SCTE Contractor Certification Program

SCTE Contractor Certification Program

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers certifies professionals in various levels of expertise and SCTE certification is recognized as the industry’s premier endorsement for cable telecommunications professionals. The SCTE Contractor Certification Program is formed on a proven foundation of cable installation and service knowledge and based on in-depth testing and professional development through technical education.

The SCTE Contractor Certification Program provides powerful benefits to cable system operators, contracting agencies and their employees. It is a reliable solution for MSOs to assess and confirm the knowledge of contracting agencies workforces. MSOs can depend on the program to improve the technical abilities and efficiency of contractors' service. In turn, MSO customer satisfaction will increase through improved installation and technical maintenance performance. Contractors and their contracting agencies will benefit from the improved service quality, enhanced knowledge as well as the potential to grow and increase revenue.

This high level of qualification is ascertained through a remote proctoring system that allows contractors to complete assessments from any location at anytime. If the desired qualification level is not met, SCTE's learning system also provides contracted technicians and installers the ability to enroll in recommended technical training to improve their knowledge and retake the assessment exam.
