The Teracom training courses I took were much better than I had expected. The production of the training materials was high quality and edited well. The instructor spoke clearly, had appropriate teaching aids, and conveyed technical material in a way that was easy to understand. The instructor also injected the right amount of humor to keep me engaged. I would highly recommend Teracom for training.

I have a staff of recruiters who specialize in recruiting telecom professionals. We found Teracom's training to be very helpful so they understood the telecom basics and could better qualify potential candidates.

At this level of commitment, access and efficiency, you won't find a better, more in-depth and reputable telecom training and certification course of study. Happy Customer.

Teracom BOOT CAMP training provided students a robust telephony course that covered past, present and future technologies. This course strengthened our knowledge in the fundamentals of telephony and networking and educated us in more current technologies such as VOIP, 5G and IOE. A great course provided by extremely knowledgeable instructors!

I have done three certifications with Teracom (CIPTS, CWA, CTNS). The content of all three courses was excellent as it also covered the reasons for technological changes and evolutions. Since I work in the IT industry on the project management side for many years these courses were a perfect complement to my overall IT knowledge. I can now speak to engineers and technicians more on the same frequency and can provide better consultancy to my customers. I feel the courses are also priced fairly and are fun to watch and study.
After two years of serious vetting, the US General Services Administration (GSA) awarded to Teracom Training Institute a GSA Federal Supply Schedule contract for this training.
One of the steps in the contracting process was to have Teracom's products and services anonymously evaluated and rated by past customers.
We couldn't be happier with the results!
Past customers anonymously gave Teracom an overall score of 97/100, with quality and personnel ratings 100% positive!
We're not surprised, but are gratified to know our customers agree the quality of our training and customer service is at the very top of the scale.
See for yourself!
Some of our customers ask for references from people who have taken our training before deciding whether to register for a seminar. In the case below, a person working in the telecom department of a large player in the food processing industry asked for a reference.
We looked at the end-of-seminar feedback forms from a recent class, and saw that Ginger N. of Lucent indicated we could use her as a reference, so with her permission, introduced the two by email.
Following is a copy of the email response / review that Ginger sent to the potential attendee got. Other than some personally-identifying information, this is every word of the reply:
"Hi Linda, Congrats on your new position!
The course was very helpful to me. I changed industries 2-1/2 years ago from working in the staffing industry to telecom. Most of my training was on the job as we were so incredibly busy with our key account/a midwest telephone company.
Needless to say it has been more than challenging. I work in supporting one of major accounts that we supply an outsourcing voice mail management solution to.
I bought several telecom books and a telecom dictionary! Wrote down words I didn't understand - looked them up and spent time with as many technical associates on our team as possible to get some basics, it was painful.
For the first six months I was sure everyone was speaking Greek! (Which, is why you should take something like this upfront!)
It was time to pull it all together and I started searching the web for a course that sounded like it made sense. This one did.
Eric is a very talented trainer. (I say that because I've done training myself in my previous job) He truly does make this course work for people without/or with limited telecom background. He uses examples from everyday life and relates it to the course materials.
Which, by the way are very well written, easy to read and lots of diagrams - which he goes over very clearly. As I run into things on the job, I can refer to the materials.
I think one of best things about the course (and I'd recommend the 3-day) is that he starts with the basics and then builds into more complex arenas. The class was also small enough that you could ask questions.
When you look at the cost of the course in comparison to hours lost on the job trying to understand things, or perhaps the cost of making wrong decisions because you don't have the knowledge, it's minimal.
Take you or your team's hourly wage - divide in into the course cost vs trying to do it yourself or, as I said making mistakes - trust me, it's worth it.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions!

Thank you for your customer review, Ginger. We couldn't have said it better.
P.S. For those who were wondering: yes, the potential attendee did attend the 3-day Course 101. How could she not after a recommendation like that??
“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. I couldn't be happier with the results. The things my team learned from this training were applied in real-world situations almost immediately.

"Thank you again for such an informative class. It has given me a deeper understanding of the communication technology my program provides. This seminar helped me understand the basics of communication traffic signals and how they are labeled and transported across networks. I liked the logical layer upon layer approach to presenting the technical and complex communication environment. The instructor was nerdy in a fun and engaging way. I enjoyed his teaching style."
- Heidi Schuster, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, May 2022
"This seminar was excellent. I learned so much and until this week, I didn't realize how many 'light-bulbs' I had in my head, because the connections were lighting up like 4th of July! I really enjoyed the layout of the class. The manual is written in layman's terms and as a non-engineer, I appreciated it. The instructor, Richard, was the best. Loved his style of teaching, from the manual, real-life examples/stories, humor, and diagrams. Thank you! I truly enjoyed this course and the way it was presented."
- Resha McIntosh, FirstNet, May 2022
"This class was beneficial for me on three overall levels: Professional, Personal and Educational. Even though this class was taught in a professional (work) setting, the material is relatable on multiple levels. Anyone who is interested in technology and communication should definitely take this course. The instructor is flat out phenomenal! The subject taught at hand was multifaceted and dense. In short, this class is not easy to teach or swallow as a student but the instructor created an relaxed environment. His expertise and comical attitude made it easier to relate to the material taught. The instructor used a myriad of visual aids to help build the bridge for the student to learn or at least understand the material. Teracom could not have chosen a better person in my opinion."
- Chris Patterson, FirstNet, May 2022
"I need to know about telecommunications for my job but I have very little technical experience or knowledge. I have taken several introductory telecommunication courses over the past six years and this is by far the best one I've ever taken. I now have confidence in my basic knowledge of telecommunications after completing the course. It was amazing to see how telecommunications works and how the various components work together.
The course materials are excellent, well organized, and has enough details in the diagrams to be helpful but not so much it becomes overwhelming. I found the explanations (on the even pages) next to the slides/diagrams to be very informative and clear.
The instructor is fantastic! Highest recommendation! Seriously! The instructor is incredibly knowledgeable and continuously made relevant correlations to real-world situations. I do not have a technical background. This instructor kept my attention for three days and I was able to follow and understand a vast majority of what he was teaching.
He clearly loves teaching and knows his stuff! I would happily sign up for another course if I knew he would be teaching it. Usually I like training courses that have group discussions and activities to break up the content; however, I liked the almost continuous lecture for this course. (The instructor was very open to questions though.) The instructor is exceptionally knowledgeable and I felt I got more from listening to him than I would have received from group discussions or activities."
