Interested in how the cable-optic field works? Want to gain training to become a Communications Technician in this high-tech growth area?
Vermont Works for Women and Comcast are piloting a six week, preparatory class to train future female cable technicians!
Participants will gain hands-on training in relevant hand tools, ladders, safety, installation and inspection as well as blueprint reading, cable theory, terms and math. Fitness training, employability skills and CPR/First Aid will also be taught. Comcast technicians and staff will be an integral part of each class, providing excellent learning and networking opportunities. Successful graduates will have a competitive advantage in gaining an interview opportunity for a Comcast Communications Technician position.
We are looking for women who:
- Have their high school diploma or GED
- Have a valid driver’s license and satisfactory driving record
- Are in moderate physical condition and able to lift and carry heavy loads (we will do physical training in the class to prepare for eventual loads of 70lbs)
- Are open to working in crawl spaces and attics
- Do not have a fear of heights (or at least are very open to overcoming it)—employment in this field requires climbing to heights of 32 feet.
