BICSI and InfoComm set to release cable installation training online course
Cabling design and installation association BICSI has partnered with InfoComm International to release a brand new online course focusing on category cable and AV.
‘How to Install and Validate Category Cable for AV’ provides fundamental education for installation technicians working with category cable in the AV industry. The 10-hour comprehensive course starts off with the basics of cabling, getting familiar with cable connectors and category cable terminology. It then moves into instruction on terminating and testing cables, cable linking and installation and troubleshooting cables. The course also includes lessons on InfoComm’s new standard F501.01:2015 Cable Labelling for Audiovisual Systems.
This course also includes a skills demonstration component. Students will take photos or video of their termination and validation tests which will be reviewed by instructors. To enrich the learning experience, the course also features 10 demonstration videos.
“BICSI is pleased to continue our long-time collaboration with InfoComm and provide best practice-based information for this course,” said BICSI president Brian Ensign. “Knowledge of category cable is critical for ICT and AV professionals alike and partnerships with other associations, like InfoComm, are vital to advance education and ensure information consistency across our industries.”
“InfoComm is committed to providing AV professionals with rich educational resources,” said InfoComm International chief executive David Labuskes. “It’s important for InfoComm to work with associations like BICSI to share best practices and incorporate them into our training. This ensures more technical professionals out in the field are following universal standards. We’re looking forward to partnering with BICSI on additional educational programs in the future.”
