Course Overview

The Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) program and certification is helping to shape the future of the network cabling infrastructure industry by introducing professional and industry recognised certification to cable installers. The CNCI® is designed for those wishing to demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and expertise in network cabling infrastructures.

The CNCI® offers the perfect solution for network cabling organisations to help ensure they continue to deliver quality of service and confidence to the market place, in addition to helping secure an organisation’s professional reputation. The CNCI® program is comprehensive and blends a perfect mix of theoretical study and practical installation, testing and survey exercises providing the right level of knowledge and skills for both copper and fibre cable installation practices. Official CNCI® certification proves that an individual is qualified to undertake cable installation projects to the highest possible calibre whilst working to the current industry standards including BS EN, TIA and ISO, whilst following the latest codes of best practice. During the program students will also have access to current standards for reference purposes. In addition major manufacturers endorse the certification knowing that it provides the right level of technical knowledge, competence and confidence to the industry whilst demonstrating capability and credibility. Many also recognise it towards their own product training. This program is a must for individuals currently working within, or wishing to enter, the cable installation and infrastructure environments.
