5G is the future of mobile technology and will affect the way just about every company does business moving forward. In fact, staying on top of the latest 5G trends and technology can be crucial for professionals in a variety of fields, even those that have little to do with engineering. To illustrate, as more companies begin to manage their own networks, managers in nearly all industries will have to know how to integrate 5G technology into their companies’ strategies and operations.

Receiving the proper 5G training can help ensure you are able to take advantage of everything 5G has to offer your business and industry. In this article, we discuss what 5G training is, the two best ways to receive 5G training, and how you can receive training through the Qualcomm Wireless Academy.

What is 5G Training?

5G training involves receiving training on 5G technologies and how they can be applied to any given industry. Training can range from broader overview courses to in-depth technical seminars about mmWave, 5G RAN, Massive MIMO, and much more. For a detailed description of 5G training, please view our article titled “Receive 5G Training with Qualcomm,” where we discuss what 5G training is, who should receive it, how it is beneficial, and what topics are typically covered.

Best Ways to Receive 5G Training

Whether you are a business professional or an engineer, 5G training is easy to obtain in a format that works for you. The following are the two most popular forms of training in the field:
  • Corporate Training: One of the most popular forms of 5G training is at the corporate level. With corporate training, managers send groups of employees to receive 5G training all at the same time, either in a classroom setting or through a video platform. This method of 5G training is an easy way to ensure all your employees are trained in an efficient manner. Also, when you use this method, you will often receive a discount for the price per student. For more information about corporate 5G training and the types of courses that are available, please view the Qualcomm Wireless Academy’s corporate training course list.
  • Individual eLearning: If you are looking to enhance your career on an individual level, we recommend trying the eLearning method of 5G training. With eLearning, you can take one course at a time on a whichever topic you would like. You can also take the training online and at your own pace. For more information about this method of 5G training, please visit the Qualcomm Wireless Academy’s 5G eLearning course list.
