What is the CNCI®?

The Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) is the must-have certification for all those working within the sector and is endorsed by many of the sector’s major organisations

Born out of close collaboration with the sector and CNet Training’s experience and expertise, the CNCI® is the first official certification designed specifically for the network cabling sector.

It’s a ten day program that is dedicated to providing cable installers with everything they need to confidently and accurately prepare, install, test and certify copper and fibre cabling systems, specifically for those wishing to demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and expertise in network infrastructure.

Blending a perfect mix of theoretical study and practical exercises the CNCI® certifies individuals’ ability to work to the correct cabling standards and follow the recommended codes of practice when undertaking cable installation projects.

As with any certification received from CNet Training, the CNCI® requires re-certifying every three years. CNet Training has designed and developed a simple on-line re-certification process. This is cost effective for CNCI® individuals, costing just £95 every three years, and utilises an easily accessible Learning Management System (LMS).

The LMS allows individuals to log on and undertake the re-certification at a convenient time and place for them. The process provides new learning with tests at the end of each module, and access to the very latest program material.

Re-certification is a proven process that CNet Training has utilised across the entire Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework with programs such as the Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional (CNIDP®), the  Certified Data Centre Technician Professional (CDCTP®) right through to the advanced Certified Data Centre Energy Professional (CDCEP®).
