The expansion of the use of radio frequency identification and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies worldwide has favored the emergence of new business opportunities in these areas and, consequently, the growth of job vacancies. In the midst of this phenomenon, professionals seeking to know more about RFID and the IoT represent very different audiences, with diverse interests and needs that do not always converge.

In recent years, many people who are responsible for business areas representing various segments, and who want to prepare to manage the implementation of an RFID or IoT project, have been interested in professional courses with a focus on business benefits. Many view identification technologies as the basis for building new tools for their customers, from students to experts in areas ranging from logistics to automation and software development.

Among the best-known and sought-after sites for expertise in these areas is HP's RFID Center of Excellence (RFID CoE), located in Sorocaba, Brazil, which has been responsible for the training of thousands of professionals. Among its courses is "New RFID Implementation," its flagship training offering. The next scheduled class will take place on May 20-22, 2019.

This training is intended to provide adequate learning to professionals who require the expertise to deploy and utilize RFID technologies in their day-to-day operations and production operations. The course was developed by RFID CoE, the only laboratory in Brazil focused exclusively on the study of RFID technology and accredited by EPCglobal. With lectures offered by Professor Renata Rampim, this training approaches the technology from the perspective of its applications and limitations.

In July, RFID CoE's "New RFID Middleware" course will be offered, featuring an in-depth look at the appropriate architectures, standards and platforms for the development of RFID applications. The course aims to facilitate comparisons between different vendors of middleware and tools for business processes. Lasting two days in duration, the training will be offered by Mário Prado, and is intended for engineers, systems analysts and other technical professionals.

RFID CoE also offers courses and proof of evaluation, in partnership with GS1 Brazil, to certify professionals in RFID (the only certification available in Brazil), which is a differential for the curriculum of several players in this area.
