All new BICSI Installer 1, Installer 2; Copper; Installer 2, Optical Fiber; and Technician exams will be based on material from the Information Technology Systems Installation Methods Manual (ITSIMM), 8th edition, beginning Friday, April 29, 2022.
No courses based off the 7th edition will be available after Monday, March 7, 2022. The last day to take the version 7 hands-on exam will be March 11, 2022.
This course provides the necessary skillset of a structured cabling systems technician. A significant amount of course time will be spent on troubleshooting copper and optical fiber cable installations. In addition, this course will cover project planning and implementation at the technician level. Additional topics will include site safety, site surveys, blueprint reading, bonding and grounding (earthing) and firestopping practices.
“I’m happy to find out about what I’ve been doing wrong. Completing cabling installations correctly would make life much better for everyone I work with, consumers, fellow technicians and others. It’s refreshing when a fellow tech can walk in at your place of work and immediately make sense of what you do without much struggle. Our TE350 instructor is quite knowledgeable and involves us in the class. Plus the students get to talk to him about their experiences during breaks and ask him questions.”

"I’ve been in the telecom industry for almost 15 years, and I feel like I’ve been doing it all wrong. TE350 has opened my mind to a whole other level of cabling installation. TE350 is a great class to get updated on all kinds of structured cabling systems. Sometimes you just don’t have time to do your own research."
