Do you want to become SOLiD Certified?  

Do you want to know how to commission a SOLiD system, understand the math and signal flow in a DAS, or do you need to quickly get up to speed as you will be deploying/managing a SOLiD system in the near future? The SOLiD Certification Program is exactly what you need!

Combining the theory, practice and the math behind the SOLiD DAS, the course will demystify key concepts when talking about RF Amplification and DAS (e.g. uplink noise, PIM, LTE, etc.). The class is a 3-day interactive and fun-filled session where you will learn a lot and also have the opportunity to meet like-minded peers from the industry.

Candidates attending the class are asked to have a basic understanding of Radio Frequency (RF) and eager to learn. In addition, candidates will need to pass a multiple choice written test (individual activity) and a hands-on test (group activity) at the end of the 3-day course in order to be successfully certified. All candidates are also expected to complete the pre-requisites assigned via their SOLiD University account before attending the class. Individual certification statuses are pro-actively shared with the WSPs or upon request.

Classes are held regularly at our HQ in Sunnyvale, CA and in regional locations as needed. 

To register for certification, please sign up online via your SOLiD University account or request access to SOLiD University at training@solid.com.  You may also contact your sales representative for additional information.
