EMC, a satellite communications provider in Florida, has recently signed a site license agreement with the Global VSAT Forum (GVF) that will provide the company’s technical personnel access to the full suite of SatProf’s leading VSAT satellite communications training material.
Under the agreement, EMC will pursue the GVF Accredited Organisation for Training (AO/T) status, which the VSAT industry recognises as a standard of excellence. The EMC operations and engineering team will train its field engineers and network operations centre technicians globally through the GVF learning system, developed and administered by SatProf.
The EMC program will differ from others because the company plans to augment the standard GVF training curriculum with its own exclusive training content. Employees will be able to access it through the GVF learning system. EMC maintains its own on-staff, GVF-qualified examiners, enabling staff to complete their GVF Hands-On Skills Test (HOST). During which, EMC will continue to offer its customers hands-on training at its training centres in its Miramar, Florida headquarters and at its Raisting, Germany teleport.
Chris Rivera, chief operations officer at EMC said, “The training license agreement with GVF will help us sustain the highest levels of technical competence for our service and support offices. This is critical in the value, only we can deliver our customers while making them EMC Connected.
David Hartshorn, secretary general of GVF added, “We are excited about EMC participating in this industry-leading program. EMC is the largest consumer of satellite capacity outside the U.S. and Europe. This is an excellent avenue for the company to deliver the most optimised, efficient connectivity solutions to its customer base of some of the leading private and public sectors in the world.”
