Local Technical Training
Technical Education, Training & SCTE Certification
Each local SCTE chapter is required to provide a minimum of 30 hours of technical training per year. Therefore, about 300 technical training sessions are offered by SCTE’s local chapters collectively.
Chapters provide technical training on a variety of topics, including but not limited to:
- Drop Installation Fundamentals
- Signal Leakage
- SCTE Certification Exam Preparation
- Internet Protocol
- Fiber Management
- Broadband Distribution Network
- Plant Maintenance and Standby Power
- Return Path
- 5G & 10G
Local chapter training represents the most training hours provided to the greatest number of SCTE members throughout the year. The chapter meetings and events often provide the only training and industry information outside of members’ day-to-day work environment that goes beyond the essential company-provided job-related material. SCTE chapter sessions complement employer efforts to develop a capable technical team member, AND they provide the participant with a wider understanding of the business.
