Congratulations to Gary Campbell from Charter, our TOP GUN with the highest class score on the MEF-CECP exam this week! Nicely done Gary!

If you’re ready to get serious about Carrier Ethernet education, you’ve come to the right place! The Carrier Ethernet Academy is the industry’s first and foremost vendor-neutral training institution focused exclusively on Carrier Ethernet and the work of MEF.

We’re not just another technical training center with a list of courses. This is ALL we do. Our instructors have been actively involved in the technical work of the MEF with years of real-world experience deploying Carrier Ethernet. Experience you won’t get anywhere else! In fact, they contributed to the MEF’s Professional Certification committee and helped develop the MEF-CECP exam.

INTRODUCING our new Comprehensive Carrier Ethernet course specifically designed for telecom industry professionals—such as executives, management and sales personnel—who don’t require MEF certification, but stand to benefit from a comprehensive introduction to modern networking and Carrier Ethernet technologies. This course sets the base, then follows with a slower-paced, deep-dive into MEF services definitions, interfaces, transport and access technologies, Service OAM, Circuit Emulation and the MEF’s Carrier Ethernet certification programs.


Just wanted to say that this course is exactly what I have been missing from my career at Charter. Finally, after 5+ years of only grasping at fundamentals, I can now see the WHOLE picture of what we sell, provide, and monitor at Charter.” Russell Pippin, Sr. NOC Technician, Charter Communications

This course clarified the terminology of Carrier Ethernet Services and allowed me to better understand the services we provide on our own network. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and rationalized the parameters for each of the different services so I understood each of the parameters, not just memorize them all. This will allow me to use my new skills more efficiently.” Jack Farrer, Lead Engineer, Tier III IP, Level 3

“At Coriant we take the quality of our professional training very seriously, we highly value industry accreditation because it proves we’re serious about what we do. Our desire is to have a team with the strongest understanding of Carrier Ethernet concepts in the industry… but time and resources are scarce. That’s why our partnership with Carrier Ethernet Academy (CEA) has been a huge success story. We are very pleased with the quality and depth of understanding their instructors have sown into our people. We’ve vaulted ahead of competitors in our sector and will continue to partner with CEA for a long time.”  Eric Geelen, Senior Product Planner for Carrier Ethernet Products, Coriant

“Our goal in signing up for the boot camp was to bring representatives from several different departments together for one week to establish a common language that we could use to communicate about our Ethernet service offerings. At the beginning of the week each person had a different understanding for each of the concepts covered in the training. By the end of the week we were all communicating clearly and effectively about not only the course material but also our current and planned Ethernet service offerings. The Carrier Ethernet Academy boot camp training exceeded my expectations.”  Derek Swanson, Network Architect, Frontier Communications
