Take advantage of Eric Coll's unique ability to get across key ideas in plain English!

If you've been needing to fill in some gaps, understand the fundamentals, and get a clear picture of technologies and how they work together - everything from broadband to wireless to VoIP to traditional telephony, protocol stacks, routers, TCP/IP, MPLS and the Internet... this is an ideal opportunity.

We'll start the foundational principles, progress through it in a logical order, and the latest standards and technologies.

You'll gain valuable insight and a solid understanding of the key concept-level knowledge, jargon, buzzwords and technologies -- and how it all fits together.

These online courses are in the same style as our live seminars, using the same great analogies and get-to-the-point discussions, the same graphics and course materials we continue to use for telecom training seminars for non-engineers at companies like Cisco, Nortel, Qualcomm, AT&T, the US Air Force and hundreds of others across North America since 1992.

This is as close as you can get to a private lesson from the Director of the Institute... at your own pace!

These courses are comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and priced at less than half of comparable offerings from other companies. Our objective with these courses is to give you the best information product at the best price.

We have grouped the courses into certification packages which provide you with TCO certification upon completion of the online exams.

Five great certification packages to choose from:

Courses and exams are delivered through the myTeracom online Learning Management System. They are self-contained and can be completed online without any written materials - making them easily accessible from anywhere in the world.
The instructor talks to you - the next best thing to being there. High-quality online multimedia courses - animated bullets, imbedded videos, plenty of crisp graphics, navigation menus and more.
Each certification package comes with unlimited access to the courses and exams, TCO certification, a full-color TCO Certificate suitable for framing, and a personalized Letter of Reference.
