CloudRF training

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

Benjamin Franklin

Radio is complicated

Teaching physics for an invisible medium is not easy. Using CloudRF you can give students and employees friendly tools to apply theory and learn quicker. As a technology agnostic platform the service is ideal for students learning the antenna theory and RF fundamentals. It is already used by many forward-looking institutes for training of individuals and groups.

Tools for novices, not scientists

Most RF modelling tools are unsuitable for students, especially novices. Complex interfaces, menus within menus and options for advanced protocols all add up to a large training cost with minimal benefit.

A tool should be easy to pick up and learn. This is reflected in our own documentation and training which is bite size by design with tool-tips in interfaces and searchable documentation. The days of attending a week long course to learn overly complex software by rote are thankfully in the past.

Virtual Training packages

You can buy virtual training by the hour and shape the syllabus to match your requirements within the scope of our API and interfaces. For a quick start on the interface, an hour will get you up and running. To get proficient with our interface tools and options like antennas and clutter we recommend 4 hours (1/2 a day). For advanced use of the analysis features and automatic API processing the advanced package will cover both the interface and the API.

On site training

Virtual training has its limits so if you would us to deliver CloudRF training in person, this is possible. You will need to provide laptops and internet access and we will do the rest. Get in touch via to discuss your requirement. We would charge a reasonable daily rate and T & S.

Group bookings

The CloudRF service is available every hour of the day for teachers and students. You can test for free below 1GHz and for schools we can setup role based student accounts for 1 month or 1 year – whatever is required.

On premises software

As well as Cloud services we sell a private instance of the service called SOOTHSAYER which you can read about here.
