Rohde & Schwarz announces that it has acquired UK-based The Technology Academy, a long-established provider of online training courses in the fields of RF, wireless, and microwave engineering technology. The Technology Academy is an ideal partner to expand the existing training offerings of Rohde & Schwarz and will play a significant role in increasing the company’s future professional services.

The Rohde & Schwarz Technology Academy combines the expertise and industry insights of the trusted T&M manufacturer – currently providing live and virtual trainings from their in-house training center as well as on-site trainings for existing customers – with the web training expertise of The Technology Academy. A holistic portfolio of on-demand courses is available 24/7 to technology professionals with different experience levels. They will have easy, immediate access to a range of certified trainings, which offer in-depth expert knowledge and industry insights. Content is delivered in a practical and application-oriented way, with a focus on clear explanations. Certificates are available for completed courses.

The main objective of the training offerings is to support technical staff in managing challenges as well as staying up-to-date with the latest technologies. The web-based training format also allows both flexible and scalable learning paths. This combination of high-quality training with insights from industry experts and simple access makes it easy for companies to find the right training options for staff while simultaneously addressing time and budget constraints.

Patricio Duenas, Vice President Sales and Market Segments Test & Measurement at Rohde & Schwarz, says: “We are excited to have The Rohde & Schwarz Technology Academy as part of our group of companies. Their holistic and high-quality technical courses perfectly complement our training portfolio. We look forward to creating additional training content to keep new and existing customers on top of the latest technical developments and help maintain their competitiveness.”
