CNet Training, creators of the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) program, has invested over £220,000 in brand new high specification equipment to utilise on the program.
Students can benefit from utilising the very latest equipment; the Fluke DSX-5000 CableAnalyzer™ and the Fujikura Fusion Splicer 70S. The Fluke DSX-5000 Versiv™ tester improves the efficiency of copper certification with unmatched speed for testing Cat 6A and Class FA while meeting draft IEC Level V – the most stringent accuracy requirement. The Fujikura fusion splicer is fast and durable and reduces splicing time by up to seven seconds.
The CNCI® program was launched just over a year ago as the essential standardised education program and official certification for those working within network cable installation. It is endorsed by the industries major installation companies, manufacturers, consultants and associations and is now being specified within tender documentation.
Delivered at CNet Training’s Suffolk headquarters and at a dedicated facility at Barking & Dagenham College, the ten day CNCI® program reflects real-life scenarios in a fifty percent theory and practical split, in addition to teaching the correct standards and working practises needed by todays’ network cabling professionals. It provides cable installers with the knowledge and skills needed 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. Even cable installers with years of experience have gained valuable new knowledge and skills from the program.
Martin Smith, Network Infrastructure Business Development Manager says, “This is great news for all our CNCI® students. The investment in the latest equipment from Fluke and Fujikura doubles our practical ability allowing students to have direct access to the equipment and ensure a minimum student to equipment ratio of 2:1, perfect to gain vital hands-on skills.”
