NCTI launches prep guides
Broadband training specialist NCTI has introduced a spate of Prep Guides for Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) certification exams.
Available online at the NCTI site, the guides are designed to help test-takers build personalized study aids by topic for SCTE examinations. Once purchased for about $10 per topic, each Prep Guide is delivered via e-mail as an Adobe Acrobat pdf document that can be saved and printed. The system also alleviates the need for students to sift through reams of materials to find the specific material they need to advance their studies.
"With Prep Guides we are using the flexibility of the Web to provide an individual with a targeted and personalized way to prepare for SCTE certification exams," said Alan Babcock, the chief learning officer of NCTI, which is an official training partner of SCTE.
In addition, NCTI has also launched a voucher system for graduates of self-study courses. Beginning this month, each graduate from several NCTI courses will receive a voucher (valued at $15) that can be applied toward SCTE membership costs and certification testing fees. Each voucher is valid for two years from the time of issuance.
