As the popularity of the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI) program is continues to grow, CNet has again decided to increase its investment to support program delivery across the world.
The company says the investment includes the very latest equipment, recruitment of network infrastructure instructors and an increase in the number of delivery locations.
Following a nearly quarter of a million investment in 2016, the company has invested a further £225,000 in Fluke Versiv DSX-8000, Fluke Versiv OptiFiber Pro OTDR and CertiFiber Pro OLTS and Fujikura 70S Splicer, bringing CNet’s grand total to 24 Fluke Versivs and 18 Fujikura Splicers.
CNet recognises that the popularity CNCI has led to the expansion of five CNCI education centres in the UK and Ireland, as well as the delivery of the program in North America, expressing additional plans for two more education centres to open in the UK later this year. The attractiveness of the program has also led to the recent addition of three network infrastructure instructors that were needed to deliver the program.
Such investments mean that CNet will be able to deliver the CNCI program at multiple locations simultaneously, the company say this will make the program it more accessible and commutable for learners.
The CNCI program, which is endorsed by companies throughout the network infrastructure sector, is designed for those wishing to demonstrate the highest level of knowledge, skills and expertise in network infrastructure. Supported by manufacturers, installation companies, consultants and associations the CNCI continues to be specified within tender documentation.
CNet’s international lead in network infrastructure, Martin Smith, acknowledged the investment saying, “This is another step forward for the CNCI which will help us support our current growth in locations and further expansion as we continue to meet the growing demand for the program. We have had close working relationships with both Fluke and Fujikura for a number of years, their equipment is high quality and we are delighted to utilise it as part of the program content.”
