“Virtual Intensive Course on Wireless Communications Engineering” to be Held 26 – 30 September 2011 by IEEE ComSoc Training

Group Rates Available for Online Session Dedicated to Wireless Network Operations, Technology Implementations & Overall System Design

New York, NY, September 08, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the leading worldwide professional organization dedicated to the advancement of communications technologies, will hold its next “Virtual Intensive Course on Wireless Communications Engineering” from 26 – 30 September 2011. Registration and detailed course information is available at www.comsoc.org/training. Group rates are available for companies interested in registering employees in either or both the five-day online course and the IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET®) Certification Exam to be held 2 – 29 October 2011 at Prometric testing centers worldwide.

The “Virtual Intensive Course on Wireless Communications Engineering” was developed by IEEE ComSoc Training to provide communications engineering professionals with a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in wireless communications, including network operations, technology implementations and overall system design. It can also help IEEE WCET Certification Program candidates identify “need areas” in preparation of the exam held bi-annually in the spring and fall. Individuals who register for the five-day online course by 9 September 2011 will save $100 on the fee, which is $625 for IEEE ComSoc members and $725 for non-members. Information on multi-seat package rates can be obtained by emailing m.catis@comsoc.org.

Scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT on Monday, 26 September through Friday 30 September, the “Virtual Intensive Course on Wireless Communications Engineering” touches on the seven key subject areas covered within the IEEE WCET examination. It does not specifically teach the exam, but rather it was developed for professionals with a broad engineering and/or technology background, who would also like to achieve a deeper understanding of current technologies, operations and future developments.

The course is taught by Javan Erfanian, an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer, and Daniel Wong, president of Daniel Wireless, LLC, both of whom are editors of the Wireless Engineering Body of Knowledge survey text. Each daily session includes two, two-hour lectures separated by a two-hour break designed to facilitate learning and allow registrants to prepare instructor questions. The weeklong training covers access technologies, network & service architecture, network management & security, facilities infrastructure, and agreements, standards and policies. In addition to the course handout and a copy of the Wireless Engineering Body of Knowledge, each course registrant will earn two IEEE Continuing Education Units upon completion.

Other upcoming learning opportunities include the “The Future of Wireless: Nanotechnology and Practical Wireless Communications,” a one-day course to be held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, 25 October at 4G World in Chicago, Illinois. Taught by Javan Erfanian, this in-person lecture explores the anatomy of future wireless systems and networks, M2M communications and sensing, e-health care, smart transportation and the impact of nanotechnology on wireless communications engineering. Individuals who register by 30 September will receive a $100 rebate on the $1,195 registration fee.
