ETA® International will host an introductory hands-on 5G training course at ETA’s annual convention, Education Forum, co-locating with the International Wireless Communications Expo in Las Vegas March 4-8, 2019. The Forum will lay the groundwork for success with the accredited certification exam. Since 1978, ETA (Electronics Technicians Association) has delivered over 200,000 certification examinations successfully.
“ETA recognizes the new role 5G technology will have on the Information Communications Technology sector and wants to help prepare technicians and engineers for its impact on their careers,” they stated in an announcement issued Friday.
ETA’s certification examination will cover a variety of topics, including: 5G linguistics, uses of 5G with enterprise, government and consumer systems, 5G equipment specifications, 5G networks, 5G construction best practices, 5G infrastructure design, and general design principles and concepts. The hosted training course will serve as an introduction to 5G and will give attendees the opportunity to earn an accredited certification that has valuable industry applications.
“5G has already had an impact on our industry and we expect it to drive profound long-term changes in the way we communicate with one another, conduct business, and govern cities,” said 5G Committee Chair and industry training partner Patrick McNerney, COO, 3D Design & Engineering. He added, “Our team has set out with an ambitious goal to familiarize those within the Information Communications Technology industry with this new wave of technology from an engineering and construction perspective.”
Attendees will get a first-hand look at industry standards, case studies provided by subject matter experts with backgrounds in structural engineering, construction, RF engineering, broadcasting and entertainment. For more information on the event click here.
