Radio industry training and awards
By Corey Weir, Chairman, RFUANZ

I am pleased to advise that the annual Gala Dinner for the RFUANZ will once again be held at Te Papa in Wellington, on Wednesday, 6 May, in conjunction with the Comms Connect conference and exhibition to be held at the Lower Hutt Events Centre on 6–7 May.
We will soon be calling for nominations for our annual industry awards. Each year the high calibre of these nominees makes it more and more difficult for the judges, which of course is a good thing. To ensure that your nomination or nominee is well represented, it’s important you are aware of the criteria for each award when submitting nominations.
You can find information about the awards, including categories and nomination procedures, at rfuanz.org.nz/2020-rfuanz-industry-excellence-awards.
RFUANZ is working with the Australian Radio Communications Industry Association (ARCIA) to provide two half-day training courses, which are part of ARCIA’s accredited training program. The workshops will include theory and practical components and cover the following topics:
GIS mapping and fundamentals — an overview of the fundamental principles of geographic information systems, including data representation, standards, systems, software and applications.
Antenna and multi-coupling designs — giving industry professionals targeted, industry-specific training as it relates to multicoupling, to enhance their professional learning and development pathways.
The workshop is designed to encourage RFUANZ members and newcomers into becoming approved radio certifiers. The duration will be approximately six hours. Should you have any questions or want to know more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Criteria on how to become an approved radio engineer or certifier can be found on the RSM website at rsm.govt.nz/engineers-and-examiners/how-to-become-an-approved-radio-engineer-or-certifier/.
