The Washington Labs Academy and the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research (CAER) have reached a collaborative agreement to provide technology training for companies in the Southwestern region of Virginia.
The training will focus on practical design and development of electronics, nuclear and wireless technologies. Initial topics will include designing for electromagnetic compatibility, wireless regulations for global markets and electrical safety design.
”This partnership brings the mid-Atlantic area resources to help the engineering sector bring products to market faster and more economically. Being a Hokie from Virginia Tech doesn’t hurt, either” notes Michael Violette, President of Washington Laboratories and its subsidiary, WL Academy.
Bob Bailey, Executive Director of CAER adds that “we are proud to team with WL Academy and many engineering companies in the region, including those in nuclear energy and wireless communications sectors. This training enhances the value of CAER to our partners in the region.”
The WL Academy is a training program that brings expert instruction to the engineering and testing marketplace. The WL Academy provides offerings in EMC, product safety, environmental, wireless, international regulations and related disciplines with training coast-to-coast in the continental United States as well as in the European Community.
The Center for Advanced Engineering and Research is a non-profit organization located just outside of Lynchburg, Virginia within Virginia’s Region 2000 Partnership that creates working relationships between high-tech industries, major R&D centers and university researchers, and facilitates professional development opportunities for scientists and engineers in the region. Its 30,000 square-foot research and education facility, located in the New London Business and Technology Center in Bedford County, will serve as the region’s source for industry innovation in nuclear and wireless technologies.
