Link Microtek certified as a provider of RF safety training

Link Microtek, which is one of the UK's leading suppliers of non-ionising RF safety instrumentation products and services, has been certified by the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) as a provider of RF safety training.

Link's training courses are already recognised by UK telecoms operators and broadcasters, and the IET endorsement means that other potential customers can be confident that they will be receiving professional training from a competent organisation.

To achieve IET certification, the company's personnel and procedures had to undergo rigorous vetting to demonstrate issues such as the competence of its trainers, how the trainers themselves are trained, how the company keeps up to date with new issues, how it obtains and assesses customer feedback and how training material is documented.

Link Microtek is anticipating increased demand for its training courses in the next few years, as the forthcoming EMF Directive stipulates that training will be required for any employee who may be exposed to risks from EMFs. As well as affecting telecoms workers, this will apply to those using, for example, medical scanners, military systems or industrial equipment for induction heating or RF welding.

The IET endorsement covers Link's training courses on RF radiation awareness, basic measurements and survey techniques, which are generally held at the company's headquarters in Basingstoke but can be provided at customers' premises if required.
