NACTEL:  Knowledge That Keeps You Ahead of the Curve


November 15, 2013

NACTEL offers associate, bachelor and masters programs to keep your skills current.

As the economy continues its steady recovery, demand for telecommunications workers is picking up. But many of the best jobs are only open to people who keep up with the industry’s rapidly changing technology.


One of the best ways to stay up-to-date is through the programs at the National Coalition for Telecommunications Education and Learning, a program created by the IBEW, the Communications Workers of America and the telecom industry. IBEW members get discounted access to a variety of degree programs, from associate through to a Master of Science in Internet technology.

NACTEL’s education programs are completely online and run by Pace University, named by U.S. News and World Report as the top online bachelor’s degree program in the country.

Classes are scheduled to work for working people and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. New courses start five times a year. Many programs are even covered by employer tuition reimbursement programs and students can also apply for federal student aid.

Visit to learn more about these programs. Pace University and NACTEL staff will host avirtual open house Nov. 25 to answer questions about programs, tuition and admission requirements.

Available programs are listed here.  Apply for federal student aid here.
