Online RF Technology Certification


Besser Associates

This online program has been designed for applications, production, manufacturing engineers and technicians as well as other professionals who need to have a solid background in the fundamentals of working with RF and wireless products. This four part program provides a thorough understanding of RF analytical tools, communications signals, RF devices and test instruments. Starting with basic analytical tools such as the decibel scale, S-parameters and the Smith Chart, this program covers test instrumentation, RF components, and modulation. A basic block diagram of a transmitter/receiver chain forms the backbone of the course outline. Each component is described, and the relative performance parameters defined. Key impairments are introduced as they become relevant to the operation of the system. Basic system calculations are covered, as well as modulation formats and multiple access techniques. The program consists of four parts spread out over a six month period. Each part consists of recorded lectures with a PDF manual that can be downloaded, workbooks with formulas exercises and a quiz following most lectures. A 25-question multiple choice test must be passed before moving on to the next part. Each part also features a one- to two-hour live webcast with a Besser Associates instructor presenting a topic related to that part. The program is equivalent to approximately 40 hours of training. After finishing the program students will receive a signed certificate of completion. You can also take each part as a separate course if you do not wish to complete the program all at once (this format does not include the live guest webcast):
