★★★★★  Absolutely excellent class!  I had basic knowledge of "olden days" telephony and even less basic knowledge of all the newfangled technologies. A promotion at work necessitated that I get up to speed and this course was just the ticket! I cannot express enough how much I learned and can now understand others in the field. Unlike many technical (and other) courses or classes, when you can find yourself dozing off, this class was totally engaging. I recommend it highly. –  John on Google

★★★★★ This is training that most everyone in the telecom industry should get at some point and better if it is early in their career. This BOOT CAMP training was beneficial in clarifying meanings of industry standards and industry terms, explained without being influenced by specific company usage.

It is also a good refresher of current meanings for the more experienced workers as our industry evolves. The instructor was very easy to learn from and very knowledgeable. – Russ Zinter on Google

★★★★★  This course was probably one of the best courses I have taken on telecom in many years.
I liked the vast amount of knowledge the instructor had and his ability to make that knowledge so easy to grasp. Excellent from start to finish. – Rich Schadman, Telecommunications Security Specialist, Sandia National Laboratory

Course Descriptions

BOOT CAMP

Specifically designed for Non‑Engineers, Teracom's renowned telecommunications training is often organized into two courses back-to-back to make a full week called BOOT CAMP:

Some people, needing a comprehensive base in 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 update on new VoIP and SIP trunking, the Security module, and what's coming next: 5G and IoT.

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.

Plus, you'll get printed course books with detailed notes, sure to be a valuable reference in the future.  And sixteen online CTA/CTNS courses, plus the TCO certification exams with unlimited repeats.  What's not to like?
