Telecommunications plays an indispensable role in modern life and its importance in our business and social lives is increasing.
PTT has developed two accredited online study programmes that are ideal for those joining the telecommunications industry in a technical role. The programmes provide the knowledge you need to efficiently carry out the tasks your role will entail. They also form a solid foundation for more advanced telecoms studies.
The "PTT Level 3 Award in Principles of Telecommunications" study programme is aimed at those who are new to telecommunications and require an overview of the technical aspects of telecoms service provision. The programme has two parts: The core unit covers the fundamental principles of electronic communications and provides an overview of the systems that are employed by service providers. The specialisation unit then focusses on the principles of mobile communications networks, or fixed line telephone networks, or wide area networks, depending on your specialisation choice.
If you are new to telecoms and want an appreciation of the provision of the various types of telecommunications service, while understanding in more detail the technologies underpinning a specific service, then the "PTT Level 3 Award in Principles of Telecommunications" is ideal.
If you want to focus on networks that employ the Internet protocol (IP) then the study of the "PTT Level 3 Certificate in Unified Communications" will provide an in depth understanding of all aspects of the operation, protection and maintenance of such networks.
The "PTT Level 3 Certificate in Unified Communications" study programme is also an ideal way of delivering the knowledge component of the Level 3 Unified Communications Technician apprenticeship standard.
