ASAPS Course

Many people use ASAPS software but are not aware of all the software's capabilities. SWS offers in-house training that takes the user through exercises on ASAPS' capabilities and the interpretation of GRAFEX, Field Strength and Area predictions.

At the end of the training, the user should have an understanding of the prediction types and navigation within the software, as well as being able to interpret the results.

ASAPS courses are organised on request only. For more information, or, to organise an ASAPS course, please contact SWS Training.
