PIM Master Certification is only available through Anritsu instructor-led training. PIM Master Passive Intermodulation Measurement Training is an intense one-day instructor led training course that uses the MW82119A series battery-operated, high power, portable, Passive Intermodulation Analyzer to identify the source and exact location of PIM problems.

Students will gain valuable hands on experience using the PIM Master MW82119A and demonstrate the knowledge they've acquired in both a written and practical exam. Everyone who passes this PIM Certification Course will receive a Certificate of Completion along with a photo ID badge.

Prerequisites

It is highly recommended that students prepare for this class by taking Anritsu's free Portable PIM Master eLearning Course

PLEASE NOTE:  This class is NOT for those who are new to line sweeping or PIM testing.  Students with no background in these areas are at a severe disadvantage and unlikely to pass the rigorous tests that certification requires.  If you are new to this industry, we strongly recommend completing our 2-day, instructor-led line sweep certification course.  At a minimum, please complete our free online line sweep (non-certification) course before attending this training.  Completion of recommended training does not guarantee PIM certification.
