2010 - 2011 OSM Spectrum Management Training Classes

NTIA Spectrum XXI Training Class

Open to non-DOD Federal Government spectrum managers, including contractor support personnel, involved in the radio frequency engineering of frequency assignments

The Spectrum XXI software assists non-DOD Federal spectrum managers in engineering and nominating frequency (ies) for the submission of new frequency proposals as well as creating submissions for the modification or renewal of frequency assignments. Spectrum XXI works on the spectrum manger's desktop or laptop computer and runs on Windows operating systems. It includes the compliance checks that all frequency proposals must pass through at the NTIA so that work can be checked and verified before it is forwarded upwards to the next echelon. Spectrum XXI has several engineering programs, such as point-to-point plots, coverage plots, including terrain features on those plots. Spectrum XXI also allows the interfacing of the NTIA Spectrum XXI server for all unclassified work provided your agency has signed onto the server (click here for more information)

NTIA Spectrum Management Forum

Open to U.S. Government Employees and Federal Contractors

Unlike the Spectrum Management Course, the Spectrum Management Forum offers a more detailed discussion on specific spectrum issues. These Spectrum Management Forums maximize the time for reciprocal communication between attendees and our staff, addressing each topic in as much depth as required. The forum may also focus on several spectrum management topics such as: spectrum principles and characteristics; antenna and radio wave propagation principles; spectrum management of space services; microcomputer spectrum analysis model demonstration; NTIA frequency assignment processes and procedures; Spectrum XXI software overview; spectrum management presentations from selected Federal agencies; presentation on the latest spectrum management issues; and, solving spectrum management problems.

United States Telecommunications Training Institute (USTTI)
 Radio Frequency Spectrum Management Course

Open to Representatives of Developing Nations.

This course addresses the various elements required to plan, organize, manage, and control an effective spectrum management agency with the developing nation in mind. Participants will be introduced to spectrum management principles, national spectrum planning and policy, engineering analysis, and computer-aided techniques. In addition, the course will introduce technological and regulatory changes that have taken place over the past few years.

EL-CID:  Spectrum Certification for Today

Open to U.S. Government Employees and Federal Contractors

The Equipment Location-Certification Information Database (EL-CID) was developed to provide an automated tool to support electronic processing of spectrum certification requests at NTIA. The database structure and design is based upon the new comprehensive database (the OSM Data Dictionary) being developed at NTIA to replace the GMF database that is currently used to support various spectrum management activities, particularly the frequency assignment process.
