Here’s a sampling of student evaluations from previous classes:

“Awesome course, really. Just very, very good.”
  – Tim Wilson, Ciena

“Thank you guys so much, this class was amazing! I would take this all over again!”
– Austin Thompson, NHC

“Since I am very new to telecom, this helped me connect the dots, the different layers and terminology. I liked that it followed the printed workbooks very closely so I could read the summaries after the lessons. The instructor was great. He kept it light, added some jokes to keep it entertaining.  I liked most when he did drawings with his explanations.”
  – Ashley Brinkman, Marketing Manager, MTA, Palmer Alaska

“The course was very beneficial for me.  I wish I would have been able to take this class a few years back when I first started!”
  – Tamara Pepin, CRTC

“I had some of the basics; this class filled gaps and added much more depth. Instructor Richard was open to questions at any time, and revisited topics until we got it. Having the notes in the printed course book to follow along and add to was very helpful. Richard was very passionate about the course material and had great real-life examples.”
– Robert Smieszny, NHC

“Richard is an excellent instructor. He has unmatched knowledge on the subject! He does a fantastic job interacting as if we are physically in a classroom with him!”
– Daniel Herfel, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Student Evaluation from the most recent BOOT CAMP Live Online

Name: Michelle Rose
Organization: tbaytel
Date: June 16, 2021

Instructor’s Knowledge of Subject: Excellent
Instructor’s Presentation: Excellent
Course Materials: Excellent   
Live Online Facility (Zoom): Excellent
Overall Rating: Excellent

I work in telecom, mainly with Business wireline services.  I’ve worked in the industry for 15 years, however new to the business wireline side of things.  I work for a telecom company that sells, telephone, internet, DTV, security, mobility services. SO although some portions of the course were technical, I felt that the overall course was very helpful, providing a history overview as well as covering all sorts of technology. 

I liked the size of the group attending (very manageable) , the discussions we had, and found the diversity of those attending widespread.  It was nice to hear everyone’s point of view and the backgrounds they come from.

Instructor Richard was comical, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable.  I appreciate the fact he was able to “dumb things down” to a level someone like myself could understand.   Some portions of the course weren’t directly applicable to me personally but the majority was helpful and I will continue to use the book for reference in the future.  I’d love to tap into his brain and steal a bit of the knowledge he has.

BOOT CAMP Live Online Instructor-Led Training Request

Want to take Boot Camp, but need to get approval. Here is a message you can send to your supervisor for approval.

BOOT CAMP Live Online Instructor-Led Training Request

Dear [Manager]

I need to get training on telecom to do my job effectively, and to that end, I would like to request permission to register for Teracom Training Institute’s Live Online telecom BOOT CAMP seminar the week of May 3-7.

www.teracomtraining.com/boot-camp.htm
detailed outline: www.teracomtraining.com/courses/teracom-brochure-course-111.pdf 
course listing: www.teracomtraining.com/public_seminars.htm#LO

Teracom Training Institute specializes in telecommunications training for non-engineering professionals, which is exactly what I need.

I need this training because I have learned some things technology-wise “on the job”; but am frustrated by gaps in my knowledge, especially when people start speaking in jargon and buzzwords.  Not being up to speed on it all is unproductive, frustrating and a bit awkward.

This training will improve my productivity, accuracy and efficiency… and enable me to contribute a lot more, having a knowledge base in the technologies and the jargon.

Being part of a live online class will keep me away from distractions, so I can concentrate and learn what I need.  Instructor-led training is how I learn best.  Plus, the high-quality detailed course books they will ship directly to me before the course will be good references going forward.

Teracom is the leader in this kind of training… type “telecommunications training” into Google and Teracom Training Institute comes up #1 in the search results. They’ve been doing this since 1992, and by all accounts are very good at it… virtually all of their ratings on Google are 5 stars: https://g.page/teracomtraining. They have a GSA contract for this training, which means they have been thoroughly vetted.

One thing that I like about Teracom’s BOOT CAMP is that it is totally up-to-date, starting with broadband and IP telecom network fundamentals, cloud computing and data centers, LTE and 5G, Optical Ethernet, VoIP, SIP trunking and IoT, plus a module on security.

Here is the five-day outline:

Day 1: Fundamentals, Cloud Computing and Data Centers        
Day 2: Wireless, Fiber and Copper; Equipment and Carriers      
Day 3: IP Networking and addresses plus MPLS, SLAs and Class of Service Guarantees
Day 4: VoIP and SIP: Fundamentals and Technologies, Softswitch as a Service
Day 5: Security, 5G and IoT

It comes with two course books printed in color shipped directly to me.

As a bonus, three TCO Certification Packages: CTNS, CVA and CTA are included, along with their courses and certification exams. There are no time limits or expiration dates on the bonus online courses.

This is the training I need. It will give me a solid base, fill in gaps and get me up to speed on the jargon, technologies and standard practices across the board.

Besides alleviating the frustrating jargon and buzzwords situation, it makes good business sense for me to attend. This training will make me more accurate – understanding the big picture, the ensemble of technologies and how they relate – and this can only make me (and therefore you) more productive and save the organization money.

The in-class discussions and case studies are also an excellent opportunity for me to discuss the general outlines of our situation and find out what others are doing.

The tuition is only $1895 for five days of professional training. I checked around and found other companies like Global Knowledge charge double or more for similar week-long courses, without the included online courses and certifications, and without the printed books.

There is an optional companion reference textbook at $89 I’d like to get as well.

Please let me know if I can get this training.

Thank you,
