IEEE ComSoc Launches Program
June 4, 2008

The Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc) has launched a new program to certify the competency, practical knowledge and skills of wireless communications professionals.

The IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program has been specifically designed by IEEE ComSoc to address the worldwide wireless industry’s growing and ever-evolving need for qualified communications professionals who can demonstrate practical problem-solving skills in real-world situations.

To qualify for the IEEE WCET designation, engineers with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and at least three years of wireless engineering experience must pass a detailed comprehensive examination developed by more than 100 industry experts and experienced wireless practitioners.

IEEE WCET Certification examination is administered on computer. The first testing period is scheduled for late September 2008 at more than 500 testing sites located in 75 countries with the next testing period slated for March 2009.

The IEEE WCET Certification program fee is $500. In the coming months, IEEE ComSoc will also launch a set of resources designed specifically to help participants prepare for the examination.

A Candidate Handbook for the IEEE WCET certification program containing policies, complete details of the subject areas covered, reference sources, sample questions, application procedures and contact information will be available free-of-charge through IEEE ComSoc.

For more information on the IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies Certification Program (IEEE WCET) contact: Jean Niblett, IEEE Communications Society, 3 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016. Phone: (212) 705-8913.
