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. aeroIT 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. Successful candidates receive a renewable aeroIT certification that is valid for three years, per the industry standard.

The aeroIT certification exam is a professional level assessment, 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:

  • Satellite Networks
  • Network Theory
  • Troubleshooting Aircraft Networks
  • Network Management

This training course is approved for eight FAA Inspection Authorization (IA) credits.
