SCTE’s Digital Video Engineering Professional certification exam goes live

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) exam for the new SCTE certification program, Digital Video Engineering Professional (DVEP), has been finalized and is now available for industry professionals interested in pursuing the new credential.

SCTE has placed the 100-question, multiple-choice online exam through a beta testing period recently to help fine-tune the final product. SCTE announced the new certification in late June during a special reception at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2006 in Denver.
