Course Description

What Is 5G Corporate Training?

5G, the 5th Generation Mobile Network and the successor to 4G, is a global technology standard for broadband cellular networks that has been in use since 2019.

After the global launch, 5G networks are projected to cover one-third of the world’s population by 2025. Our 5G certification training is designed to provide telecom students and professionals a head-start in learning!

Our 5G course curriculum modules deal with the 5G NR Core and RAN, the New Radio Core Networks and Radio Access Networks. You’ll gain an in-depth knowledge of 5G network architecture, the various protocols and layers involved, RAN procedures, network functionalities in 5G core, and 5G Air Interface, to mention a few.

With this 5G NR Core and RAN course, you’ll be able to evolve your skill set to 5G, and envision yourself in one of the following roles in the telecom domain: product engineer, research & development, network planning and engineering, network testing, network application, technical support and services, and so on.

Our Faculty

Self-learning needs a lot of effort and time. Having someone who has already got hands-on experience in the field as your instructor and mentor will accelerate your efforts and get you to reach your upskilling goals in no time at all. We’ve got the best trainers, who possess industry knowledge, domain expertise, and training experience to help you become a 5G expert. In addition, we craft our 5G training curriculum modules in such a way that they surpass what our counterparts offer, both qualitatively as well as quantitatively.

Why Should You Choose ExcelR for 5G Training?

Gaining theoretical knowledge of 5G is not very difficult, and all it takes is listening to a few recorded sessions or reading a relevant book. However, an interactive session with the trainer is always better than learning by yourself, beyond question. Our training model facilitates a classroom environment led by a trainer. Further, we don’t just stop with this training; we make sure every learner gets hands-on experience, which is why we have assignments and labs and projects as part of each module.


During the phase of assignments and projects, confusion and doubts are inevitable, as learning and applying concepts are two different aspects of acquiring knowledge. We’ve got you covered here too. If you have any doubts or clarifications, you can contact the mentor assigned to you. He or she will provide you with the necessary hand-holding as you start your labs and projects built around real-life data.

This post-training support dedicated exclusively for the 5G training that we offer sets us apart from the other course providers in the industry. In case of any queries regarding the batch schedule, trainer availability, customizing topics, availing combination courses, and more, you may reach out to our support team via calls, emails, and live chat.
