Very helpful for installers
to retake this course, which is very helpful
This course provides an excellent introduction to the nascent avionics technician and will upgrade the skill set of an experienced avionics technician with respect to the ADS-B system.
Excellent class, gives good overview and detail of ADS-B installation, testing and troubleshooting.
overall, the class was good
Overall good information for the beginner
Great insight into ADS-B systems.
That it is very important to take it in order to find easy mistakes that are pretty easy to fix in order to avoid FAA letters for our customers
Excellent for beginners and seasoned avionics techs
A good course to take
Go take it, knowing why and how the system was implemented helps understanding where its going
A must attend

Great course... take it!!!
It's a great course that explains not only the basics about ADS-B configuration but also explains in depth the ADS-B Testing procedures and troubleshooting
Bring some snacks
Valuable information for understanding the concept of ADS-B, and making troubleshooting easier.
Good class. Take notes.
It is worth it to take this course even if you have a lot of experience. Instructors and other students always have scenarios that most other people do not encounter. Sharing this information is great for this course.
Definitely needed for young avionics technicians, and for the experienced, it is an excellent refresher with additional information you probably don't know already and surely will need.
A must for new avionics techs!
Instructor was very knowledgeable and easy to follow
It was very informative for technicians that are already experienced. It would be harder for someone just getting into avionics.
Prepare for a lot of ADS-B info
Pay attention lots of information
You will learn ADS-B
It is a good overview. Be sure to come into the course with, at minimum, a broad or basic knowledge base of ADS-B
If you want to learn everything about ADS-B take this class
A good class for techs of all experience levels
You cannot miss it, it guides you on technical documentation, to solve faults, certainty about the 19 parameters that must be checked.
This is a great class that will help everyone with ADS-B. Even if you think you know the system, this class will teach you something.
Good stuff! Instructor knows his stuff.
I would say they need to ask questions. The more questions they would ask during the class, the more information they will get out of it. For instance, one of my classmates was able to get me the part number for the antenna coupler so I can see about getting one of our work area.
This is a great introduction to ADS-B. A lot better than reading from a textbook.
Very good course for techs new to ADS-B system and also helpful as a refresher course to aid in troubleshooting existing installations.
If you wish to learn the correct and regulatory procedure to install, troubleshoot and certify ADS-B avionics installations, look no further. This AEA course is specifically designed for you!
Staff was very knowledgeable of the topics discussed, don't hesitate to ask questions. If an answer isn't immediately known, every effort will be made to find you the answer.
that this course is highly recommended as it analyzes the important points of the system update ADS-B-Out.
Well worth the time and money
I will recommend it

Very helpful tool to learn how ADS-B works
