We’re happy to announce the addition of a new course to the Tait Radio Academy. In this series of lessons we take a look at Best Practice for Radio Users. Even the most advanced communication technology is rendered useless by not knowing how to use it properly. This course focuses on end-user training for connecting and communicating clearly, safely, and efficiently on your radio. It’s a great course for users in all industries.
It is essential that mission-critical radio users have good training. Using your radio properly brings the following benefits:
- Increased safety through quick and clear communication
- More efficient operations
- More available time for others to communicate
- Less frustration for users in general
Despite this, many users get little-to-no training on the proper etiquette and principles of using a radio properly. No one wants unhappy users, so we’ve put together this short course to go through the best practices for radio usage. In this course, you will learn the following:
- How to use the radio
- Tips and tricks for efficient, clear communication
- How to be considerate of others on your network
- How to ensure your radio stays working
Lesson 1: Get Connected
We’ll explore when to press the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button, when to speak, and how to perform regular radio checks to ensure you always stay connected.
Lesson 2: Clear, Efficient Communications
Once you’ve connected to the person or people you need to communicate with, it’s important to keep communications clear and efficient. Here’s how.
Lesson 3: Final Assessment
Once you have completed all the lessons, you can take this final assessment to earn a Tait Radio Academy completion certificate in Best Practice for Radio Users.
This lesson and many more like it can be found on the Tait Radio Academy, an online school providing free, informative content to radio users around the world.
