RFID Essentials Web-based Training

Would you like to learn about RFID in hours, right from your PC?

Powerful, Cost-effective,
100% End User Focused

RFID Essentials is an innovative, online learning tool designed to address the needs of end-user companies. Users not only learn RFID technology, but also how to apply and evaluate it.

Your enterprise can shave months off a pilot or implementation by getting the entire project team up to speed early in the planning phase.

Since RFID Essentials is available over the Internet, you can learn at your own pace, from your office, home, or local coffee shop.


“RFID Essentials is an excellent learning tool for end-user companies piloting or rolling out RFID applications. Because it’s online and very visual, it’s well adapted to global companies. My team particularly liked its imaginative, interactive exercises. The final exam is challenging, but a good measure of a person’s readiness to plan a pilot.”

What People Are Saying

"RFID Essentials is outstanding! It is rare that a self-paced course can prepare an individual to address both the business and technical considerations of RFID technology in such an interactive an effective manner."

David McCarty, Brand Protection Specialist, All-Pak


"This course was very easy to follow because the knowledge was well presented and real-life examples were used. All the modules included activities and demonstrations, which I thought were very helpful because I am a visual learner. I wish I'd taken this course before I started on our RFID project, instead of in the middle. It would have given me a base of knowledge (a visual base, which is important in my case) that would have enabled me to be more productive from the start. Instead, I had to learn about RFID from our systems team, which uses very technical terms."

D.M., Healthcare Industry Vendor


"RFID Essentials is a comprehensive training tool that includes virtual, hands-on demonstrations and step-by-step testing to ensure comprehension. Its lively and imaginative format is highly motivational."
