ETA International’s Education Forum 2016 (EF16), co-locating with International Wireless Communications Expo(IWCE), offers unparalleled professional development opportunities for communications technology professionals. Together in one location, the industry’s most respected experts will provide hands-on training leading to ETA certification.
ETA President Teresa Maher, CSS, said, “For several years, ETA has witnessed a dwindling of training resources for those working in the wireless industry and yet we hear each week of the shortage of qualified workers in wireless and other industries.”
ETA-approved training providers will offer attendees hands-on training and instruction to prepare for related ETA certification exams March 21-25, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV during EF16@IWCE. One of the industry’s largest conventions for two-way radio manufacturers, this five day comprehensive conference program also includes short courses along with a Job Training and Education Center.
“ ETA’s technical classes are a wonderful complement to IWCE’s conference program, adding important continuing education opportunities to technicians and engineers on early in the week while IWCE provides the hands-on showcase of equipment from leading vendors,” said Stacey Orlick, IWCE’s director of community and conference content.
