This online RF course is ideal if you need to quickly get up-to-speed with modern RF, wireless and microwave communications and measurements without having to search through endless online content, magazine articles and dry academic textbooks that all too often obscure the essence of the subject with complex mathematics.
The course brings together all the essential topics by combining our RF communications and measurements courses together into a single, comprehensive and complete foundation course.
The foundation course has been designed to provide you with a solid grounding in the principles and practice of modern RF, wireless and microwave communications, test and measurement engineering. Throughout the course, important concepts are simplified and explained in a way that conveys the essence of each topic without resorting to complex mathematics.
Developed by PhD-qualified RF engineers who have contributed over 50 years of combined industry experience and knowledge, the course focuses on the essential real-world knowledge needed to help you develop a successful career in the fast-paced and rapidly changing world of modern RF, wireless and microwave engineering.
This complete online certification course consists of 35 separate modules containing 265 individual video lessons totalling over 700 minutes of video content. Every module includes a short multiple-choice quiz to test your progress. Successfully completing all modules and quizzes results in the award of a high-quality printed certificate and transcript to demonstrate your achievement.
