CIBET Curriculum

Certified In Building Engineering Technologist Training


CIBET Curriculum

CIBET 5 will kick off with either the Basic RF Fundamentals Boot Camp, or Day one of the five day Advanced RF track (required for Advanced Certification). Once again we will have the best and brightest from academia and industry presenting the topics below.

On Tuesday, all tracks come together and during the next three days we explore various topics in DAS theory and practical applications, through a series of lectures, hands-on experimentation and debates.
