Midco field technicians have a lot of career growth. We empower and encourage employees to gain certifications and training that help them prepare for advancement opportunities.1

All Midco field technicians are required to complete levels of certifications to build confidence in their roles and ensure customer satisfaction. Certifications include a wide range of courses at varying education levels, depending on career progression.

  • The National Cable Television Institute (NCTI) certifications equip technicians with industry knowledge and skills to support their success.
  • The First Time Right certifications give technicians a better understanding of technical work, doing the work safely and providing professional services to customers.

Our technicians start out as a Field Technician I, installing, making changes to and disconnecting residential services. During the first year, technicians work on these certifications:

  • First Time Right Level I
