Value of FCC class and GROL License (Element 1 and Element 3)

Partnership Information - FCC class and GROL License

In today’s telecommunication industry, information in the form of voice, data, and video are transported across copper pairs, fiber optics and radio/microwave facilities.  

Over the last several years, wireless technologies have increasingly played a significant role in the delivery of all forms of information and this trend will continue.  Traditionally, Telco’s have used microwave technology as a backbone transport vehicle.  Technicians responsible for installing and maintaining these systems as well as antennas are required to have an FCC GROL license.  In the Pacific region, ATT currently assigns skill code C1257 to employees who obtain GROL license.

What makes our FCC course unique is that unlike other training vendors, our course is not just a preparatory course.  Students are introduced to RF technology, including wave propagation, modulation schemes, how radio transmitters and receivers work and the mechanics of antenna systems along with FCC rules and regulations.

Many employers today, including most government agencies and railroads, require communications employees to have an FCC license for the purpose of supporting their radio/wireless technology as well as demonstrating prospective employees are technology savvy. 

As wireless technologies now play a MAJOR role in current and future communication network solutions, the need for an FCC GROL license will be essential for employees to take advantage of job opportunities. Please click either of the files below for course offerings and more information.
