PROVO, UT—For years, Wavetronix has provided expansive support to its customers by offering comprehensive technical training designed to help customers become experts in utilizing Wavetronix products. Now, Wavetronix is expanding its educational program to offer more opportunities, as well as industry recognition for those who participate in Wavetronix-sponsored events.

Traditionally, Wavetronix provides technical education to customers who have already purchased Wavetronix products. These programs are intensive and result in participants being certified as experts.

“The continuing education program has been very successful,” says John Benson, technical training manager at Wavetronix. “It’s about going beyond selling sensors and working with our customers to help them improve their highways and intersections.”

To expand the program, Wavetronix is offering new, free events intended to introduce people to the SmartSensor line. These two-hour sessions are presented by traffic experts at the customers’ locations and include information on installing, configuring and acquiring data from the respective sensors:

• The Introduction to Traffic Radar presents the basics of radar technology and its uses in traffic detection, and includes live demonstrations; 
• The SmartSensor HD Technical Workshop showcases Wavetronix’ most popular sensor and demonstrates the benefits of high resolution, dual-beam radar in ITS; 
• The SmartSensor Matrix Technical Workshop demonstrates Matrix and its ability to continuously track both moving and stopped vehicles for efficient intersection control; 
• The SmartSensor Advance Technical Workshop presents dynamic ETA tracking and how it results in safer, more efficient intersections.

Another addition to the Wavetronix educational program is the ability for participants to earn recognition through the International Municipal Signal Association. Benson says Wavetronix educational events have been certified by IMSA and will allow participants to accrue Technical Advancement Recognition Program points for each session they attend.

“That’s an exciting addition,” says Benson. “It’s something we’ve been asked about before so it’s great to be able to say, yes, you can get TARP points by taking our training.”
