Lack of RFID skills will stall roll-outs

Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology adoption rates will suffer because of a lack of skills in the field.

Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology adoption rates will suffer because of a lack of skills in the field.

A study from the US-based Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) trade organisation shows that three-quarters of business professionals think there is an insufficiently skilled workforce to design and deploy RFID technologies.

As a result, 80% believe RFID adoption rates will suffer. CompTIA said training and education for staff on RFID is one of the top challenges in adopting the technology.

The organisation said that a knowledge of radio physics, which is necessary for RFID adoption, was lacking at most companies, particularly at smaller ones.

The survey was based on responses from 80 business professionals, with 98% of them located in the US, where RFID has seen the first limited implementations.

The CompTIA RFID+ certification programme is being launched this week.
