The Satcom Direct aeroIT certification is an information technology certification for the configuration and troubleshooting of networks and SATCOM systems onboard an aircraft. Identifying a need in the industry based on the rising demand for onboard internet access, Satcom Direct’s team of IT and SATCOM experts created this certification to meet that demand. aeroIT is a professional credential, not just a certificate, and is similar and complementary to the Network+ certification, an industry standard for IT networking professionals. Candidates must complete the coursework and pass the proctored exam. Successful candidates receive a renewable aeroIT certification that is valid for three years, per the industry standard.
aeroIT is a professional level exam, on par with a Net+ skill set. Prior to the exam, the recommended prerequisite experience is 2 years aviation training with basic knowledge of networking (how to set up a router, etc.). The aeroIT exam focuses on four areas:
