2017 Technical Training Sessions Announced
TUESDAY, AUGUST 1 THROUGH THURSDAY, AUGUST 3
The CCTA has just released the registration materials for its annual Technical Training, which will take place from 8 am to 5 pm on three days - Tuesday, August 1; Wednesday, August 2; and Thursday, August 3. This very popular training usually attracts more than 75 installers, technicians, engineers, supervisory staff and managers from the association’s Active Members (cable operators) in the Caribbean area.
Associate Director Larry Foland has developed a very comprehensive training schedule, which includes two and a half days of instructional modules presented by experts in cable industry technology and engineering. Some of the topics to be covered are:
“High-Density Wi-Fi RF Channel Plan Architecture”
“Wi-Fi User Data Analytics”
“System Design: Next Gen HFC”
“Fiber Optic Networks: Testing and Troubleshooting”
“Fusion Splicing Equipment and Best Practices”
The August 3 session will be dedicated to four stations for “Hands-on Training”.
The Technical Training is available at no cost to employees of the association’s Active Members. The CCTA will provide the training and daytime meals (breakfast, morning break, lunch and afternoon break) for each participant, but transportation, dinner and hotel expenses are the responsibility of each attendee. For other individuals wishing to attend the training, there will be a reasonable daily fee to cover meal and administrative expenses. For representatives of Associate Members, the daily fee is $100. For representatives of non-member companies, the daily fee is $140. Contact Andrea L Martin for registration forms.
