Broadband Field Technician Apprenticeship Program
Charter’s Broadband Field Technician Apprenticeship Program provides valuable, hands-on learning opportunities—both on-the-job and in the classroom. The apprenticeship program allows employees to grow their careers at their own pace and gain in-depth industry knowledge, all at no cost to them.
Upon completion of the program, enrollees receive an industry-recognized broadband field technician certification from the Department of Labor, which they can carry with them throughout their careers.
