Under close cooperation between ITU and ITSO, the online basic course program âSatellite Communications and Radio Regulations Proceduresâ has been developed and put in place with the primary objective of raising awareness amongst individuals, organizations and institutions on policies, regulations, licensing frameworks and technical aspects associated with the provision of satellite communications services. This program is part of the ITU and also of ITSO Capacity Building Initiatives. Those initiatives have been supported by Member States and various partners.
The SMTP is designed for individuals within ICT and telecommunications sectors who wish to enhance their knowledge and competence in the area of spectrum management. This includes engineers and managers working in telecommunications regulatory authorities, ICT service providers and other ICT stakeholders. Policy makers in ministries and government departments responsible for ICTs will also benefit from this programme. This module will provide students with an understanding of the management of radio spectrum related to satellite communications systems.
