Citing key trends driving convergence, the information transport systems association BICSI introduced a makeover of its ITS Cabling Installation Program. Three new installation courses and credentials—with specialized emphasis on copper and optical fiber—will help you keep up with innovations, trends and emerging technologies in cabling installation.

First
developed in 1996, the ITS Cabling Installation Program focuses
education on BICSI best practices and hands-on skills instruction for
the installation, termination, splicing, testing and retrofitting of
copper and optical fiber cable. Upon completion of each course,
students have the option to take an exam for certification.

Whether
new installation or existing premise, this course provides the
foundations of a copper-based structured cabling system installation.




IN250: BICSI ITS Installer 2, Optical Fiber Training Course

This
course provides students with the necessary skills to handle the
cabling systems of today and tomorrow. After passing the exam for this
course, individuals are given the option of sitting for the Fiber Optic
Association (FOA) exam and certification.




TE350: BICSI ITS Technician Training Course

Developing
full expertise and experience is the goal of this new BICSI ITS
Technician Training Course. Through study of specialized systems and
advanced topics of splicing, testing, and troubleshooting copper and
optical fiber structured cabling systems, students will be able to take
their performance to the next level as a structured cabling systems
technician.
