The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers and Comcast University have announced a strategic partnership that was designed to increase the availability of training resources for Comcast’s technical instructors corps.
The agreement, which was announced this morning, calls for expanded memberships in SCTE for Comcast University staff, providing training personnel with access to SCTE’s full complement of live, online and print training materials.
“Whether we’re optimizing the experience for our customers today or preparing our networks for the services of tomorrow, Comcast is committed to providing our workforce with the tools and training they need to provide the best possible results,” said Martha Soehren, chief learning officer for Comcast. “Our relationship with SCTE will enable us to offer our trainers access to live classes, Webinars, certification training and other resources that can help them to more effectively facilitate Comcast University courses.”
In addition, SCTE and Comcast University said they would partner where appropriate on the creation of new technical learning opportunities.
“As a leader in the delivery of media and entertainment, Comcast is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of change in our industry,” said SCTE chief technical officer Daniel Howard. “By working closely with Comcast University, we can create new opportunities for the cable industry at large to ensure that their field professionals are prepared for the technology developments that are on the horizon.”

The program includes a wide variety of materials, including: technical facts, tips and primers; mobile applications; white papers, journals and other publications; onsite seminars; and virtual classroom and certification preparation courses.
