Public Seminars: Instructor-Led Training Courses

Live, in-person training, where you can ask questions and interact, is the best you can get. 

Discuss and understand the latest technology and industry news in-class. At lunch, you can discuss your situation with class members, and find out what others are implementing.  Attendees often network and go to dinner together.

Being in a classroom, with an expert instructor, also ensures that you will stay focused, and learn.

If you are often distracted at your desk, will you learn much with screen-based training?  Won't you learn more out of the office?

Course Descriptions

Telecommunications Training and Certification:
Telecom BOOT CAMP with CTA & CTNS Certifications  

Specifically designed for non-engineers, Teracom's renowned telecommunications training is organized into the five‑day Telecom BOOT CAMP, covering the full range of knowledge needed in the telecom business... in plain English.

You will bust the buzzwords, understand the jargon and technologies, and most importantly, the underlying ideas, and how it all fits together ... knowledge you can't get on the job, talking to salespeople or reading articles.

Your knowledge skills, accuracy, productivity and buzzword-frustration level will all be improved with this career-enhancing training.

Telecom BOOT CAMP begins with Teracom's famous three-day Core Training Course 101 Telecom, Datacom and Networking for Non-Engineers : the PSTN, wireless telecom, data communications, the Cloud, Ethernet and LANs, IP and networking, MPLS, and the Internet as a business.

On Thursday and Friday, we build on this solid foundation with Course 130 Voice over IP, SIP, SIP Trunking, Security, 5G and IoT, and finish with upcoming technologies: how everything from toasters to self‑driving trucks to human brain implants will be online.

In addition to all the useful knowledge you'll gain, Course 101 is the preparation for the prestigious TCO Certified Telecommunications Analyst (CTA) Certification. The optional CTA Certification Exam is included with Telecom BOOT CAMP, a $399 value, free!

Bonus TCO CTNS Certification.  The Certified Telecommunications Network Specialist (CTNS) Online Courses and Certification Exam are included with Course 101 and Telecom BOOT CAMP.  Online courses are a second pass through topics and allow you to refresh in the future.  Write the optional exam to get certified as a CTNS.  $219 value, included free!

You may register for just the first three days (listed as Course 101: Telecom, Datacom and Networking for Non-Engineers, $1395) or just the last two days (listed as Course 130: Voice over IP, SIP, Security, 5G and IoT, $995) as best meets your needs. But with the price savings of $794, wall-to-wall training and included CTA Exam, the full week Telecom BOOT CAMP is a great opportunity.

Certified Ethical Hacker v9 Cybersecurity Certification

Cybersecurity Training and Certification:

This allows the deployment of proactive countermeasures, staying ahead of exploits taking advantage of vulnerabilities.

The EC-Council CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.
