Telco Executive Certificate (TEC) Program

 

TEC

The TEC program recognizes general managers who have completed the course requirements below. Courses are divided among four areas of study (Policy, Technology, Business, and Governance) and each area contains both core and elective courses. Only courses offered by NTCA and approved statewide associations can be applied toward completion of this certificate.

Eligible courses are offered in rotation at NTCA meetings and conferences, online through the NTCA Live Learning Center, and at stand-alone seminars. Participation in live courses is tracked automatically. There is no time restriction as to when the certificate must be completed. When all requirements have been completed the certificate will be mailed.
