Coursework Prepares Professionals for RFID and the Internet of Things

The market offers both free and paid options for varied audiences and diverse needs.

Several manufacturers and suppliers in the RFID and IoT market also offer courses, especially for systems integrators, partners and other stakeholders, to show them how to deploy and operate their technologies. The courses are well-focused, and professionals interested in this training need to have close relationships with these firms or be part of an ecosystem partner company.

In addition, there are free online courses, such as the Code IoT platform, an initiative of Samsung in partnership with the Laboratory of Integral Systems Technological (LSI-TEC). Registration is open for new classes, which are divided into three stages comprising six six-week courses, offered in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Among the topics covered are an introduction to the Internet of Things, learning to program, electronics, concepts and basic components, physical programming, mobile applications, and connected smart objects.

The project benefits education professionals, as well as students and technology stakeholders. Participants who complete the proposed assignments will receive a certificate for each course, which is free of charge and intended for students and teachers. However, any interested party can register and access the contents. The membership period will begin on June 10, and the last phase will be launched on Sept. 2.

Information can be accessed here. Since the beginning of the program, more than 44,000 people have already registered to take part in the courses. "Samsung is looking for partnerships that can add to the development of education through technology, which is constantly evolving," says Isabel Costa, Samsung Brazil's corporate citizenship manager. "For us, it is part of our role to contribute to expanding people's knowledge and thus to improve the workforce for the job market."

Code IoT is a corporate citizenship program from Samsung that aims to create an environment conducive to technological development and the training of new professionals. In addition to the Code IoT platform, the partnership between Samsung and LSI-TEC also offers Code Day, a day of face-to-face training for teachers and educators, which will take place at the OCEAN USP (University of São Paulo) space. There are 70 vacancies, and upcoming events will be held on May 4, May 25, Aug. 10 and Aug. 24.

Finally, attendees at the annual RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition receive the opportunity to register for RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate training. This one-day, fast-track course, presented by RFID4U, provides a solid foundation for how to design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot an RFID system in the field. The training prepares participants for the Institute's Certified Associate exam, which is also delivered onsite at the event.
