iNARTE was pleased and privileged to help the
EMC Society celebrate its 50th anniversary at the 2007 IEEE International
Symposium on EMC in Hawaii this year. By coincidence, 2007 is
also iNARTE’s 25th anniversary and we would like to thank
the Society for allowing us a place at the awards luncheon to
honour our 25 longest serving EMC members.
The Symposium location in Hawaii was spectacular and that was
both good news and bad news. The event certainly attracted good
support, but it was difficult to convince attendees that they
should spend the day in our examination room rather than sightsee
with their families or laze on the beach.
However, a dozen or so really dedicated EMC engineers and technicians
did step forward to obtain certification of their professional
credentials and we would like to applaud each and every one who
did so. We offer special congratulations to the many who achieved
a passing grade for the Hawaii test, and we encourage the others
to try again as soon as possible.
iNARTE was able to use the last session of the EMC Fundamentals
Tutorial on Sunday, July 8th, to present our introduction and
Examination Preparation Workshop. This subject matter was particularly
suited to all of the registrants who planned to attend the Global
University track during the upcoming week. We hope that as these
GU attendees develop their EMC career, they will swiftly reach
a point where iNARTE Certification will be their next jump forward.
Maybe the 2008 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in Detroit
will be their time.
