Cable installers earn globally-recognized certifications
Conway Corp Cable Installers John Davis and Andrew Nelson have earned the Broadband Premises Installer certification from the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) after completing an eight-week course and final exam.
The BPI certification is the foundation and one of three stand-alone Broadband Premises certifications that Conway Corp started using in 2015 as part of the core curriculum for all its cable department employees. It is the first of six career path certifications in the department.
“John and Andrew are great assets to Conway Corp and work to continually exceed customer expectations.” CATV Training Coordinator Tommy Nolen said.
Davis and Nelson are certified to perform routine installations, disconnects, pre-wires, change of service and multiple dwelling unit wiring for cable television video, voice and data residential customers by showing proficiency in six main competencies: Technology, Systems and Requirements; Premises Devices; Installation; Troubleshooting & Maintenance; Standards and Safety.
The SCTE is a global leader for telecommunication education and training programs that meet the ever-changing cable industry. The Broadband Premises Installation and Service course was developed in collaboration with the industry’s top technical professionals and cable operators. The training is nationally recognized by the cable telecommunications industry and helps individuals interested in working for a cable provider.
Davis and Nelson will now work next toward earning the other stand-alone premise certifications including the Broadband Premises Technician and the Broadband Premises Expert.
