Premcell and Nokia, two international leaders in the world of wireless mobile phone networking, have partnered up with North Lake College for a training program that will help provide the skills needed for industry jobs.
Successful students receive a certificate of completion from Nokia and Premcell. This certificate can help students seek employment as installation, commissioning, and integration technicians with Nokia and major cellular network companies.
How does it work?
The first class session is expected to begin in October 2017, and will be a fast-track program including lectures at North Lake and on-the-job training at Nokia. Classes will include data transmission, mobile communication systems, and training on 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.
What career does it prepare me for?
Wireless network technicians and systems architects are in demand among all the major mobile carriers, including jobs in Dallas-Fort Worth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects this career field to expand by about 9% over the next eight years.
