VSATs are key components of modern telecommunications networks in Africa. The low cost and rapid deployment characteristics of VSAT systems have made them a natural choice for solving the telecommunication need that is growing fast in Africa. VSAT continues to provide opportunities for telephone, video, and Internet services.

The Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Course provides the knowledge and hands-on experience necessary to install, operate, and maintain VSAT systems. 

It is for people who desire to start a new career in VSAT technology or those who want to expand their current skill base in related areas. Most participants were thrilled to be put through in a professional manner on the fundamentals of VSAT technology. Nothing could beat the satisfaction of installing, testing and operating VSAT in a live environment.

Since QKON is an accredited Cisco and Panamsat partner, that has completed VSAT and wireless connectivity projects in over 27 African countries. This is the ONLY event in Africa that brings VSAT value, learning, networking and opportunity together in one place. Do you want to be part of the current and future African Telecom boom? You MUST attend this event.

Panamsat Registration

At the end of the program all participants were registered with registered Q-KON as well as Panamsat, the world's premier satellite services company. Q-KON has completed projects in 27 of the Sub-Sahara countries and its engineering expertise is internationally acknowledged. Apart from the hands-on skills one acquires, this unique event makes it possible to become a Certified VSAT Installer. It's no wonder many attend the event from all of Africa.

An Excellent Networking Event

But it wasn't just a learning opportunity. What do you have when you have Engineers, VSAT providers, Consultants, Investors, ICT trainers, Vendors and new entrants to ICT all in one place? And with participants and facilitators from all over Africa? A great networking forum for the ICT industry! Networking opportunities were created as participants developed new contacts and prospects during the event. As a networking forum it threw up opportunities to build strategic partnerships and relationships. The atmosphere was one of sharing information, learning and communicating. Indeed it was also tagged "right meeting place for positive career and business growth". 

But don't just take our word for it, let's hear from the participants about the recent training exercise:

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.



Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.



You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.



But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.



"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.



Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.



GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.



What is the use of ideas without action?



Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
