4-Day - Training Providers:

4- Day - Training Providers are commercial organizations offering 4-day CompTIA RFID+ certified preparatory courses.  Below is a listing of each:

Commercial Organizations:

At present, the first two commercial training organizations listed below, RFID4U and OTA Training, are providing the majority of CompTIA RFID+ courses in the United States.  Although, Academia, based in Montreal, offers some U.S. training, but mostly international courses.  Courses are taught directly by the listed provider, or in conjunction with another training organization.  Many times you'll see Fast Track or Boot Camps (2-3 day courses) at expos or available on weekends sponsored by another organization, however the foundation for training is normally one of these three organizations.

Synopsis: a
RFID4U is taking the RFID training market by storm!  They are cranking out new types of courses, course curriculums, training materials and building alliances both nationally and internationally.  They have built partnerships with most of the big names in the RFID marketplace including, Zebra, Siemens, Microsoft, Symbol, Printronix, as well as training partners Omron, IDEA, and Venture Research, Inc., among others.  What does all this mean?  I have no idea!  I have not attended any of their courses, however I know that they are the author of many of the practice CD's (whose importance I reference throughout this site), and that those questions greatly mirror the CompTIA RFID+ exam.   

I await feedback please from those who have taken their course(s) through Email or the Forum.

Synopsis: a
OTA Training is also making a very strong push into the RFID training space.  While their breadth of courses does not equal RFID4U, it appears that they are concentrating on the most important aspects of RFID, the Manager, the Installer & the Certification Candidate.  They have also forged partnerships with such top RFID players as Avery Dennison, RFID Journal, Sun, as well as training partners Lowry, New Horizons, among others.  Also, their book Exam Cram CompTIA RFID+ (to be reviewed later on this site) has shown to be a very effective preparatory tool.  Again, I have not taken any of their courses.

I await feedback please from those who have taken their course(s) through Email or the Forum.

Site URL: http://www.rfidacademia.com/
Synopsis: a
Academia seems to be taking a very smart approach to the RFID training space, offering the first trilingual course catalog.  All training and materials are offered in English, Spanish and French.  Courses cover the most important aspects of RFID, such as; RFID fundamentals, RFID+ exam preparation, logistics, ROI, etc.  They have partnered with other large international organizations such as; Johnson & Johnson, HP, EPCGlobal, Galderma, among others.  

While at present, the number of courses and training locations seems smaller then RFID4U and OTA Training, the variety in languages offers a unique opportunity for rapid expansion.  Again, I have not taken any of their courses.

I await feedback please from those who have taken their course(s) through Email or the Forum.
