Gain detailed knowledge in the field of telecommunications network
To operate successfully, all methods of communication require a source and a destination with a pathway in between. The source is most often a smart device such as a phone, tablet, scanner, camera, card reader etc. The destination (the point of processing the data) could be a telephone exchange or storage and processing equipment in a data center. The media pathway can be fiber optic or copper cables, or quite often wireless links.
This program provides a broad understanding of the principles of communications systems, an understanding of voice and data communications technologies, and how to relate that information to the complexity of the physical network required. It explores the physical infrastructure components that combine to create the pathways, containment systems and network cabling infrastructure.
Being a distance learning program, learners also benefit from online tutor support throughout, read more about Distance Learning here.
This program has been designed for individuals who are either new to the network infrastructure
sector or are seeking to develop their knowledge in relation to telecommunications networks. If you would like to discuss your experience or suitability for this program please contact us.

This program consists of 8 hours of distance learning. Study can be undertaken at your convenience over a period of time. Once booked, an online link with a password is sent to you which unlocks the relevant material for you to start your study. At the end of study there is a short quiz.
Learners are required to have a webcam enabled laptop or suitable device with unrestricted wireless internet connectivity, the latest internet browser and a suitable application for editing standard office documents such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
The program de-mystifies the technical terminology that permeates all extents of network infrastructure, using simple language, clear explanations, and useful analogies.
Learners will gain a comprehensive overview of the network infrastructure sector, a broad understanding of the principles of communications systems, an understanding of voice and data communications technologies, and how to relate that information to the complexity of the physical network required. As well as a CNet Certificate, you will also gain use of the official Network Infrastructure Fundamentals Digital Badge.
There are no specific pre-requisites for this program however some awareness of the network infrastructure industry would be advantageous.
