The wireless industry is on the brink of deploying 5G, a massive undertaking that will require hundreds of thousands of new cell sites to deliver revolutionary new services from data-rich connectivity to smart city applications, to autonomous vehicles, to the evolution of the Internet of Things.
WIA’s Telecommunications Education Center (TEC) is working to increase the pool of skilled employees, by offering comprehensive training and education courses designed to teach the skills that will be needed as wireless networks evolve to 5G. TEC is a learning portal devoted to improving education, safety, and quality within the telecommunications industry.
This fall, TEC is offering an opportunity for industry stakeholders to get their workers up to speed on the skillsets that will be needed for 5G. Typically taught in a classroom setting, these courses are now offered through a professional development series conveniently available via webinar on Wednesday afternoons.
The Workforce Wednesdays series includes five courses:
- October 24: Wireless 101
- November 28: DAS & Small Cell Basics
- December 5: Macro Site Fundamentals
- December 12: 5G Outlook
- December 19: 5G Technologies
Courses can be purchased individually or at a discounted rate for the entire series. Discounts are also available for groups of five or more. Upon completion, students will receive TEC Certification that ensures core competencies and on-the-job proficiency.
