RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Besser Associates?? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Does anyone know anything about Besser Associates training? Is it worth the $? Is it respected in the industry? Thanks for the help.

Good day.

I have taken three different Besser Associates courses (Applied RF Techniques I, Applied RF Techniques II, and RF Fundamentals, Modeling and De-Embedding Techniques) and I thought they were all good.

As with all classes, the quality of the course comes down to the instructor. Besser Associates tries hard to get good instructors.

It is my understanding that industry does not recognize them the same way they would for a course from a university. However, the knowledge you gain could very easily put you ahead of other engineers.

Are they worth the cost, I would say yes, but the courses I took were paid for by the company I was working for.

If I have the opportunity to take another course I would even if I had to pay for it myself.

As a side note, I would strongly recommend you check out some of the webinars that Besser Associates have held.

Best of luck
Michael
