Drop Installation Fundamentals


As technical leaders in the industry, SCTE and CommScope have developed a training opportunity on the best practices for broadband installation and troubleshooting. The course, Drop Installation Fundamentals: The Core to Network Reliability, provides a dual benefit of helping installers achieve the highest standards of professional craftsmanship while equipping cable operators with a confident workforce that can promote and ensure the reliability of their networks. The course is being offered through SCTE's 68 chapters and meeting groups. Using an SCTE Pd (Professional Development)-approved curriculum, CommScope instructors lead the course in one four-hour session.
