Cable Television Technicians

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Certification in special skills can be obtained through one-year and two-year certification programs at community colleges and technical or vocational institutes. Certification classes in specialized technology, such as digital technology, digital compression, and fiber optics, prepare students to work with the more advanced technologies commonly used in cable television systems. Because cable technology is evolving so rapidly, students who learn new technology have better chances at employment, and once hired, they have better chances for advancement. All workers are encouraged to continue training throughout their careers to learn new technology, new equipment, and new methods.
