The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) announced that it will provide Spanish-language training to 700 employees of Latin American operator Millicom.

The SCTE, along with its global arm, the International Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE), will provide Millicom workers with access to training in on-premises installation, cable distribution and wireless technologies. 

Millicom provides cable and mobile services in Latin America under the Tigo brand. 

“As we continue to expand our cable footprint through high-speed broadband technology, having access to SCTEI•ISBE training will sharpen the skills of our engineering professionals in response to all aspects of our Tigo operations, from legacy technologies to newer advances in mobility and cybersecurity,” said Xavier Rocoplan, executive VP and CTO of Millicom, in a statement. 

“Investing in well-trained staff helps ensure we’re delivering the highest level of service and an overall great experience to our subscribers,” Rocoplan added. 

“Millicom’s success has been fueled by its ability to capitalize on opportunities in underserved markets,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE•ISBE. “We look forward to working closely with them as they deploy products, services, and business strategies that connect the unconnected and create reliable, customer-friendly digital ecosystems.”
