“Having been in the electronics and RF communications field for over 34 years, I want to say that the training hosted by ETA is excellent. In a couple of days’ time, you are educated in new and existing technologies that allow you to keep pace with the industry. Even if you are a seasoned professional, you walk away with learning something new or refreshing your memory. After training, ETA offers certification exams that validate your knowledge, which can enhance your employment situation. An added benefit of having this training coincide with IWCE is the networking opportunities and the ability to see firsthand many of the items which are discussed in class. I highly recommend this program and the ETA/IWCE experience,” said Mark J. Hari, Director – Technical Services, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, New Jersey.
