What Students are Saying about this class:
“Just wanted to say well done, as well as thank you. As you likely deduced, our company is most definitely lacking in the wireless testing equipment department. As I'm sure the free software your class presented will prove more than helpful, I hope that the members of our management attending this class, see fit to invest in a few of the spectrum analyzers you recommended. Thanks again, and I assure you that I learned a whole lot more than I ever figured I would about the dreaded WLAN we all deal with in this industry.”
“This is an amazing course. Learning about Interchannel interference & other devices (microwave)”
“Very intuitive website and course structure, very interesting, keep it up!”
“Great Instructor...is patient and works with the students to ensure everyone is on the same page of understanding. Helps those that are stuck and appreciates that there are no 'stupid' questions!”
