AirFuel Certified Engineer (ACE) Program

AirFuel Resonant Certified Engineer Program

Interested in integrating wireless power solutions with spatial freedom into your product? Come join us for a 6 week hands-on virtual training program on AirFuel Resonant technology and learn how to quickly bring your product to market.

This hands-on program for Product Engineers, led by industry experts in AirFuel Resonant technology, will deep-dive into technical training and each participant will leave with a working reference design to integrate into your prototypes and concepts. The ACE Program will be conducted virtually, availability is limited to 15 participants, and priority is given to current AirFuel Alliance members.

The next ACE Program will start on October 15, 2020 and have weekly Thursday sessions until November 19th.
