Any organization with a commitment to excellence in satellite communications is eligible to apply for the GVF Accredited Organization for Training (GVF AO/T) certification. Holding GVF AO/T means that your organization maintains a well-trained staff and subcontractor roster through rigorous training relevant to their duties.
To apply, review the AOT program details then complete the application spreadsheet, and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review your trainee list against the GVF training database, confirm that appropriate training or certifications are held, and respond back to you with an accreditation report. There is no charge for AO/T accreditation, other than for any required staff training.
GVF offers a wide range of certifications in several subject areas. Certifications in the Fixed VSAT (V) area require you to pass the Basic Hands On Skills Test (HOST-B) as well as specific online courses. Other certifications may be completed entirely online by passing the relevant learning courses and exams, which include simulator skills tests.
