The Aspiring CWNE initiative was such a hit we’ve decided to continue it with one more round of feature training for 2018. See below for details.
The 14th of February 2018 marked our 15th year in business at SpectroTech. To celebrate and to say thank you to those that we have worked with, learnt with and those that have supported us along the way, we’ve put together our best learning and development opportunity to date.
If you’ve ever aspired to become a CWNE (Certified Wireless Network Expert), there’s never been a better time than now!
