IEEE WCET® Announces Spring 2011 Testing Period
February 18, 2011

The next testing cycle for the IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET®) Certification Program Examination has been announced as 20th March to 16th April 2011. Introduced by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) in 2008, the IEEE WCET Program is dedicated to certifying the expertise of wireless communications professionals worldwide. All interested individuals are urged to visit the newly refreshed IEEE WCET website at for the latest program updates and to register for the next test period by the deadline of 4th March 2011.

In addition, IEEE ComSoc has announced several new virtual and in-person training programs designed to help professionals expand their overall knowledge of wireless communications engineering practices. The next in-person training sessions on “Practical Wireless Communications Engineering” will be held March 7th at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE 2011) in Las Vegas, Nevada and April 15th at the 30th IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications (IEEE INFOCOM 2011) in Shanghai, China.

Each full-day course offers high-level, end-to-end information on current wireless communications technologies and practices from a combination of engineering, architectural, operational, standards and management perspectives. Recommended for a broad audience of professionals with an engineering background, the sessions were also developed to provide a comprehensive overview of how different facets of the wireless field fit into the overall design, implementation and operation of wireless networks. For more information please visit

From March 21st – 25th, 2011, IEEE ComSoc will also offer a five-day intensive virtual course on wireless communications engineering designed to cover technology basics as well as offer a comprehensive review of RF engineering, propagation, antennas, and signal processing; wireless access technologies; network and service architecture; network management and security; facilities infrastructure; agreements, standards, policies and regulations; and fundamental knowledge. These are the seven technical areas on which the WCET program is based. Additional course details and registration information can be found at

The US$500 fee ($450 for IEEE and IEEE ComSoc members) covers the application, processing charges and “seat fee” for taking the test. 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.

For more information on the IEEE WCET program or to obtain the latest edition of The Wireless Communications Professional® e-newsletter, a free copy of the Candidate’s Handbook or the new ComSoc Guide to Managing Telecommunications Projects, please visit Additional program details can also be obtained from Marilyn Catis at
