Instructor-Led Public Seminars
Instructor-Led Telecommunications, Network, VoIP and Wireless Training and Certification Courses

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

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?

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

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

Plus, you get printed course books with detailed notes, the CTNS and CTA online courses to refresh your knowledge, and optional TCO Certification exams to prove it!

Seize the day and get the training and certification you need.

Course Descriptions

BOOT CAMP

Specifically designed for non-engineers, Teracom's renowned telecommunications training is organized into two courses back-to-back to make a full week:

Some people, needing a comprehensive course on telecom from A-Z, attend only the core training Course 101 the first three days.

Others, who already have a base, attend Course 130 the last two days for an overview and update on new technologies, and what's coming next.

Most people attend all five days to get the most comprehensive and highest quality telecommunications training available, at a discounted price, with TCO CTNS Certification and CTA Certification included.

Register for the training that best meets your needs!

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.
