DD102: Designing Telecommunications Distribution Systems Virtual Training

Course Description

DD102 is an intensive, hands-on course focused on the design of structured cabling systems. Offering hands-on skill building activities from day one, this knowledge-intensive course instructs you in real-world tasks, preparing you for design roles outside of the classroom. Assignments from the award-winning Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual (TDMM) augment your learning, allowing you to prepare questions for the classroom.

Through the use of case studies, schematic and construction drawings, and real-life scenarios, you will learn to design codes and standards-compliant telecommunications infrastructure, beginning where the cabling enters the building to any telecommunications environment within the building. In addition to structured cabling, all facets of design for the support infrastructure, including telecommunications spaces, pathways, bonding, and grounding, and firestopping are included in the course. DD102 has been structured to maximize your take-away from the class. Students work together to complete a final group project, allowing immediate use of new knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.
