Classroom Teaching

Bring Our RF/Wireless Training to Your Site!

Any of our courses can be presented on-site at your location at a time that is convenient to you. On-site training is available for domestic and international locations and has the following benefits:

 
  • protects proprietary information.
  • avoids logistics and travel costs associated with training large numbers of people off-site.
  • permits critical-function employees to be accessible for work while taking a class.
  • frees engineers' time to design products rather than administrate training needs.
  • schedule the course when you want it.
 

As a rule of thumb, on-site training becomes economically favorable when you have approximately eight participants needing the course. Customers often poll other groups within their organization or even invite attendees from other companies to attend to take the best advantage of the training opportunity.

 

The general process for conducting training at your facility is (not necessarily in sequential order):

 
  1. request a budgetary quote for training from Besser Associates
  2. get necessary budgetary approval from your organization
  3. confirm or customize materials to be covered in the course outline
  4. schedule the course based on your needs and instructor availability
  5. enjoy the training!

Next Steps: 

You can request more information about planning a course at your site with no obligation. You can either:

  1. Provide some basic information on our Corporate Training Request form, or
  2. Simply browse our course catalog for a course that interests you, then click on the "Request information about bringing this course to your site" link from the course description page.

 Feb 28-Mar 02, 2018:  San Diego, CA: Presented by: Ali Darwish

5G Wireless Networks (265)

This three day course provides comprehensive information on the 5G wireless network with a focus on physical layer and air interface technologies. The course starts with a review of cellular standards evolution and the shortcomings that 5G addresses. Next we move on to describe the modulation waveforms and also look at the issues that are introduced by working with higher GHz frequency bands. Further topics include Massive MIMO, network architecture, 5G system features, and evolutionary services.
 May 07-May 09, 2018:  San Diego, CA: Presented by: Joe Boccuzzi

5G, mm-Wave Antenna Integration & Test Techniques (268)

This two day course provides participants with coverage of antenna, integration, test, and propagation topics associated with millimeter Wave (mm-Wave) and 5G applications. The course provides an understanding of basic antenna property definitions, antenna fundamentals and considerations, antenna types and mm-Wave propagation fundamentals. The course provides information on how antenna properties and propagation characteristics affect communication systems. Topics also covered include how to test and measure mm-Wave antenna performance.
 Feb 26-Feb 27, 2018:  San Diego, CA: Presented by: Steven Best

Smartphone RF Architecture Fundamentals (267)

This course is intended for design, application and test engineers as well as technicians wanting to learn about the fundamentals of handset RF architectures, including aspects of the radio design covering the entire signal chain from the RF input to the A/D Digital interface. The aim is understand system design methods to dissect the different radio architectures with emphasis on the physical layer (RF) for the most advanced commercial 4G-LTE and the new MIMO-5G systems.

Applied RF Engineering I - Circuits and Transmission Lines Online (270)

New course based on material from Les Besser's famous RF course presented in the format of our online RF Certification courses. Lecture videos are followed by online workbook with custom calculators and numerical exercises. Coming soon - check back often or send us a message for more information!
 Jan 08-Jul 07, 2018:  Live Web Conference, RF Mentor e-Learning: Presented by: Rex Frobenius

WiFi and Bluetooth RF Aspects: Standards, Systems, and Measurements (269)

Successful integration of WiFi and or Bluetooth features into a product requires more than simply finding room on the board to place "off the shelf" chips. A proper understanding of how the radios work and the issues that they face will allow you to achieve a successful implementation with fewer expensive surprizes. This two day course provides a working knowledge of how the standards operate to guide your integration efforts.
