Excel training awarded BICSI education credits

21 February 2019

Excel Networking Solutions’ cabling partner certification course has been recognised for four BICSI continuing education credits (CECs).

Excel says its partner programme comprises organisations that are experienced providers of design, installation and testing services for its entire range of passive copper, conventional, pre-terminated and high density MTP optical fibre solutions. A pre-requisite of partner status is training under the Excel Cabling Partner (ECP) certification course.

The course is run online by Excel. Alternatively, engineers can opt to take part in a two-day face-to-face course which is run by Excel’s independent training partner, CNet Training.

“Our ECPs undertake extensive training to maintain their partner status and keep up to date with the latest advances in industry technology,” says Excel technical manager Paul Cave. “Our customers’ understanding of this training is verified through an examination process to demonstrate knowledge of the Excel system and how to design, install and test the infrastructure in accordance with Excel guidelines, best practice and, above all, standards compliance.”

Cave adds that ECPs are required to retake the training course every two years to ensure they maintain their partner status. BICSI is the worldwide association for cabling design and installation professionals. The organisation is claimed to be the global leader in ICT education and certification, supporting the advancement of the community.
