CNet delivers the Network Cable Installer (NCI®) Apprenticeship, a 12-15 month level 3 program that is creating the next generation of competent, confident, and qualified network cable installation professionals.

Since the Network Cable Installer (NCI®) Apprenticeship launched in 2019 CNet has been delivering much of the off-the-job training required as part of the Apprenticeship, however operating now as a Main Provider of Apprenticeships allows CNet to take full responsibility for the end-to-end management and delivery of the Apprenticeship.

The Apprenticeship was designed in close collaboration with major companies from the network cabling sector. It recognises network cable installation as a role and provides industry-approved certification and qualification which standardises technical education for network cable installers.

It is perfect for individuals wishing to acquire the knowledge to enable them to complete both copper and fibre cable installation projects and demonstrate the highest levels of skills and expertise in network cabling infrastructures. The NCI® Apprenticeship is deemed to be an ‘Apprenticeship in a Box’, purely because all the planning has already been completed in readiness for both employers and employees to follow. This includes a detailed timetable of professional development activity to enhance knowledge and skills and become professionally qualified and certified, it therefore alleviates the need for the employer to dedicate valuable time and effort in this essential planning stage and allows the apprentice to commence straight away.
