RFID Journal announced today that the International RFID Institute will hold its first certification examination at RFID Journal LIVE! 2014, while RFID4U will offer two fast-track RFID training courses, as well as two masters classes at the event. LIVE! 2014 will be held on Apr. 8-10, at the Orange County Convention Center, located in Orlando, Fla.

The International RFID Institute is a nonprofit organization founded in 2012 to develop standardized certification examinations to promote professionalism in the RFID industry (see International RFID Institute Prepares Certification Program). The organization will launch the RFID Institute Certified Associate exam at this year's LIVE! conference, enabling attendees to be among the first to receive certification. Prospective test takers can obtain additional information, as well as register for the exam, by visiting www.rfidjournalevents.com/live/agenda/training/exam.

RFID4U is a vendor-agnostic RFID implementation and software development firm that provides RFID solutions, consulting, training and services, working globally with commercial and government organizations. Clients include the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Census Bureau, Northrop Grumman, Unisys, Harris Corp., Lockheed Martin, IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Dole Foods. RFID4U's two training courses—Fast-Track RFID Deployment Training and Fast-Track RFID Applications Developers Training—are part of the company's Fast-Track series, and will provide attendees with practical, hands-on training for implementing RFID, through lectures and laboratory exercises. Both courses will take place on Apr. 8.

Fast-Track RFID Deployment Training—an advanced, one-day skill camp, featuring the latest equipment and relevant scenarios—will provide a solid foundation to design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot RFID deployments at small and medium-sized businesses and enterprise installations. The course, a combination of lecture and hands-on lab exercises, will provide a functional understanding regarding the use of RFID readers, tags, printers and general-purpose input-output (GPIO) devices. Participants will develop a working understanding of troubleshooting methodologies, based on best practices, industry-proven processes and the instructor's practical experiences.

Fast-Track RFID Applications Developers Training, an instructor-led course, teaches software application developers how to build the next generation of rich, interactive RFID applications for passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID readers and peripherals. Hands-on exercises provided throughout the course are designed to offer students an opportunity to gain practical experience with the skills and concepts covered during the lectures, and demonstrate how to optimally capture tag reads in different scenarios, such as those involving conveyor belts, door portals, forklifts and handheld devices. Participants will learn how to make decisions regarding performance and scalability, by selecting native application programming interfaces (APIs), including vendors' software development kits (SDKs), versus middleware. Furthermore, participants will understand various structures, such as ROSpec, AISpecs, AccessSpec and RFSurveySpec, available via EPCglobal's Low-Level Reader Protocol (LLRP). Participants will be provided with hands-on experience with the latest RFID devices and cutting-edge RFID labs.

On Apr. 10, RFID4U will also offer two masters classes among LIVE!'s four post-conference seminars: NFC Application Developers and Benchmarking UHF RFID Hardware.

In addition, LIVE! 2014 will feature four industry-specific and four how-to conference tracks, as well as eight in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, the RFID Journal Awards, the Coolest Demo Contest and a co-located event, IEEE RFID 2014. What's more, the conference will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by more than 200 of the industry's leading technology firms. For more information, visit www.rfidjournalevents.com/live.
