Corgan Enterprises now offers a two-day, on-site training course for
beginning and intermediate GNU Radio software and USRP users.

The format is a combined lecture/lab session covering topics such as:

  • Introduction to Software Defined Radio and basic Digital Signal
    Processing concept review

  • Overview of GNU Radio, including software data-flow architecture and
    available functionality

  • Overview of the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP), including
    hardware design, FPGA block diagram, daughterboard selection and use,
    and GNU Radio support

  • Walk-through explanation and demonstration of several existing GNU
    Radio examples, with and without using the USRP

  • Participating in the GNU Radio community, using the various tools on
    the website and accessing the mailing list.

The lab portion of the class covers:

  • How to install and create a working development system - get
    productive quickly

  • How to create new GNU Radio applications in Python using existing
    building blocks

  • How to write new signal processing blocks in C++ (advanced users)

Course content can be customized based on your individual needs,
availability of development workstations at your site, and number of
participants.

This training is given by Johnathan C., the GNU Radio release
manager, repository manager, and a lead contributor.

Hello,

Sounds interesting. Is there any off-site training for GNU Radio and
USRP? Maybe in connection with DCC or other event? Somehow I think
on-site training for one person will be rather expensive. 8)

I’m not aware of anything formal that exists now.

Eric, Matt, and I are looking into it and trying to judge demand for a
“deep immersion” class that goes beyond just GNU Radio/USRP and more
fully covers SDR, DSP, and RF design in general, using GR/USRP as
teaching aids.

Hello,

I am interested. I have just enough knowledge of SDR, DSP, and RF to be
interested in using it but not enough to really do anything useful.
Within two months is the 20 year mark of my employment at my current
employer and I was thinking of asking for a sabbatical for professional
development. Classes would be great.

I would be very interested in off site training with the rough outline
you have below. Web-based distance education would be great. I am
possibly one of two people interested in Gnu Radio in my organization.
On site training would be difficult to justify to the bean counters for
just two people.

I agree with Ranga. Web based distance learning would
be great. I am over on the east coast and probably
the only person interested in USRP at this time for my
company, so face to face training is out of the
question.
