The Satcom Direct aeroIT certification is an information technology certification for the configuration and troubleshooting of networks and satcom systems onboard an aircraft. Identifying a need in the industry based on the rising demand for onboard internet access, Satcom Direct’s team of IT and satcom experts created this certification to meet that demand. It is a professional credential offered via a partnership with CompTIA, the leading provider of vendor-neutral IT certifications. aeroIT is not just a certificate, and is similar and complementary to the Network+ certification, an industry standard for IT networking professionals. Candidates must complete the coursework and pass the proctored exam through Pearson Vue, the leading provider of global computer-based testing solutions for information technology, academic, government, and professional examinations. Successful candidates receive a renewable aeroIT certification that is valid for three years, per the industry standard.
aeroIT is a professional level exam, on par with a Net+ skill set. Prior to the exam, the recommended prerequisite experience is 2 years aviation training with basic knowledge of networking (how to set up a router, etc.). The aeroIT exam focuses on four areas:
