global employers a certifiable means for gauging the qualifications of
To qualify for the IEEE Wireless Communication professional (WCP)
credential, individuals with a bachelor's or comparable degree from an
accredited institution and at least three years of professional wireless
engineering experience must pass the comprehensive examination. Administered on computer at selected worldwide locations, the official IEEE WCET exam is composed of 150 multiple choice questions. Applicants are given up to four hours to complete the exam.
The $500 fee ($450 for IEEE and IEEE ComSoc members) covers the
application, processing fees and "seat fee" for taking the test. A
certificate is sent to those who pass the exam. In addition, a 75-question
practice exam can be purchased online by communications professionals who
would like to gauge their preparedness for the official exam prior to the
next testing period. Each practice exam consists of questions reviewed by
IEEE WCET subject-matter experts and can be taken up to four times by a
single individual prior to sitting for the official IEEE WCET exam.
