Leading providers of connectivity solutions for high-quality communication networks, R&M (Reichle & De-Massari AG) has recognised the importance of the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) certification from CNet Training and is endorsing it as a suitable pre-requisite to attaining the R&M Qualified Partner Program (QPP) status.
R&M has been developing and producing cabling solutions for high-end communication networks for over 50 years. The company’s QPP training program includes both theory and practical to give the attendees an all-round appreciation of their products and best installation practises. Those who are CNCI® certified are able to demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and expertise in networkinfrastructure and therefore have an advantage over those without the certification when applying for R&M’s QPP.
Andrew Sedman, Head Technical Support and Training, said: “We have partnered with CNet Training and are pleased to endorse the CNCI® as a key certification prior to attaining the R&M QPP status. We recognise the importance for skilled network technology and structured cabling professionals within the industry and seek to achieve this through the CNCI® and our own QPP.”
Launched just over a year ago, the CNCI® provides the standardised education for network cable installation professionals and provides official certification plus two level three industry recognised BTEC Advanced Award qualifications, which are widely recognised across the industry. The CNCI® ten day program is fifty percent practical and fifty percent theory based and split into five days focussing on copper cabling, followed by five days on fibre optic cabling. CNCI® certified professionals can demonstrate and prove they have the highest level of knowledge, skills and expertise in network infrastructure.
CNet Training’s Managing Director, Andrew Stevens, said: “The support CNet Training is receiving from R&M reinforces that the CNCI® is an essential certification for individuals working within the network cable installation environment. The CNCI® is shaping the future of the network infrastructure and we have big plans for the program moving forward as well as the network infrastructure education framework as a whole.”
