Thank you for your interest in CBRS.
Shared spectrum offers a low-cost option to deliver high speed broadband in rural and underserved communities who might otherwise have limited access. While demand for this type of infrastructure increases, so does the workforce demand.
To meet this need, Federated Wireless and Learning Alliance have partnered to provide CBRS CPI certification to LAC Broadband program students. By providing access to CPI training to large network service providers, WISPs and individuals seeking a career in telecoms, LAC and Federated Wireless are helping grow and strengthen the market for shared spectrum connectivity. In doing so, all players benefit in the ecosystem and provide real career opportunities and professional development for veterans and civilians.
“CBRS presents a unique way to expand LTE capability to many areas of the US, including rural broadband,” said Fred Arnold, Director of Operations for Learning Alliance. “Through this partnership, we hope to provide our students access to jobs that CBRS/DAS focused.”
Learning Alliance plans to certify over 2,000 CPIs over the course of its two-year partnership with Federated Wireless. This will place potential CBRS technicians into the field nationally and expand the footprint of this evolving technology. The LAC program offers students the capability to learn wireless, wired, broadband, and fiber systems through a blended lecture, online, and hands on simulation approach, and will include a hands-on simulation of a CBRS installation – from SAS to radio.
Learning Alliance plans to certify over 2,000 CPIs over the course of the two-year partnership that places potential CBRS technicians into the field nationally – expanding the footprint of this evolving technology. A final step in this approach will be providing Augmented and Virtual Reality solutions based around CBRS frameworks. These AR/VR training options provide a great hands-on approach to learning the complex skills that go into radio installation.

Low-Cost, High-Speed LTE with Shared Spectrum
WISPs offer fixed wireless solutions to serve rural and suburban markets where other solutions aren’t cost-effective. You need low-cost options to deliver high-speed broadband services in communities that are often underserved today.
