1 THE NARTE EMC ENGINEER CERTIFICATION PROCESS - A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE Sandy Mazzola, NCE, EMC NE BAE Systems Inc.
2 NARTE NARTE is a worldwide, non-profit, professional telecommunications association which certifies qualified engineers and technicians in the fields of Telecommunications, Electromagnetic Compatibilty/Interference (EMC/EMI), Product Safety (PS), Electrostatic Discharge Control (ESD) and Wireless Systems Installation.
3 NARTE National Association of Radio and Telecommunication Engineers -Established EMC certification started in EMC Grandfathering ended in June 1990 EMC certification initiated by NAVAIR to improve technical quality of support Purpose of EMC credential Certification Program is to foster technical excellence
4 NARTE STATEMENT The program benefits the individual engineer, the technician, and the EMC community as a whole by establishing a standard of excellence in EMC engineering that will endure and extend across the boundaries of private and government agencies.
6 NARTE Certification Telecommunications Telecommunications certification is applicable to professionals practicing a wide range of telecommunications disciplines, to include RF, Non RF, wireless, photonic systems, PCS/PCN, cellular, satellite, LAN, WAN and many more.
7 NARTE Certification Wireless Installation Certified Wireless Systems Installers are professional engineers and technicians who design and install wireless systems which do not require a license from the FCC, such as Information Systems, Security Systems and Transportation Systems.
8 NARTE Certification EMC Electromagnetic Compatibility EMC certification is applicable to professional engineers and technicians practicing in EMC fields including bonding, shielding, grounding, EMI prediction, EMI analysis, conducted and radiated interference, and lightning protection.
9 NARTE Certification EMC Accredited Test Lab Personnel This endorsement distinguishes individuals with expertise and experience in Accredited EMC Test Labs and test governing directives, such as FCC CISPR, AS/NZS, MIL-STD, VCCI and others.
10 NARTE Certification ESD Electrostatic Discharge Control ESD certification is appropriate for engineers and technicians whose training and experience have primarily focused on problems, engineering design and corrective measures associated with minimizing or eliminating electrostatic discharge.
11 NARTE EMC MEMBERSHIP NARTE has almost 3,000 EMC ers certified worldwide NARTE has over 15,000 Engineers and Technicians certified worldwide International Presence in 26 Countries
12 NARTE EMC CERTIFICATION 4 step process -Education- Education is evaluated by NARTE and applied to work experience requirement -Work Experience - 9 years or more of applicable engineering work -Peer endorsement- 1 Supervisory and 2 additional references -Examination Compose 10 multiple choice questions and supporting references and pass the NARTE EMC engineer s examination
13 NARTE CERTIFICATION PROCESS Complete EMC Application Form -$65 application fee (includes $30 testing fee) -Yearly dues $65
14 EMC EXAM Two 4 hour sessions Each session consists of 48 questions You are required to answer 40 of the 48 questions You can eliminate 8 questions in each session You must answer 56 of the 80 (70 %) questions correctly to pass the exam

21 MILITARY STANDARD QUESTIONS NARTE developed with the US Military (NAVAIR). Today EMC discipline reaches into commercial applications worldwide. NARTE now limits the number of US Mil Std based questions to 8 in each section. Examinee can skip these questions entirely if they wish.
22 TYPICAL QUESTION During a survey, a meter reading of 97 dbµv/m is recorded. The cable loss is 2.5 db, attenuation is 10 db and the antenna gain is -20 dbi.. What is the corrected value in V/m. A) 0.07 V/m B) 2.99 V/m C) 29.9 V/m D) 7.0 V/m
23 ANSWER E actual = E measured + cable loss + Attenuation Antenna Gain E actual = 97 dbµv/m db - (-20 dbi) ) = dbµv/m db = 20 Log (V1/ V2) E actual =(Log 10-1 (129.5/20))= x 10 6 µv/m E actual = V/m, Answer is B
