Penton' s International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) and ETA International today announced that they are expanding the training opportunities for communications technology professionals at IWCE 2017, which is scheduled to take place March 27-31, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

ETA’s Education Forum @ IWCE 2017 provides unprecedented in-depth training by respected subject matter experts and industry certification for communications technology professionals. ETA International offers training and ICAC-accredited certifications for communications technicians in the electronics industry – from the technician and educator to the corporate institution. ETA International brings vendor-neutral programs from various trainers to IWCE, providing both training and certification in one place. From Interference Hunting to DAS to Line and Antenna Sweeping and beyond, ETA International has issued over 150,000 technical certifications covering more than 80 certification programs in a variety of technology fields. ETA International also provides continuing education credits for the hundreds of workshops and sessions in the IWCE conference program held that same week, giving attendees an opportunity to keep up certifications through both programs.

“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with ETA International to expand communications technology training opportunities for event attendees,” said Stacey Orlick, Director of Community and Conference Content, IWCE. “By offering this training and certification process within our one week event we provide a convenient opportunity for professionals to learn, receive certification and network with peers on key industry technologies.”

“We make training and certification easy with the ETA Education Forum @ IWCE 2017,” said Teresa Maher, President, ETA International. “Professionals won't need to coordinate with trainers to attend classes and or arrange a proctor for an exam. And by partnering with IWCE, Education Forum attendees get access to hundreds of vendors and dealers in the communications technology field, where these certifications and skills can be put to use immediately.”
