Jones/NCTI updates 2 technical courses
Jones/NCTI, a provider of technical training, education and consulting services for professionals in the cable and broadband industry, announced the launch of two newly updated technical courses.
The "Broadband Digital Installer" course introduces the basics of the triple-play installation of digital television, high-speed Internet and cable telephone services. It presents typical connection schemes and functions of home theater components, twisted-pair wire properties, DOCSIS cable modems and the basics of VoIP.
"We added two lessons: Introduction to DOCSIS and Installing a DOCSIS Modem (including DOCSIS 3.0), and our two VoIP lessons were updated to emphasize the difference and advantages of Cable VoIP Services over their managed network as compared to ordinary VoIP services," said Darrell Severns, curriculum developer for Jones/NCTI.
The "Computers and Broadband Modems" course introduces the fundamentals of personal computer (PC) hardware and software in connection with broadband modems, allowing students to gain a thorough understanding of how the PC and modem interface with the broadband network.
Updates to lessons included: introducing operating systems, understanding the different features of the motherboard, and installing and supporting input/output (I/O) devices and multimedia devices and mass storage.
Founded in 1969 by Glenn Jones, Jones/NCTI has provided technical and customer service training to more than 300,000 broadband professionals.
