Tampa, Florida, March 27, 2017—BICSI, the association advancing the information and communications technology (ICT) community, releases 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. This approach allows students to begin with basic fundamentals and build upon that knowledge.

- Installer 1 (INST1) Non-Renewable Certificate
- Installer 2, Copper (INSTC)
- Installer 2, Optical Fiber (INSTF)
- Technician (TECH)
- New and highly comprehensive training format, including talking points and discussion topics.
- Learn to conduct site surveys and install, terminate, and test copper and optical fiber cable to the highest level of specification.
- Each course offers four-and-a-half days of intensive cabling installation training, followed by a hands-on and multiple choice credential exam.
- Developed by experts in the field and from information found in BICSI’s award-winning Information Technology Systems Installation Methods Manual (ITSIMM), 7th edition.
