Training Classes
Primus Electronics is proud to have teamed up with Kaelus to o er the following cer  ca on courses in the tower industry:
Portable PIM Test Equipment Training & Cer  ca on
E ec ve Passive Intermodula on (PIM) tes ng requires knowledge, prac cal skills, and properly maintained test equipment. Kaelus o ers a variety of training op ons that teach engineers, technicians, and installa on crews the skills needed to construct and maintain “low PIM” RF infrastructure.
Non-Cer  ca on PIM Training (Level 0):
4 Hours
Introductory training classes are available that provide an overview of PIM tes ng that is suited for audiences with a broad range of technical skills. This class de nes PIM in easy-to-understand terms, iden  es typical PIM sources, and describes how to safely operate PIM test equip- ment to repair RF infrastructure.
A endees should include: RF design engineers, RF op miza on engineers, Site maintenance technicians, Management, Installa on project leaders, Installa on technicians, and PIM Test Technicians
Cer  ca on PIM Training (Level 1):
Technician Cer  ca on training classes are also available that include a prac cal, as well as wri en exam requiring students to demonstrate test pro ciency and show that they have an understanding of the course materials presented. Class size for technician cer  ca on training is limited to ensure that each student receives su cient  me with the instructor and the test equipment. Cer  ca on training is recommended for individuals who lead PIM test crews or who perform PIM tes ng in the  eld as a job requirement.
A endees should include: Site maintenance technicians and PIM test technicians
