2023 NTIA Spectrum Management Training Classes

Federal Spectrum Management Overview Course

Open to U.S. Government Employees and Federal Contractors ONLY

This class is being presented virtually.  We hope to add in-person sessions in the future

NTIA’s 3-day spectrum management overview class is presented two or more times throughout the year

The 3-day class introduces students to the federal government’s management of spectrum, from the development of spectrum policy through the implementation of systems by the federal agencies.

This class provides a basic level introduction to Federal spectrum management processes, procedures and techniques. The course also includes presentations on spectrum management terminology and resources, and provides a basic overview of spectrum management principles; the NTIA equipment and system certification, and frequency assignment processes and procedures

The next 3-day overview class is tentatively scheduled for January  24-26, 2023. We plan to open registration portal on or about January 2.

We hope to add individual, 1-day classes on specific spectrum management topics as time and resources permit. Additional information on these class offerings will be posted here and on the OSMtraining listserv when they are determined.

Spectrum XXI: Electronic Processing of Spectrum Proposals.

Open to U.S. Government Employees and Federal Contractors

Spectrum XXI (SXXI) provides federal agencies an automated tool to support the electronic processing of spectrum proposals with NTIA. This client/server software facilitates the exchange of frequency assignment requests and supports the frequency assignment process. Spectrum XXI includes several engineering programs, such as point-to-point and coverage plots with terrain features. It includes the required compliance checks that all frequency proposals submitted to NTIA must include.  

Spectrum XXI training is presented as a five day live on-line instructor-led virtual class.

The 2023 Spectrum XXI training schedule is as follows:

January 9-13

 

 

February 6-10

 

February 27 - March 3

April 3-7

 

April 17-21

May 22-26

 

 

June 26-30

 

 

July 10-14

 

 

August 21-22

EL-CID:  Spectrum Certification for Today

The Equipment Location-Certification Information Database (EL-CID) was developed to provide an automated tool to support electronic processing of spectrum certification requests at NTIA. The database structure and design is based upon the comprehensive database (the OSM Data Dictionary) developed at NTIA to replace the GMF database that is currently used to support various spectrum management activities, particularly the frequency assignment process.

EL-CID On-Line (ECO), our new equipment certification software, is expected to be fully operational during the first quarter of 2023.

We offer live virtual instruction using Microsoft Teams periodically throughout the year. Interested persons can sign up for through the ECOHelpdesk.  In-depth video instruction is also available when user clicks HELP on the ECO site.
