OTA Training will now include additional information covering 4 Watt RFID devices in the classes it hosts in Australia beginning in March. In the wake of the recent decision by the Australian Government regarding power output of RFID devices, OTA’s classes will contain all the latest information needed to help those looking to capitalise on this 4 Watt opportunity.
Among other things, OTA’s courses will teach students the vitals of how to install and commission RFID readers operating up to 4 Watts of Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) in Australia. At the completion of the course, attendees will have the option of taking the CompTIA RFID+TM exam and becoming CompTIA RFID+ Certified.
OTA Training has recently opened an office in Canberra. Conveniently located between Sydney and Melbourne, the office will serve as a base of operations for the entire Pacific Rim region. The new office is easily accessible to the growing number of technology companies and manufacturers implementing RFID technologies for smart card, asset tracking and other applications. Canberra is also an ideal location to support the many RIFD initiatives that are being undertaken by the various Australian governmental bodies.
Eugene Costabile has been appointed director of business development for the Australasia Region and will be responsible for all regional operations. "RFID is a rapid growth technology but the demand for skilled RFID professionals threatens the ability of the RFID industry to continue to cultivate this technology locally," said Costabile. "Our local presence in Australia will now allow OTA to support and drive RFID adoption throughout the region"
