CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
If you haven’t heard the news, CommScope is offering most of its online training classes for free until the end of May 2020. During these unprecedented times, we want to help our customers and partners increase their product and technology knowledge and reduce financial burden while providing access to the industry’s best network infrastructure training.
The free courses are all part of the CommScope Infrastructure Academy, our online platform where learners can earn certifications in a variety of topics covering the latest wired, wireless, wireline and fiber-optic technologies, including cutting-edge brands like NETCONNECT, UNIPRISE and SYSTIMAX.
CommScope first announced this limited-time offer on social media where many of our employees have helped share the news. The response has been amazing. We’ve had over 20,000 enrollments since the March 24 start, more than 4,000 a day now, and the numbers are still rising.
The three most popular courses are:
- SP4420: Fiber Optic Infrastructure Specialist
- SP8850: Pre Terminated Data Center Solutions
- WR9701: Introduction to Smart Cities & Buildings
We’ve also put together some recommendations for courses based on what we think is most popular and relevant. If you’re looking for an introduction to cabling, its basic technology and implementation, then the WR9100 Introduction to Structured Cabling Solutions (Residential/MDU) is a good option.
For information about cabling for smart buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT), then the SP7700 Cabling for Intelligent Buildings and WR9705 Cabling for IP and LED Lighting Systems are for you. If you want an introduction to in-building wireless solutions, the SP6550 Introduction to In-Building Wireless covers the bases. Finally, if you are looking for an introduction to the technology, systems and products used in RF transmission systems, consider the SP6000 Understanding the RF Path course.
You can review the complete catalog to see all our offerings. To get started, just register on the CommScope Infrastructure Academy website and gain access to over 50 courses and 150 hours of training for free.
We hope these courses help ease some of the burden of staying home and safe. It’s a great opportunity to enhance your skills and learn about areas you are less familiar. Certifications are available upon course completion which can help bolster your resume.
