IEEE WCET Offers New Practice Exam
July 31, 2008

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc), the leading worldwide professional organization dedicated to the advancement of communications technologies, has expanded the resources for its IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program with a new practice examination available to communications professionals at In addition, the official testing application deadline has been extended to August 15th, 2008 for the upcoming test period scheduled for September 22nd, 2008 to October 10, 2008 at more than 500 testing sites located in 75 countries.

The IEEE WCET Program was developed by IEEE ComSoc and an international collection of industry experts to address the worldwide wireless industry’s growing need for professionals with real-world problem-solving skills. It was also designed to provide professionals with a quantifiable method for demonstrating expertise in the wireless field as new opportunities develop worldwide.

The 75-question practice examination offers communications professionals the opportunity to gauge their preparedness for the 150-question IEEE WCET exam before the testing period begins in September. Each practice examination consists of questions reviewed by IEEE WCET subject-matter experts and was developed with the same methodology used to prepare the certification exam.

Available online for a fee of $75, the practice examination can be taken up to four times by a single individual prior to sitting for the official IEEE WCET exam. Test results are provided both as an overall score and by reporting the number of items answered correctly within each of the seven major areas of expertise. Scores are confidential and can only be accessed by the individual using secure ID and PIN numbers.

To earn the IEEE WCET certified designation, candidates must pass the official IEEE WCET certification exam as well as have a bachelor’s or comparable degree from an accredited institution and at least three years of professional wireless engineering experience. Both the practice exam and the certification exam consist of multiple-choice questions encompassing the wireless areas of RF engineering, propagation and antennas; access technologies; network and service architecture; network management and security; facilities infrastructure; agreements, standards, policies and regulations; and fundamental knowledge.
