CharterSpectrumLogo154x40     "Just wanted to say that this course is exactly what I have been missing from my career at TWC (now Charter). Finally, after 5+ years of only grasping at basic fundamentals, I can now see the WHOLE picture of what we sell, provide, and monitor at TWC (now Charter). The instructor's knowledge and master-level expertise was awesome!!!!! Russell Pippin, Senior NOC Technician


official_logo     "Carrier Ethernet Academy did an excellent job of condensing the volumes of material and information into a clear, concise, examination of Carrier Ethernet guidelines, specifications and standards in a short amount of time. In addition to the certification, I gained a great deal of knowledge regarding the services that our company needs to offer to be a competitive player as a service provider." James D. Taylor, Director - Carrier Sales


company_logo     "Prior to the CEA MEF-CECP Boot Camp training I felt I had a working knowledge of ethernet transport. Now I have a greater appreciation and much deeper understanding of the details and parameters that need to be considered when negotiating or troubleshooting ethernet transport and connectivity." Phil Kull, Director - Network Eng Sup & Surv.


fones     "The MEF-CECP Bootcamp training is everything they say it is (tough, fast-paced, but lots of fun)!!! Some members of our team were new to the Carrier Ethernet standards, but the course flow and our instructor really made these topics clear and concise for all of us to understand. The result of this training is that our knowledge baseline has risen, which will allow us to speak to our customers intelligently regarding Carrier Ethernet solutions. Three days well spent!" Anastasios (Tasso) Varvarikos, CD Pre-Sales Consultant.


eidsiva     "The CECP Boot Camp was excellent, and the instructor was the very best - overall it couldn't have been done better." Even Endresen, Network Consultant BKK Fiber AS.


74b2259bbc1b573bd006a81cbd705515     "Other 'Boot Camps' that I have attended only teach you how to take the test rather than focusing on the technology and really learning the material. The Carrier Ethernet Academy actually teaches the concepts that can be applied on a daily basis to my job." Tamara (Tammy) Famularo, Sr. National Sales Engineer.
