We are pleased to announce that the development of the “Spectrum Management Training Programme” is coming to an end. Soon we will start pilot testing the developed modules before  embarking on full delivery.

The Spectrum Management Training Programme is a new programme being developed under the auspices of the ITU Academy. It comprises of a set of high level training materials in all areas of Spectrum Management and covers a full range of topics, which were developed by experts drawn from within and outside ITU.



The development of this programme is being coordinated by the Human Capacity Building division within the Projects Support and Knowledge Management department of the ITU’s Telecommunications Development Bureau (BDT), in close collaboration with BDT’s focal point for the Spectrum Management and Radiocommunication Bureau (BR), subject matter experts, academia representatives and other stakeholders.

We are confident that this programme will establish itself as the global “golden standard” for Spectrum Management training.This is the first in a series of training programmes to be developed under the ITU Academy. The ITU Academy was launched in October 2012 as the lead agent for all ITU human capacity-building activities. It was created to respond to the growing demand for knowledge and skills in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) training. In particular, it was established to offer a wide and growing range of general and specialized courses on all aspects of telecommunications in Radiocommunication, Telecommunication Standardization and Telecommunication Development.


The SMTP comprises of two levels Basic and Advanced. Each level includes a number of obligatory (OM) and elective (EM) modules which are the following:

OM1 “Legal Basis and Regulatory Framework of Spectrum Management”;
OM2 “Spectrum Engineering Fundamentals”;
OM3 “Wireless Telecommunications Technologies”;
EM1-1: “Spectrum Monitoring”;
EM1-2: “Enforcement and Type Approval of Equipment”;
EM1-3: “SM for Satellite Systems”;
EM1-4: “SM for HF Systems, Science, Maritime and Amateur Services”;
EM1-5: “SM for Aeronautical and Radio Determination Services and Military Systems”;
EM1-6: “Computer-aided Spectrum Management”;
OM4 “Economic and Market Tools of Spectrum Management”;
OM5 “Strategic Planning and Policies for Wireless Innovation”;
EM2-1 (Legal Specialization): “Advanced Spectrum Authorization Regimes”;
EM2-2 (Legal Specialization):“Socio-Economic Impact of Spectrum Regulation; Competition and Consumer Protection”;
EM2-3 (Technical Specialization): “Terrestrial TV Broadcasting Planning and Digital Transition”;
EM2-4 (Technical Specialization): “Opportunistic Spectrum Access and Cognitive Radio”.




We wish to invite all stakeholders, especially training and academic institutions to partner with us. Partnerships can be established in the following ways: 


1.- Participation in the programme delivery
2.- Accreditation/certification of the programme.
