IEEE ComSoc Offers New Online Training Course

NEW YORK - The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the leading professional organization dedicated to the advance of communications technologies worldwide, is offering a combination package providing seats to its next 5-day online course on “Wireless Communications Engineering Intermediate Fundamentals Review & Current Practices” (held July 23 – 27) and the Fall IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies Certification Exam, (scheduled from September 7 to October 27). Additional details can be found here.

“IEEE ComSoc Training is dedicated to helping the world’s wireless communications professionals continue their growth in this ever-expanding global marketplace,” says IEEE WCET Program Director Rulei Ting. “This special offer combines two of our greatest assets – the delivery of unsurpassed industry knowledge and the ability to certify real-world, problem-solving skills with an internationally accepted credential of their expertise.”

Covering all seven areas tested on the IEEE WCET Certification exam, the 5-day online course is recommended for professionals with an engineering or technology background, and those who have an appreciation for wireless engineering practices. It was specifically developed to provide a comprehensive overview of how different facets of wireless practice fit into the overall design, implementation, and operation of wireless networks.

During each day of the online course, which runs from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and resumes after a two-hour break at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST live from Monday 23 July to Friday 27 July, participants have the ability to interact with instructors through webinar chat functions and test their comprehension of covered material through a series of short quizzes and problems-solving scenarios. The instructors for this next session include Javan Erfanian, an editor and author for the Wireless Engineering Book of Knowledge with nearly 20 years of telecommunications experience, and Daniel Wong, an industry expert with 18 years of wireless, networking and software experience.

The IEEE WCET program was prepared by global wireless industry experts to provide a vendor-neutral method for qualifying the knowledge of individuals in the areas of RF engineering, propagation and antennas; access technologies; network and service architecture; network management and security; facilities infrastructure; agreements, standards, policies and regulations; and fundamental knowledge.

To earn the IEEE WCP credential, individuals must pass the comprehensive IEEE WCET examination, which is composed of 150 multiple choice questions and offered via computer at testing centers worldwide. IEEE ComSoc recommends that candidates have a degree from an accredited college or university and three or more years of graduate-level education or professional wireless communication engineering experience.

Registration at for the July 2012 Virtual 5 Day Training PLUS WCET Exam Seat package ends July 13 for this special offer priced at $950 for IEEE and IEEE ComSoc members and $1100 for nonmembers. The package also includes a free online IEEE WCET practice exam as well as the 5-day virtual course’s instructional slides and the Guide to the Wireless Engineering Body of Knowledge (WEBOK) published by John Wiley & Sons.
