IEEE WCET expands exam application deadline
August 13, 2009 -- The IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program has extended the application deadline to October 1, 2009 for its Fall testing period, which will be held October 12 -31 at more than 300 locations worldwide.
August 13, 2009 -- The IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program has extended the application deadline to October 1, 2009 for its Fall testing period, which will be held October 12 -31 at more than 300 locations worldwide. The IEEE WCET program was developed by the IEEE Communications Society and an international collection of industry experts to provide professionals with a globally-recognized credential that delineates wireless communications expertise in a competitive, multinational marketplace.
In addition to the expanded deadline, learning resources have been developed to help individuals planning to take the IEEE WCET examination. An online tutorial focused on WCET Area 3 – Network and Service Architecture is available through the IEEE WCET web site. The tutorial, which takes about 3.5 hours to complete, is divided into four main parts and includes a brief introduction of Area 3 task and knowledge statements. Two additional online tutorials highlighting other prominent IEEE WCET domain areas are also expected to be available in the coming months.
"IEEE WCET certification is increasingly becoming a preeminent method for demonstrating a thorough knowledge of key wireless technologies, global market implications and the ongoing development of new standards and applications," says Celia Desmond, IEEE WCET program director. "The program was also designed to foster a much greater and deeper understanding of the broad-based opportunities available within the wireless field, while establishing a platform for success in any number of industrial, military and government positions."
To further support the program, a full day of IEEE WCET examination training will be held on September 17 at 4G World 2009 in Chicago, Ill. Titled "IEEE Wireless Certification Exam Preparation" and led by Javan Erfanian of IEEE ComSoc, the one-day course was prepared to provide a higher understanding of end-to-end wireless communications technologies from a combination of engineering, architectural, standards, operational and management perspectives. Specific areas covered will include radio engineering, wireless access technologies and standards, networks and service architecture, network management and security, as well as infrastructure, agreements, operational standards, policies, regulations and relevant engineering concepts.
