Professional Development

The SCTE (the Society for Broadband Professionals) offers a wide range of professional development options for its members to further their careers and expand their knowledge base and qualifications. These range from comprehensive training courses and individual course books (for home study or instructor-led use) with SCTE certification to technical lecture meetings, online video presentations and its online assessment training centre. Students completing the course successfully become accredited SCTE Technicians and are issued with SCTE Certificates.

SCTE training courses have achieved wide acceptance as the standard for young technicians wishing to enter the field of cable telecommunications and for those wishing to advance their knowledge and career prospects. They are used in-house by a number of operating companies and SCTE engineers can be found working in a variety of international organisations. SCTE training courses in the Balkans and India, for example, have netted the Society many new members and a reputation as a leading broadband trainer.

All the courses have been revised and updated by the SCTE and are available in a variety of formats, with customised versions for different markets and geographical regions. The course books are available either as reference text books or as a complete training package.  The course cost is heavily subsidised by the SCTE and SCTE members receive preferential discounts.

This training course was due to be a member gift for our 75th anniversary this year, and we hope that it will both upskill and entertain you while COVID-19 imposes itself on our daily life.
