The CNCI® program and associated certification is helping to shape the future of the network infrastructure industry by introducing professional and industry recognised certification to cable installers (individuals and companies). Once achieved the CNCI® certification ensures individuals are qualified to work to the correct cabling standards and follow the recommended codes of practice when undertaking cable installation projects.

With a team of professionally trained and certified individuals the risks are significantly reduced and organisations can feel confident that their staff are competent. When you consider the huge risks associated with not employing professionally qualified people staff, coupled with the impressive return on investment you can gain from utilising trained staff, the answer is to have trained and qualified employees you can rely on to deliver consistent results. The CNCI® offers the perfect solution to network cabling organisations to help ensure they continue to deliver quality of service and confidence to the market place, in addition to helping secure your organisations professional reputation.

The CNCI® is designed for those wishing to demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and expertise in network infrastructure. Network cabling installers are involved with the design and deployment of the communications cabling infrastructures that form the basis of IT local area network (LAN) infrastructures. This program provides the very latest information about the preparation and installation of network infrastructure cabling.

The program is 50% theoretical learning and 50% practical hands-on training, which is led by one of CNet Training's expert instructors.

Successful CNCI® delegates gain the official CNCI® certification in addition to the use of a post nominal title i.e. Martin Smith CNCI. They also gain two internationally recognised qualifications.

For new entrants to the industry, when becoming a CNCI®, they are likely to be able to lead a team within six months from course completion, whilst managing projects is a distinct possibility after approximately 18 months of on-the-job experience.

CNCI® certification enters the delegate into a commitment to life-long learning and offers the perfect portal to ensure knowledge, skills and certification remain current and up-to-date. Each certification requires re-certifying every three years via an on-line learning management system allowing re-certifying delegates to bring their knowledge up-to-date to reflect the very latest changes and technical developments within the industry. Successful delegates can benefit from having continued access to the training material whenever needed, continued use of the CNCI® logo and a post nominal title for the next three years.
