Students completing our process will be proficient with analyzing complex antenna systems, PIM, and evaluating product, system, and spectrum measurement results. Our certification process is awarded using the following two tiers:
Certification process targets the following individuals:
We focus on applications and not pushing buttons. There is no sales pitch because our courses are manufacturer neutral and we do not use stressful written tests. Rather, our process supports making mistakes as a means of learning. As we say in class, UEs (user errors) are okay. We begin the process with 4-days in a classroom, which includes labs and field exercises. The real work begins after class during the online certification process, which is a combination of computer, test equipment, and system exercises.
Bryant Solutions, Inc.'s certification process is very different. It is interactive not only online, but includes multiple phone interviews to ensure individuals truly understand the material presented. Exercises are randomized and the entire process consists of three case studies and two phone interviews. Our process will challenge the most experienced individual regardless of past training. We have found that in almost all students we see in class are performing distance-to-fault (DTF) measurements incorrectly and do not understand the limitations of a return loss measurement. We also feel it is critical individuals understand the basics of a spectrum analyzer in order to verify external interference is not impacting passive intermodulation (PIM) measurements.

The following tier 1 wireless carriers require RF Sweep and PIM measurements from contractors certified to make these measurements and have formally approved Bryant Solutions, Inc.’s Advanced Antenna Line, PIM, & Spectrum Analysis RF Certification Process to cover both measurements:
