Taking the Exam

There are two ways you can take the exam, either in person or online. The next in-person associate exam will be delivered on April 3 and April 4, at RFID Journal LIVE! 2019 in Phoenix, Ariz. The event includes a training course for those who want to learn the fundamentals of RFID before taking the Associate-level exam. The professional exam will also be delivered for those who have passed the Associate-level exam and are prepared for the more advanced test.

For industry professionals who have already taken a training course or feel they are ready to take the exam now, we offer an online exam option.

The Value of Certification

Why is certification needed? First, few (if any) universities and technical colleges offer a degree in radio frequency identification, so there is no means for an employer to know if a candidate possesses the basic knowledge of RFID required for an entry-level position, and without a certification exam, there is no means by which a job candidate can demonstrate knowledge of RFID terms, concepts, systems and applications.

Both companies employing RFID technologies and solution providers value professionals who proactively develop their skills and expertise. One of the best ways for individuals to demonstrate their commitment to skills enhancement is to pursue industry-recognized certifications.
