Fiber for Breakfast 2023 Week 6: Scaling Broadband Workforce Development for BEAD and Beyond

FBA is hard at work developing a plan to enable our members to scale the fiber workforce to meet the challenges of the current and future fiber buildouts. FBA OpTIC Path™ course and certification graduates are starting to enter the workforce, and we hope to significantly increase their numbers in the very near term. This episode of FFB will discuss FBA’s workforce development plans and how you can help us meet the workforce development challenges ahead of us.
