This website is intended for the purpose to educate, train, mentor, and coach from entry to management level in wireless site development projects.
In thirty-seven years since the birth of cell phones, a transformation of virtually every aspect of civilization has taken place, from the physical assimilation of hundreds of thousands of cell sites into the landscape of our cities, towns, villages, hamlets, airports, convention centers, malls, sports arenas, college campuses, industrial parks, highways, national forests, ranches, & agricultural fields to the convergence of multiple technologies to provide specialized services using smartphones and machines. Smartphones are used to send and receive electronic mail, take and transmit color photographs and live video, show movies and live sports, manage time, browse the internet, and operate as remote controls, flashlights, compasses, alarm clocks, stopwatches, automated bank tellers, calendars and, occasionally, for talk. Millions of applications have been developed to take advantage of the computing and communications power of smartphones throughout the world.
The economies of the world are currently on the precipice of an unprecedented explosion in the demand for wireless system capacity. While fifth-generation (5G) wireless in the form of ‘small cells’ is reducing the size of equipment at antennas, it is hastening a dramatic increase in the number of cell sites around the world. This is only being made possible through a massive coinciding implementation of fiber optic transport systems to remotely connect small cells with network facilities.
Rules and regulations for siting wireless facilities are in a state-of-transition. This training provides a comprehensive updated view of the past, present, and future factors and trends influencing how wireless facilities are developed. It is the only offering of its kind, an indispensable education for novices to the site acquisition discipline, and an ongoing invaluable resource for existing practitioners.
The Firmly Anchored in Midair(SM) Wireless Site Acquisition and Permitting online training course is designed to enable the participant to achieve competence and certifications in each of seven progressively intensive roles relative to this career activity. Achievement of the designation for each role requires multiple certifications.
Below is a list of training levels regarding wireless site development, as well as further detail about specific courses required to achieve competence at each discipline level. The courses are being finalized in 2020 toward a launch in Fall 2020.
