The Cable Center and Women in Cable & Telecommunications (WICT) have hooked up for Cable Boot Camp and Beyond, which is a two-day instructional program for professionals who are new to the cable industry.

The program will be held Oct. 28-29 at The Cable Center in Denver, Colo. Cable Boot Camp and Beyond will provide a training ground for professionals who are new to the industry and need an introductory background on the cable business, those who are making a switch to a new discipline, or those who may need a refresher on the industry.\

The Cable Boot Camp and Beyond program will help participants sharpen their knowledge of the cable business and learn new information and skills that will help guide their cable careers. The program covers everything from how cable came about to what the current marketplace looks like, including who the players are and what key issues the cable industry faces today, and it is designed for cable operators, programmers and vendors.

"Cable Boot Camp and Beyond is an ideal program for anyone who is new to the industry or simply wants to quickly boost their knowledge," said Jana Henthorn, The Cable Center's senior vice president of programs and education. "Together with WICT, we're kicking off exciting, relevant and wide-ranging curriculum that will be of great value to participants."

Cable Boot Camp and Beyond will be taught by a variety of experts within the industry, including Dick Clark, an industry veteran, Bill Dorman of The Cable Center and Dr. Ron Rizzuto from the University of Denver.
