BICSI releases newly revised ICT Cabling Installation Program
BICSI, the association advancing the information and communications technology (ICT) community has released the latest update to its ICT Cabling Installation Program.
The goal of the program is to produce highly competent cabling installers, providing a career path consisting of four progressive courses and credentialing exams. The courses include Installer 1 (INST1) Non-Renewable Certificate, Installer 2 Copper (INSTC), Installer 2 Optical Fibre (INSTF) and Technician (TECH).
The program offers a complete suite of instructor-led installation classes, accommodating entry-level to expert-level experience. This approach allows students to begin with basic fundamentals and then builds upon that knowledge.
The ICT Cabling Installation Program has been updated to include a new and highly comprehensive training format and has been developed by experts in the field and from information found in BICSI’s award-winning Information Technology Systems Installation Methods Manual 7th edition.
“With our newly revised ICT Cabling Installation Program, BICSI is on the cutting edge of training for cabling installers and technicians. Individuals taking BICSI Installation courses can be certain they will be learning the most advanced techniques in the industry, as well as the latest codes, standards and best practices,” said BICSI president Brian Ensign.
Each course offers four-and-a-half days of intensive cabling installation training, followed by a hands-on and multiple choice credential exam. Participants will learn to conduct site surveys and install, terminate, and test copper and optical fibre cable to the highest level of specification
“This program is the product of hundreds of hours of development, testing, knowledge sharing and preparation from a very dedicated group of volunteers and staff members. I would like to sincerely thank them for all of their efforts in making this program the best yet,” said Brian.
