Our History

Les Besser Teaching

Serving the RF Wireless Community Since 1985

After successfully launching the RF/Microwave CAD industry with his COMPACT program, Les Besser moved on to the training business with the launch of Besser Associates in 1985. The company was founded based on the observation that although computer simulation capabilities were rapidly advancing, adoption of the new design techniques was slow. Most design groups were still using costly outdated methods such as trial and error to work on their projects.

The commercial rollout of cellular telephone networks and handset products created a huge demand for the type of modern RF design skills that Besser Associates teaches, and the course curriculum quickly grew from one course to the catalog of over 100 courses that we provide today. Along the way, the roster of associates grew as luminaries in the field signed on to teach and share their expertise on specialized topics such as power amplifier design and communications systems principles.

Today we continue to provide training in the latest and most efficient design and troubleshooting techniques, calling on industry experts from a wide variety of backgrounds to help you save time and money in your RF and wireless projects.
