(Washington, D.C.) - Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai today announced his appointments to serve on two Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC) Working Groups: (1) the Broadband Infrastructure Deployment Job Skills and Training Opportunities Working Group, and (2) the Increasing Broadband Investment in Low-Income Communities Working Group.

RSI Corp is a national company which specializes in radiofrequency (RF) radiation and telecom safety.
When you start shopping around and enroll your team, be careful not to simply pick one that is quick and cheap. If you are in need for RF Safety Certification, you have a few choices. Some companies provide you with a course you can take in 20 minutes and get a piece of paper but is that what you want for your crew?
Radiofrequency energy, or RFE, is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, (OSHA), and has been deemed a physical hazard. In March of 2013, the FCC voted for an advanced review on various rules pertaining to implementation of National Environmental Protection Act, (NEPA), requirements in relation to RFE from radio transmission sites.
