Qualcomm Technologies helped create the once-thought-impossible technological breakthroughs needed to make 5G a reality. Now it’s transforming industries across sectors, and global consumers are buying their first 5G devices – from smartphones to PCs. It’s a new generation of wireless.

Whether you’re a business professional new to wireless or an engineer looking to understand the latest technologies, Qualcomm Wireless Academy (QWA) is now offering wireless courses to help build your knowledge of 5G cellular technologies.

QWA has been training wireless ecosystem players for more than 15 years, supporting the successful adoption and deployment of wireless networks and devices worldwide. With 5G impacting so many industries, we’re now offering 5G courses to the public, so more businesses and individuals can improve their understanding and take advantage of the technology.

Based on 3GPP standards, QWA courses are designed and taught by engineers from our Engineering Services Group (ESG). QWA instructors have hands-on experience deploying, optimizing, and troubleshooting 5G operator networks globally, as well as for high-traffic events, such as Live Nation concerts, MLB games, and the Super Bowl.

From capacity planning, RF design and dimensioning to deployment, field testing, and optimization, ESG brings decades of experience deploying new generations of wireless technologies. Our engineers are excited to bring this expertise to a broader audience, empowering more industries to take advantage of 5G’s high reliability and low latency to drive unprecedented new experiences for automotive, telemedicine, remote education, industrial IoT, and more.
