IEEE ComSoc Combines 5 Day Intensive Wireless Communications Course with 2014 Fall WCET Exam in 2 for 1 Training Package

New York, New York, June 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the leading professional organization dedicated to the advance of communications technologies worldwide, has announced a two for one package that combines the organization's 5 Day Intensive Wireless Training Course with the 2014 Fall IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET®) Certification Exam. The offer provides seating at the IEEE WCET exam held from 6 October to 1 November 2014 at testing centers worldwide as well as enrollment in either of the 5 Day Intensive Wireless Communications Courses taught online via WebEx from 14 July to 18 July 2014 and then again 22 September to 26 September 2014. The application deadline for the IEEE WCET exam ends 19 September 2014.

"Wireless industry opportunities are expanding rapidly worldwide with organizations investing heavily in the strategic recruitment of proven professionals who can demonstrate real-world expertise in practical wireless engineering environments," says IEEE WCET Program Director Rulei Ting. "Individuals who thoroughly understand the complexities associated with the next wave of innovative introductions are greatly increasing their worth in this highly competitive marketplace.

"As a result, the IEEE WCET® certification along with the IEEE ComSoc Training Program have aided global employers and international professionals alike by providing the industry with a globally-recognized credential illustrating expertise across multiple wireless engineering disciplines as well as an ongoing training regimen offering dedicated individuals the knowledge needed to excel and advance in this constantly evolving technological landscape," adds Ting.

Led by Alan Bensky, an IEEE certified Wireless Communication Professional with over 30 years of experience and the author of numerous books on wireless communications, the 5 Day Intensive Wireless Training Course was developed to comprehensively overview wireless network designs, services, applications and operations. It was also specifically-prepared to cover all seven areas of testing on the IEEE WCET Certification exam including 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.

In addition to discounted rates for both the tutorial and exam, professionals purchasing the combined package also receive a free online IEEE WCET practice exam consisting of 75 questions designed to help individuals gauge their preparedness for the official exam; a print copy of the instructors' PowerPoint slides; and a Guide to the Wireless Engineering Body of Knowledge (WEBOK), 2nd edition published by John Wiley & Sons.

The IEEE WCET program was developed by global wireless industry experts to provide a vendor-neutral method for qualifying the wireless knowledge of individuals. To earn the IEEE WCP credential, individuals must pass the comprehensive IEEE WCET examination, which is composed of 150 multiple choice questions and offered via computer at testing centers worldwide. IEEE ComSoc recommends that candidates have a degree from an accredited college or university and three or more years of graduate-level education or professional wireless communication engineering experience.

For more information on the entire IEEE ComSoc Training course schedule including pricing, registration and deadline details, please visit or contact Marilyn Catis at In addition, each student completing the 5 Day Intensive Wireless Training Course will receive 2 IEEE Continuing Education Units, which are equivalent to 20 Professional Development Hours.

Applications for the Fall 2014 IEEE WCET Certification Exam are due by 19 September 2014. Please visit for registration details; ongoing IEEE WCET program updates; to obtain the latest edition of The Wireless Communications Professional e-newsletter, and free copy of the Candidate's Handbook.
