LIVE! 2016 to Feature RFID Professional Institute Certification and Fast-Track RFID Training Courses

NEW YORKFeb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — RFID Journal announced today that it has partnered with RFID4U, a leading radio frequency identification training firm, to provide four educational courses for attendees at this year’s RFID Journal LIVE! 2016 conference and exhibition. One preconference course is aimed at helping individuals pass the RFID Professional Institute’s certification test, while the other is designed to teach attendees how to build ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID applications. The post-conference master classes will cover Near Field Communication (NFC) application developers and benchmarking UHF RFID hardware.

LIVE! 2016 will be held on May 3-5, at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, Fla. This year’s event will feature two fast-track training courses, in partnership with RFID4U, on May 3, as well as two post-conference master classes on May 5. These courses will offer a unique opportunity to upgrade skills and enhance career prospects in the fast-growing RFID industry.

The RFID certification exam, provided by the RFID Professional Institute, will be held on May 4 and 5, from 12:00 to 2:00 PM each day. Institute credentials indicate to potential employers that the holder has the requisite knowledge and skills to perform certain tasks, depending on the level of certification. RFID4U’s RFID Professional Institute course will provide attendees with training designed to help them pass the certification exam.

The goal of the Fast-Track RFID Applications Developers Training course is to teach software application developers how to build the next generation of rich, interactive applications for passive UHF RFID readers and peripherals. Exercises provided throughout the instructor-led course are designed to offer students an opportunity to gain practical experience with the skills and concepts covered during the lectures. Participants will receive hands-on experience with the latest RFID devices and cutting-edge RFID labs.

“These training courses offer a great opportunity for attendees to enhance their RFID skills,” said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal’s founder and editor. “Attendees can take the certification training course and then take the RFID Professional Institute exam the next day, and leave with the industry’s only certification credentials.”

LIVE! 2016 will also feature four industry-specific and four level-of-expertise conference tracks, as well as six in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, four post-conference seminars and the RFID Journal Awards. What’s more, the event will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry’s leading technology firms. For more information, visit
