The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has developed a new certification called the Digital Video Engineering Professional (DVEP) certification, along with an associated training program.

The new SCTE professional credential certifies knowledge in the engineering aspects of digital video systems as deployed in the cable industry. The scope of the DVEP certification includes the design, analysis, testing, integration, deployment considerations, and troubleshooting of a variety of digital video systems. Specifics include:

* facilities and physical aspects
* digital video theory
* digital video systems design and performance analysis
* digital video systems test and integration
* digital video systems deployment
* engineering management and professionalism.

"This certification can be used as a tool to give employers confidence that holders of SCTE's DVEP certification possess the knowledge to run our sophisticated networks," said Comcast's Pam Nobles, chair of the SCTE Certification Subcommittee.
