Will this course prepare me to pass a Certification Test similar to S.C.T.E's BPI?
No. This course is designed to enable the student to learn the very basics of Cable TV. The course will however, enable an individual to enter the industry understanding the basics and using those basics, build upon to prepare them to pass an industry standard test. Additional hands on and actual field experience is a must in order for anyone to pass such a Certification exam.
