Trilithic said it is offering free Web-based training and certification for the 860 DSPi Digital Installation Analyzer used to install and maintain analog, digital, high-speed Internet and VoIP cable services.

The courses are available here.

Offered 24/7 in Trilithic's online learning environment, each course typically requires 1-3 hours to complete. The Web-based training was developed especially for working professionals that are unable to take time from field work to attend traditional classrooms.

"On-demand training expands educational training opportunities for our customers around the world," said Terry Bush, president of Trilithic. "By offering high-level training on the technology and tools they use in the field, we assist our customers to improve the integrity of their service and increase customer satisfaction. In addition, Certification Program not only assures managers their field staff is competent – it provides proof of educational achievement for adult learners."

All that is needed to access the courses is Internet access and a standard Web browser.

Upon coursework completion, students are offered a post-assessment exam to test knowledge retention and achieve certification on Advanced Services Testing using the 860DSPi.
