Welcome to the new USTTI.org - Our hope is that this site will serve as a platform for new content that shares training materials, links USTTI Alumni and enables us to extend the USTTI’s outreach. We encourage all alumni to join us as we continually build the site and grow our connections.

The USTTI’s 2020 tuition-free course offerings are available here at USTTI.org, where we are accepting applications for our 38th year of tuition-free training.

The 2020 curriculum offers course innovations addressing Emerging Technologies, 5G and Emergency Communications! Importantly, USTTI courses in the areas of spectrum management, communications policy and regulation, cybersecurity, competition policy, satellite communications and broadband deployment have been maintained and expanded.

The USTTI’s tuition-free curriculum would not be possible without the dedication of leaders and subject matter experts from government, industry and academia in the United States. On an annual basis, these women and men and their organizations generously volunteer their time, expertise and resources for USTTI scholars from every corner of the developing world. The USTTI would especially like to thank our Industry and Government Board Members: Amazon; American Tower Corporation; AT&T; Comcast Corporation; The Federal Communications Commission (FCC); Facebook; Ericsson; Google; GSMA; ICANN; Intel Corporation; The Internet Society (ISOC); The National Telecommunications and Information Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce; Microsoft; OneWeb; The Office of International Communications and Information Policy, U.S. Department of State; QUALCOMM Incorporated; Verizon Communications; and The Walt Disney Company whose continued support will allow the USTTI to offer close to 60 tuition-free courses in 2020.
