Avery Dennison ramps up RFID training

May 30, 2006

Avery Dennison RFID is sponsoring $500 RFID training scholarships to help mandated end users quickly and effectively implement RFID within their supply chains. The company has joined with OTA Training, a vendor-neutral RFID industry educator, to help end users gain the technical expertise they need to successfully implement RFID, and if desired, move toward CompTIA RFID+ certification. The training will be held at Avery Dennison RFID’s Atlanta Technical Center (ATC) in Flowery Branch, GA, USA.
“IT professionals, warehouse managers and others within consumer packaged goods manufacturers are in the ‘hot seat’ — expected to quickly master RFID and get results, usually in addition to their other duties,” says George Reynolds, VP sales and marketing, Avery Dennison RFID. “Our partnership with OTA is a testament to the end-user community that we are here to help. And our funding of the training through scholarships further demonstrates our commitment.”
Under the direction of OTA’s RFID training professionals, students will receive hands-on training in the simulated “real world” environment at the ATC, and will learn skills that they can apply immediately in their RFID implementation. As an bonus, attendees enrolled in the Avery Dennison/OTA Training sessions will be encouraged to bring a selection of their own SKUs for live product testing and will also receive free Avery Dennison RFID tags.
