Results Announced for 1st-Ever IEEE WCET Certification
January 9, 2009

The IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc) has announced the results for the first-ever IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program examination held last fall. The next IEEE WCET testing period is scheduled from March 16th to April 4th, 2009 with the application deadline ending February 28th, 2009.

According to Professional Examination Service (PES), nearly 84 percent of those completing the IEEE WCET examination earned a passing grade. The exam, which consists of 150 multiple-choice questions encompassing seven key and distinct wireless areas, was developed and conducted under the guidance of PES in addition to including the input of thousands of volunteers and wireless industry experts from around the world.

Interested professionals are urged to visit the IEEE-WCET website for program information and updates including eligibility requirements, testing dates and locations, application information including deadlines, examination specifications, links to training organizations, and free resources such as a glossary, a list of references, and sample questions for helping candidates thoroughly prepare for the exam.

Other resources available to support the IEEE WCET program include free subscriptions to the bi-monthly IEEE Wireless Communications Professional electronic newsletter and a free Candidate’s Handbook covering policies, subject area details, reference sources, and sample questions. In the coming weeks, the draft Wireless Engineering Body of Knowledge (WEBOK) book, which outlines the scope of wireless technologies and cites numerous wireless communication reference sources, will be available free-of-charge in pdf format to anyone applying for the IEEE WCET certification.

To receive a free copy of the Candidate’s Handbook visit the IEEE-WCET website.
