Demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and competency in network cable infrastructure. Undertake copper and fibre cabling installation, termination and testing to the highest quality whilst complying to industry best practice and standards to ensure a right first-time approach.
The Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) has become the industry preferred certification for network cable installation and is specified as a requirement on many job profiles and installation project contracts. In addition, manufacturers, major installation companies, associations and consultants endorse the certification knowing that it provides the right level of technical knowledge, competence and confidence to the industry. In recognition of the CNCI® certification many manufacturers also award accreditations towards their product warranties.
The CNCI® program blends a perfect mix of technical knowledge and practical activities for both copper and fibre component installation. Official CNCI® certification proves that an individual is certified to undertake network cable infrastructure projects to the highest calibre whilst working to the current national and international industry standards and industry best practice. During the program learners will be provided a valuable opportunity to access the latest industry standards.
Having successfully completed this program, and with the appropriate level of experience, it is highly recommended that you continue your professional development by advancing your knowledge and skills to gain further official certifications and qualifications by progressing through The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps education programs to career advancement throughout the network infrastructure and data centre sectors.
The CNCI® program is led by CNet’s expert Instructors.

The CNCI® program is 10 days in duration, however it can be split into two units and taken separately:
The CNCI® program is perfect for individuals wishing to acquire the very latest skills and knowledge to enable them to complete both copper and fibre cable installation projects to the highest standards. It is relevant to new entrants to the network cable infrastructure sector in addition to those already working within the cable installation environment wishing to formalise their knowledge and skills.
No previous experience is required to attend this program.
Learners are required to bring a laptop or suitable device with unrestricted internet connectivity, with a suitable application for opening and reading PDFs. Typically, your device’s in-built PDF reader is sufficient. If preferred a smartphone can be used, however a smaller screen may not give the best learning experience.
Successful learners will have the knowledge and skills to confidently install, test and certify a complete copper and fibre cable installation. This forms part of the entry level requirement into the Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which allows learners to progress their knowledge, education and skills in line with their career within these fast moving industries.

“The CNCI programme provides a high standard of learning and working practices as required by today’s network cabling professional. This enables contractors to demonstrate their competence, apply the appropriate standards and offer a good level of assurance to their clients. The programme also facilitates entry to most leading manufacturer partner programmes, providing the fundamental knowledge and skill base without the need for further duplication of training, reducing the cost burden to ECA members. The ECA backs this CNCI formal training initiative and will continue to work closely with CNet Training to influence, support and represent this important growing sector.”

“The CommScope Infrastructure Academy recognizes that industry based training and apprentice schemes, where students benefit from practical ‘hands-on’ instruction, play a vital role in raising the skill levels of field personnel across the industry. Installer training schemes such as CNet Training’s CNCI® cover much of the general cabling installation techniques, codes and guidelines. CNCI® certified individuals can utilise CommScope’s Infrastructure Academy’s Flexible Course Facility to modify the installation training rather than attend the 2-day installation course.”
