Register for ITU and ITSO Training Course on SatCom and Radio Regulations


The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and the International Telecommunications Satellite Organisation (ITSO) are organising a training course on Satellite Communications and Radio Regulations procedure for African and Arab regions.

The training course is part of a capacity-building partnership between ITU and ITSO for delivering satellite communications training. As a result, the training will include the following topics :

  • Basics of satellite communications;
  • Policy and regulatory guidelines for satellite services;
  • Radio Regulations related to satellite orbit and spectrum resources;
  • Network planning and link budget analysis;
  • Earth station and VSAT system; and
  • Radio Regulations related to earth station coordination and registration.

This instructor-led online course addresses policymakers, regulators and operators in the ICTs sector. It also addresses regional and international satellite communications organisations and operators.

The course’s primary objective is to develop awareness amongst individuals, organisations and institutions on policies, regulations, licensing frameworks and technical aspects associated with the provision of satellite communications services. This programme is also an essential component of the ITSO Capacity Building Initiative, which received support from member states and various partnerships. It is intended to offer member states access to basic capabilities and necessary tools to support the continuous development and effective use of satellite communications services.
