approved to count for 16 hours toward Inspection Authorization renewal. The Inmarsat Satellite Communications Training Course allows Satcom Direct customers the opportunity to earn training hours toward their Inspection Authorization renewal while also learning about their on-board communications system. 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.
