RFID Journal announced today that it has again partnered with RFID4U, a leading radio frequency identification training firm, to provide RFID Professional Institute certification training and two post-event training courses for attendees at this year’s RFID Journal LIVE! 2018 conference and exhibition. These courses will offer a unique opportunity for attendees to upgrade their skills and enhance career prospects in the fast-growing RFID industry.

LIVE! 2018 will be held on Apr. 10-12 at the Orange County Convention Center, located in Orlando, Fla. This year’s event will feature a fast-track certification training course, in partnership with RFID4U, on Apr. 10, as well as two post-conference master classes on Apr. 12.

The certification training is designed to educate participants about the different types of RFID systems and how they can be used to capture data, automate processes and deliver business value. The RFID certification exam, provided by the RFID Professional Institute, will be held on Apr. 11 and 12, from 12:00 PM 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 his or her level of certification. RFID4U’s RFID Professional Institute course will provide attendees with training designed to help them pass the certification exam.

One of the post-conference master classes will cover RFID applications for developers, while the other is designed to teach attendees about benchmarking ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID hardware. 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 bolster their résumés and enhance their skills,” said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal’s founder and editor. “By attending the training course and taking the RFID Professional Institute exam onsite, attendees can add the industry’s only certification credentials to their résumés.”

LIVE! 2018 will feature four industry-specific and four level-of-expertise conference tracks, eight in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, two post-conference seminars, the co-located IEEE RFID 2018 event and the RFID Journal Awards. The event will also offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry’s leading technology firms. For more information, visit
