CNet Training are collaborating with Crossrail and Women Into Construction to help get more women into network cabling.
The ‘Women into Network Cabling’ project, run by CNet Training in association with Kath Moore at Women into Construction is assisting a number of unemployed women who are actively seeking work in the construction industry. After an initial interview and assessment day the chosen women will attend the CNet Training Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) program, which is the recognised certification program that has been approved and specified by the sector as the ‘must-have’ operational level certification for those working in Network Cabling. Once completed, those who successfully pass will gain the official CNCI® certification with full use of the CNCI® logo, a post nominal title i.e. Natasha Smith CNCI, plus two optional Level 3 BTEC Advanced Award qualifications. The project will also guarantee each newly certified lady a two-week work placement where they will be considered for possible employment.
The ten day CNCI® program will take place at CNet Training’s dedicated education facility at Barking and Dagenham College.
Women into Network Cabling is run by Women Into Construction, an independent not-for-profit organisation, that provides support to women wanting to work in the construction industry to create a more gender-equal work force.
