Available Onsite Courses
Private onsite courses in length from one to five days are available.
Most popular is our famous 3-day Course 101 Telecom, Datacom and Networking for Non-Engineers, followed by 5-day BOOT CAMP.
Two-day courses are also a popular choice. The cost of a two-day course is lower, and more people are able to take two days off for training vs. longer periods. Two-day courses include condensed versions of Course 101 and specialized courses.
We also provide a one-day network overview and update course, Telecom 111.
It can be integrated as one day of a larger team event, or presented on its own.
In fact, Telecom 111 is the first day of BOOT CAMP: TELECOM 2017. Several of our large telecom carrier customers have gone with a plan where "everyone" attends Day 1, then those who need more in-depth knowledge stay for the next four days of BOOT CAMP.

Feedback from my team was TERRIFIC. It gave our entire technical Call Center a common foundation, and you seem to have crafted that perfect balance between technical depth, real-world applications, and lively delivery.

"Thank you!"
Thanks for such a great class.  Every morning when I get to work, I read the latest tech updates and I keep realizing how much more I understand what they are talking about after attending your class. Worth every penny!

"Really appreciated"
I really appreciated the Telecommunications training course provided by Teracom Training Institute.
For me the class was a refresher for some things I learned while in school for my Bachelors in Computer Networking, yet I did learn a lot and understand things better, so that I am now able to tie everything together to understand all the facets of Telecommunications.
Many of the acronyms, technologies, network designs and services - I would have no idea what they meant if it were not for this class. Thanks, I really enjoyed it.
