Alien Technology® Announces Academic Collaboration With RFID4U®

Alien Technology and RFID4U Collaborate on RFID+ Certification Training Curriculum, Expanding Geographic Coverage and RFID Education Offerings

MORGAN HILL, CA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) -  Alien Technology, an industry leader in UHF Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) products, services and education today announced a collaborative educational partnership with RFID4U, a leading RFID training and solutions firm based in Sunnyvale, California. The agreement is in an effort to help standardize and align RFID educational curriculums with a consistent theme, and to broaden the geographic coverage and course selection to our customers. This will provide additional session date and location options from which to choose, thereby enhancing customer convenience.

Both firms will offer a four-day "RFID+ Certification Training" program, inclusive of a blend between classroom and hands-on training with an optional CompTIA exam offered at the end of each session. Now, combined with RFID4U, staple training locations will include San Jose, CA; Washington, DC; Las Vegas, NV; and Dayton, OH. Additional locations are subject to demand. Course offerings will be made available to customers on the websites of both firms.

Said Pat Ervin, Alien's V.P. Global Sales and Marketing, "Alien's long standing RFID Academy has been instrumental in helping shape the UHF RFID community. First launched in northern California in 2002, the program expanded globally and eventually relocated to Alien's more centrally located facility, the RFID Solutions Center in Dayton, Ohio. The RFID Solutions Center is a state-of-the-art 23,000 square foot training and lab environment which provides students the opportunity to develop the needed skills to 'hit the ground running.' The program has educated several thousand graduates world-wide and its success is attributable to the right blend of theory and hands-on lab training, where content is continuously refreshed with real-world learnings. We are pleased to further expand our educational offerings with RFID4U, and help standardize the RFID academic curriculum."
