RFID Professional Institute Announces First Official Certification Exam

The RFID Professional Institute, a not-for-profit organization founded to promote professionalism in the RFID industry through standardized certification exams, has announced that it will hold its first formal RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate (RPICA) exam at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2015 conference and exhibition, taking place on Apr. 15-17, in San Diego, Calif.

Formerly called the RFID International Institute—the non-profit officially announced its name change in early March to better reflect its long-term mission and scope—the RFID Professional Institute held its first beta exam at LIVE! 2014 and another at RFID Journal LIVE! Europe 2014. According to the institute, test questions have been refined to ensure that the associate-level certification accurately reflects an exam taker's knowledge of RFID terms and concepts.

The aim of the associate-level certification, the organization reports, is to show that those who have passed the exam have demonstrated a broad knowledge of all types of radio frequency identification, system components and applications.

Anyone attending this year's LIVE! conference can take the RPICA exam, which will be held on Apr. 16-17. Training geared toward helping those new to RFID to pass the exam will be available onsite, before the test is administered.
