The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc) has launched a new website providing information, ongoing updates and free resources highlighting its new wireless communication engineering technologies (WCET) certification program.

Unveiled
earlier this year, the program is designed to aid the global wireless
industry’s need for qualified communications professionals with
practical experience and advanced problem-solving skills, says IEEE
ComSoc. It was also developed to help individuals qualify their
expertise in wireless engineering and advance in their careers as new
global opportunities arise. The program may assist an individuals’
ability to make a switch into the wireless field from other engineering
areas.




The IEEE
WCET website highlights program details and benefits to both industry
and wireless professionals. It also offers ongoing updates on
eligibility requirements, testing dates and locations, application
information including deadlines, examination specs, links to training
organizations and free resources such as a glossary, list of references
and sample questions for helping candidates thoroughly prepare for the
exam.




Other
resources that are planned for availability through the IEEE WCET
website include a downloadable version of the Wireless Engineering Body
of Knowledge (WEBOK) and an online practice exam. The WEBOK outlines
the scope of wireless technologies and cites numerous wireless
communication reference sources. The online practice exam consists of
75 questions reviewed by IEEE WCET subject matter experts and can help
individuals gauge their level of preparedness prior to sitting for the
actual exam.
