In this 23-video, entry-level training, CBT Nuggets trainer Bob Salmans covers the knowledge network administrators need to think with and apply electromagnetic theory to understand the physics that go into radio waves enabling advanced technologies.

There’s one underlying technology that makes every part of computing and networking possible, and that’s electromagnetism. If you’re the kind of network administrator who’s not satisfied until you understand all the whats, hows and whys of a technology, this radio frequency training is made to satisfy you.

The way that electromagnetic waves, or radio waves, affect and are affected by the physical world is particularly important for wireless networks, but it’s not irrelevant to wired networks either. This radio frequency training exposes and explains the world of electromagnetic waves. With it, you’ll understand how radio waves pass through the air, what different frequencies are, how radio waves are modulated to carry information, what circuits can do to change that behavior, and why all of that is incredibly important to IT networking.

The three-part series covers topics such as connecting radio frequency theory with bigger-picture IT networking, the underlying physics involved with radio waves, and the relationship between electromagnetic waves and components like transmitters, receivers, filters, etc. as well as:

The three skills that comprise this series are:

  • RF Characteristics and Behavior

  • RF Components and Mathematics

  • Antenna Characteristics and Components

While this training may not map to a certification, it’s still valuable skills training for network administrators looking to learn RF technologies.

Topics this training covers include:

  • Wavelength

  • Antenna Mounting

  • Types of Antennas

  • RF Behaviors

  • How Antennas Work

This training includes:

  • 2 hour of training

  • 23 videos
