Since its launch about a month ago, Abhisam Software’s free training course on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has continued to grow in popularity. Week after week, the site freerfidcourse.com has been attracting thousands of new visitors, who are looking for a learning course on RFID technology, that is easy to understand and does not come with any restrictions at all on usage.
Abhisam Software’s free RFID technology course gives these people a “no-cost” training program that addresses their needs.
RFID technology continues to grow by leaps and bounds and is much more visible now, than in the past few years. In fact, the year 2008, is said to be the "Year of RFID". This technology, which saw rapid adoption in earlier years, due to mandates by large organizations like Wal-Mart, Tesco, the US Department of Defense and others has now finally come into the mainstream, on its own. In fact, RFID technology is no longer restricted to only Supply Chain Management, but has also found eager users in many other diverse areas like Health care, Manufacturing, Inventory management, Food traceability, Animal tagging, Libraries, Transportation and even Waste Management. In the year 2008, it is estimated that about $ 4 billion worth of RFID tags, readers, hardware & software would be bought by various user organizations, to tag trillions of dollars worth of items.
This huge growth, however, is not matched at all by the availability of information, to educate interested end users, system implementers and other stakeholders in the RFID area. Most training courses that are now available, are either having restricted enrollment, or are too expensive, or simply require spending time and effort attending classes in out-of town locations. Free courses are rare and if they are found, are mostly text based periodic emails or rehashed vendor presentations.
This is where a free, vendor-neutral, technology focused and easy to learn course on RFID could really help and Abhisam Software seems to be bang on target, with the free RFID course. This course, is made up of text, rich graphics, Flash animations and interactive exercises that make learning about RFID fun and easy. It introduces the learner to the basics of RFID technology without either being boring or over the top. The learner gets a balanced knowledge related to tags, frequencies, application areas and even issues such as privacy. Unlike some free courses made by other providers, Abhisam Software’s RFID course can be downloaded to the learner’s PC without any restrictions at all. The course runs in its own player which is provided in the same download package.
“The course is really good, with rich graphics and Flash animation videos to explain the concepts. I really loved it and found it extremely useful to teach my potential customers about RFID technology” says an RFID industry veteran of many years, who has downloaded the course.
Abhisam Software also has a regular learning course on RFID that is much more detailed and comprehensive, as compared to the free RFID course.
