The IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc), the leading worldwide professional organization dedicated to the advancement of communications technologies, has launched a new web site at to provide detailed information, ongoing updates and free online resources highlighting the newly-introduced Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program. The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology.

Unveiled earlier this year, the IEEE WCET program was designed by IEEE ComSoc to aid the global wireless industry’s growing need for qualified communications professionals with practical experience and advanced problem-solving skills. It was also developed to help individuals qualify their expertise in wireless engineering and advance in their careers as new global opportunities arise. Additionally, the program may assist an individuals’ ability to make a switch into the wireless field from other engineering areas.

“The initial launch of the IEEE WCET program was greeted with a great deal of excitement and interest from IEEE global members, corporations worldwide, media and thousands of wireless communications professionals,” said Celia Desmond, the IEEE WCET Program Director. “We believe this program will provide a boon to the wireless industry, which is continually seeking new talent on a global scale, as well as to communications professionals looking to qualify their skills and take advantage of the latest array of wireless opportunities.”

“The development of the IEEE WCET web site is the next step in our commitment to fulfill the needs of a rapidly growing industry that is expanding services and the many benefits of wireless communications to millions of people annually,” added Rolf Frantz, the program’s Industry Relations Manager.

Launched in mid June, the IEEE WCET web site clearly highlights program details and benefits to both industry and wireless professionals. It also will offer ongoing updates on eligibility requirements, testing dates and locations, application information including deadlines, examination specifications, links to training organizations and free resources such as a glossary, a list of references and sample questions for helping candidates thoroughly prepare for the exam.
