Taking CompTIA’s RFID+ training and getting certified is a good start. Academia RFID offers such training in Toronto, and RFID Journal offers CompTIA RFID+ distance learning (see http://www.rfidjournal.com/training).
I would also suggest that you volunteer to work on projects in your spare time. Academia RFID offers consulting, and McMaster University‘s RFID Applications Lab undertakes projects and might need help from time to time. In addition, you can post messages on our forums as a way of finding opportunities and making connections.
