Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of the SCTE/ISBE, and Bill Warga, chairman of the SCTE/ISBE board of directors and vice president of technology for Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA), will be among the opening-day speakers at the NCTC's Winter Educational Conference on Feb. 12 in San Antonio.

Dzuban will address the link between advanced training and deployment of new solutions during his introduction of the Technology Expert Insights panel. Moderated by Warga, the panel will feature Cash Hagan, CTO of WOW; JR Walden, senior vice president, Technology, for Mediacom; Jason Nealis, vice president, Operations and Video Engineering, for RCN; and Joe Canavan, COO of Blue Stream.

The panel will discuss how NCTC members are investing in their plant to drive ROI and maintain their business models. Additional topic areas will include current industry trends, technology areas that will be key to keeping up with future consumer demand, and recommendations for future technology investments.

"Advanced learning and development methodologies are fundamental to the seamless and successful rollout of products and services," said Dzuban. "By arming their workforces with the knowledge and skills to hit the ground running, large and small operators alike can innovate new services more rapidly, maximizing return on their technology investments."

The SCTE/ISBE's involvement in the Winter Educational Conference is the latest in a series of collaborative activities with the NCTC. Last year, the organizations announced a partnership designed to bring SCTE/ISBE technology training to NCTC member workforces and teamed to present a "Small- to Medium-Sized Operator Experience" at Cable-Tec Expo 2017 in Denver.

The learning and development agreement includes discounted prices for NCTC members for all SCTE/ISBE online training courses, featuring the new CORTEX VirtuLearn suite of tools in the CORTEX Expert Development System. The SCTE/ISBE will exhibit CORTEX VirtuLearn at its booth at the Winter Educational Conference.
