Take your existing network infrastructure skills to new technical levels, developing a “smart hands” approach to infrastructure delivery and gain a comprehensive knowledge of a range of intelligent devices that support smart building technical architecture.
The Certified Integrated Infrastructure Technician (CIIT®) program develops knowledge and practical skills required to deliver network infrastructure projects that include the installation and commissioning of intelligent network devices. It’s a comprehensive five-day program perfect for those with at least two years of verifiable experience within the network infrastructure sector, or relevant qualifications and certifications in a wider project environment.
A certified CIIT® also considers the requirements for compliance, having a full understanding of national and international regulations, codes and standards. During the program learners will be provided a valuable opportunity to access the latest industry standards.
Learners will explore the effect of bandwidth demand on the network based on the operating parameters of a range of intelligent devices. In addition, the effects of power demand by Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices on the cable infrastructure will also be addressed.
Practical hands-on sessions are incorporated throughout this program, focusing on PoE network equipment architecture. Learners will install smart devices including wireless access points, AV systems, CCTV cameras and access control systems, and will be responsible for interpreting manufacturer’s instructions to mount equipment correctly and in a position that optimises the operational function of the device. They will connect each device to the structured wiring network, prove connectivity and maintain as-fitted documents as they expand the infrastructure.
Learners will also configure smart devices using the system’s graphic user interface and carry out tasks from a technical requirements document including activating switch ports for POE and LAN connections, adopting devices into service, creating device identifications and assigning IP addresses. Some common features and settings of devices will also be explored.
Following this program, you are encouraged to continue your professional development by advancing your knowledge and skills to gain further official certifications and qualifications by progressing through The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps education programs to career advancement throughout the network infrastructure and data centre sectors.
The CIIT® program is classroom-based and led by one of CNet’s expert Instructors.
