Level 3 - STK Grand Master Certification

STK Grand Master Certification expands on the Level 2 Master Certification by breaking STK’s advanced modeling and analytical functions into 7 individual Tracks focused on different application areas.

  • Each Level 3 Track has 5-9 tutorials which in total takes up to 4-8 hours.
  • Like Level 1 and Level 2, all trainees will have 14 days from their registration date to complete each track.
  • Upon completion of any Track, trainees will receive a small glass cube with a randomly selected STK graphic etched inside.
  • Upon completion of at least 4 of the Tracks, trainee will become Level 3 Certified and receive an additional large glass cube with STK graphic and spotlight.
  • Trainees must be Level 1 & Level 2 certified to enroll.

* The L3 STK Grand Master Certification Program is comprised of seven (7) tracks that you can choose from based on your area(s) of expertise or interest. This winter, we’ll be running a virtual training series that will cover one (1) of those tracks in its entirety - STK Communications. Each lesson required for the track will be taught in separate, one to two hour long virtual training classes with a live instructor and AGI Engineers on the line to answer questions in real time. This is a great way to get started on your certification or, if you joined us for the three (3) tracks in our Summer Series, you can complete this 4th track and earn the title of STK Grand Master. If you haven't done so, you can complete the three (3) tracks from the Summer Series!

  • Track 1: STK Essentials

    This Level 3 Track covers the essentials of STK in detail. Trainees will learn in depth how to model chains and constellations, use terrain to constrain analysis, and design sensors.

  • Track 3: STK Coverage

    This L3 Track teaches trainees how to use the Coverage tool. Trainees will learn how to analyze when and how well regions on or above the central body's surface are "covered" by a collection of assets based on a user-defined performance criteria.

  • Track 5: Communications

    This L3 Track teaches trainees how to use the Communications module to model and analyze real-world RF and optical communications. Trainees will begin learning how to model communications objects, progress to learning how to model complex communications systems and multi-hop Comm links, and finish up analyzing communications over rough terrain using TIREM and in urban environments with UProp.
