BCT and BCE Certifications Discontinued

Broadband Communications Technician (BCT)
Broadband Communications Engineer (BCE)

The Broadband Communications Technician and Engineer BCT/E® certifications demonstrate knowledge that is highly valued in the cable telecommunications industry. Nevertheless, industry structure and needs have changed since the BCT/E certifications were originally designed. In addition, SCTE has developed other certification programs (Digital Video Engineering Professional and Internet Protocol Engineering Professional) that more closely align with current industry practices. Therefore, BCT/E exams have been discontinued.

The BCT/E designation will continue to be recognized and recertification will continue to be necessary to maintain the credential. This is particularly important for those who desire to pursue Emeritus Certification status.

Individuals interested in earning an engineering level certification can consider taking the Digital Video Engineering Professional and Internet Protocol Engineering Professional exams.
