Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted, Director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, announced the launch of the newly designed "Broadband Infrastructure Training Program" today at Buckeye Hills Career Center in Rio Grande.
Students will go through an approximately 12-week interactive learning journey that includes the design, installation and service components of broadband networks. Along with the technical understanding of broadband technologies and associated hands-on exercises, the training emphasizes the safety, customer service and digital literacy aspects of the network buildout process. Graduates of this program will help supply the telecommunications industry in Ohio with the talent needed to expand broadband access in the state.
