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.
