Going to VoIP? Ongoing Education Will Help You Keep Up

February 12, 2014
By Rory J. Thompson, Web Editor

By now, with everything you’ve heard and read about VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technologies, you might well be seriously considering pulling the trigger and making the switch for your company. From both a cost-saving and technological standpoint it makes sense to go all in, but some might be wondering, what’s next?

After you make the move, how do you keep up with not only this trend, but the others that are sure to follow down the road?

Fortunately, there is a roadmap. Freelance tech writer John Terra recently posted an informational blog about some options and choices available to those who worry about keeping up in this fast-moving business.

“In order to remain competitive in today’s ever-changing world of telecommunications, you need to have resources that help you and your staff to keep up with all of the latest trends,” Terra wrote. “Being in the know about the latest and greatest could be the deciding factor between gaining and losing a customer. It’s a foregone conclusion that your competitors are doing whatever they can to stay ahead of the pack.”

Terra lists five options that he suggests you look into to keep your skills sharp and help you stay ahead of the curve. They are:

Teracom Training Institute: Teracom offers the “CTNS (Certified Telecommunications Network Specialist) telecommunications certification package, which includes all of the previous training courses listed in one comprehensive bundle,” Terra notes. “In addition, Teracom offers public seminars and courses, and they also have courses on video and DVD.”

Aegis School of Business: Most notably, Aegis offers short-term fast-track programs in Telecom subjects such as Basic and Advanced Telecom, Optical Networking, and Traffic Engineering.

SCTE: The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers feature “…course bundles that help companies save money, and course packages that offer more courses,” Terra says. “Their packages include Cable Telecom, Data Communications (News - Alert), and the Digital Home Package, while bundles include CISCO Certification Prep Courses, and Broadband TelecomCenter Specialist.” These are all valuable and worthwhile offerings for any company or individual that needs to stay on top of telecom trends.

NACTEL: The National Coalition for Telecommunications Education and Learning features programs that are developed by and for the telecom industry. Best of all, it offers jump-start courses in areas such as social media applications, basic telephony voice communications, and broadband essentials.

University Of Phoenix: This fully accredited university offers degree programs for Telecom professionals in subjects such as information technology, information systems, and visual communication.

In short, there are options out there for those who need to stay ahead of the competition. But like any other endeavor where you want to grow, you need to make the first call. Or in this case, the first log-on.
