The IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc), has extended the registration deadline for the upcoming IEEE Wireless Communication Engineering Technologies (IEEE WCET) Certification Program examination to Feb. 28.  

 

Launched in 2008 by IEEE ComSoc and an international collection of industry experts, the IEEE WCET Program provides eligible candidates with a method for demonstrating their expertise in wireless communications to employers based throughout the world. It also offers global employers a certifiable means for gauging the qualifications of wireless professionals.

 

To qualify for the IEEE Wireless Communication professional (WCP) credential, individuals with a bachelor’s or comparable degree from an accredited institution and at least three years of professional wireless engineering experience must pass the comprehensive examination.

 

Administered on computer at selected worldwide locations, the official IEEE WCET exam is composed of 150 multiple choice questions. Applicants are given up to four hours to complete the exam.

 

The US$500 fee (US$450 for IEEE and IEEE ComSoc members) covers the application, processing fees and “seat fee” for taking the test. A certificate is sent to those who pass the exam.
