Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the 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.

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
