BICSI is now offering IN101: BICSI ITS Installer 1 Training, a five-day course for those with little or no cabling installation experience. It is designed to provide students with the necessary background, knowledge and basic skills needed to function effectively on the job.

 

Course topics include Industry orientation, Codes and Standards/Industry best practices, Safety, Professionalism, Structured premises cabling systems, Media and Job site skills.

 

“The IN101 course is BICSI’s comprehensive orientation to the ITS industry,” said Richard Dunfee, the organization’s director of professional development. “It is structured in a way that makes it very easy for someone to get their foot in the door and start a successful cabling career.”

 

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to sit for the ITS Installer 1 exam in order to attain the ITS Installer 1 designation.

 

Pricing for the course is $950 and awards 35 BICSI continuing education credits (CECs) for RCDD, ITS Installer or ITS Technician credential holders. Students must be able to distinguish between different colours and possess manual dexterity to complete fine motor tasks.
