Online in-building wireless certification programme launches, featuring Real Wireless

Our contributions to iBwave’s certification programme have now been incorporated in the online training version, launched today.

As we commented in the foreword to one of the few books on in-building radio design :

“The industry desperately needs best-practice techniques to be shared amongst a wider base of individuals to serve the growing demand – there are not enough engineers for the buildings requiring service – and for these techniques to become standardised in order to drive down costs, improve reliability and drive volumes.”

An accessible certification programme is an important step towards professionalising   the in-building wireless industry and we applaud iBwave’s actions on this. We hope the programme becomes as widely accepted as the Cisco certifications have become for the internet industry.
