I am trying to become certified in radio frequency identification, but I have read conflicting stories about organization either not offering certification or canceling their training. Do you have any articles about how to get certified and trained in the use of RFID?
At the moment, unfortunately, there is no industry certification for RFID technology. I have been working with a small group of dedicated professionals to create a set of certifications that would replace CompTIA's RFID+ program (which no longer exists), and that would include higher level certifications. We have set up a nonprofit association known as the International RFID Institute (see The Return of RFID Certification, International RFID Institute Prepares Certification Program and What's the Latest in the Efforts to Create a New RFID Certification?), and we are currently soliciting feedback about the roadmap for certifications and the blueprint for the first certification program (see Input on RFID Certification). We welcome your feedback and hope to have the first examination completed by Apr. 1, 2014.
