RF Boot Camp for Radio Engineers


The mobile phone industry in Australia has grown at a phenomenal rate in the past ten years. There are now more mobile phones than people and the escalating use of mobile broadband, facilitated by innovations such as the iPhone are stressing the ability of the operators to support the required bandwidth.

Despite this growth graduate engineers find it difficult to secure positions as they lack experience in the processes and the software tools commonly used in the industry.

TeleResources is one of the few independent Australian engineering companies focused on this sector. We are the exclusive distributor of Atoll™ the radio planning tool used by large operators such as Telstra and VHA. We are also the provider of Signal™ used by many government and private sector broadcasters and mobile radio networks. Our engineers have been involved in the design of the latest 3G networks as well as emerging technologies such as WiMAX.

For this reason we have often been sought out by under graduates and graduates alike wanting to get experience with our tools. However our ability to provide support for interns has been limited and the value they have obtained from the period spent with us has been heavily dependent on the time we have been able to spare.

Consequently we have decided to offer a more structured program. A program condensed into three intensive weeks where students will get hands on training on the tools used by wireless network operators giving them a competitive advantage when they apply for work. The three weeks may be taken individually or in combination.

Target audience:

  • Graduate Engineers looking for a career in Radio Network planning and Optimization or
  • RF Engineers with less than 1 year’s experience.

The benefits that attendees will enjoy include:

  • An industry view of the operators and their vendors
  • An understanding of typical jobs available for radio engineers
  • Practical hands-on training using the software employed by the
    majority of operators
  • The opportunity to participate in drive testing and data analysis
  • Designing and optimising an example network
  • A certificate of completion showing that they have received
    training covering the design of GSM, UMTS

Course Feess:

  • $2,000 (including GST for individuals, excluding GST for companies)
  • $1,500 (Group buy, group of at least four)
