Automatic CTNS Course Updates and Package Upgrades

In the constantly-evolving world of telecom, it is essential to keep training courses up to date.

The reason why so many people appreciate Teracom’s Online Courses and TCO Certification Packages is because they are based on Teracom’s instructor-led courses, with the selection of material, its order, timing and explanations tuned and refined in the classroom over the course of years, and constantly updated.

This also means that updates to instructor-led courses are subsequently reflected in online courses, keeping them up to date.

Following the major update to instructor-led Course 101 Broadband, Telecom, Datacom and Networking for Non-Engineers (Days 1 – 3 of BOOT CAMP) in 2020, updates to many online courses will be rolling out over the next months.

Certified Telecommunications Network Specialist (CTNS) is our most popular package of six online courses plus TCO Certification.

All six CTNS courses are being updated.  Update of Course 2201 The PSTN is complete.  A significant update to Course 2206 Wireless Telecommunications will be published in the next weeks.  Updates to the OSI Layers, Ethernet, IP and MPLS courses will follow.

All customers who have purchased the CTNS package, or any of the courses individually, will automatically receive the updates in their dashboard.

Stay tuned for an exciting announcement of an upgrade to the CTNS package, increasing the package from six courses to eight, with the inclusion of a brand new course #1 in the lineup “Introduction to Broadband Telecommunications” plus “Fundamentals of Voice over IP”.

The price of the CTNS package will increase when the number of courses increases from six to eight. Since all existing customers will automatically get the two new courses at no additional charge, you can beat the price increase by purchasing CTNS before the upgrade and get the two new courses, when they are released, for free!
