The Tait Radio Academy is on a mission to give the world free educational content about Critical Communications. Each day, new Radio Managers, Communication technicians, and IT Specialists are being put in charge of Critical Communication networks. Our aim is to ensure they are equipped to manage those networks well, to know when to replace or upgrade equipment, and how to keep their people safe and connected through networks that stay online.

Courses are written by experts with decades of industry experience in education and radio technology. Each course consists of several short videos, written text, a pdf study guide, and an exam to test your knowledge.

We regularly update the site with new courses. We highly recommend that you join the Radio Academy. Once in, you will be notified of all new courses and gain access to exclusive content.

If you have questions or suggestions for future courses, please leave a comment or post in our LinkedIn Discussion Group.
