EMI/EMC Training Courses by TONEX

EMC/EMI Training Courses by TONEX, Applied Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) training course serves as a technical program to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI). It is a technical overview of many topics.

Tonex Applied EMC/EMI course is applicable to professional engineers and technicians practicing in EMC fields to include bonding, grounding, shielding, EMI prediction, EMI analysis, conducted and radiated interference, lightning protection and more.

Learn about the requirements that commercial and military electronic systems must meet to get certified. Master techniques that can be used to protect systems against these threats. Explore unconventional high power EM threats, including nuclear electromagnetic pulse and high power microwave weapons (optional topics).

In a nutshell, Engineers know the math and the physics of EMC. Technicians know the instruments and test setups. Engineers need good writing and verbal skills. Technicians need to know the pitfalls of real measurements. All applicants have to be competent in the fundamentals, i.e., coupling, filters, shielding, etc. as well as the specifications which apply to their particular specialty.
