“Awareness of BICSI and its training and credentialing programs in the Middle East has grown massively over the past five years, creating a solid infrastructure of ICT professionals striving to be recognized as BICSI trained and credentialed. This recognition by the consultant base is driving specifications to demand BICSI-trained personnel.”

“I strongly believe BICSI has changed my life by giving me knowledge to be able to grow in the telecommunications field. Through my mentors and the BICSI courses I have completed, I have been able to cultivate my knowledge of telecommunications to levels I didn’t think possible.”

“The BICSI classes I have taken in both the design and installation of ICT systems have made me a more knowledgeable, valuable and respected participant in our industry. Could I have learned some of this by simply reading the standards? Sure, but BICSI design classes taught me why the standards are important, and BICSI installation classes taught me how to perform best practice-based installations to assure I meet those standards. BICSI training is an invaluable resource.”
