Welcome to the Telecommunications Certification Organization (TCO). TCO provides knowledge skills certification in the areas of telecommunications, VoIP, networking, IP, MPLS and wireless technologies, and works with training organizations to develop courses for the certifications.
TCO Telecommunications Certification confirms and demonstrates that an individual possesses specific knowledge of telecommunications, including broadband, convergence, the Ethernet/IP/MPLS components of the modern telecommunications network, broadband and mobile wireless, Voice over IP and SIP, the PSTN and carrier connections.

Whether you're a programmer looking for that extra edge to be working for a telecom company, or a sales, finance, marketing, analyst or management person involved with telecommunications, building a broad knowledge of telecommunications networks, services and technologies, and obtaining a certificate to prove it can only help your prospects.
