Launched in 2012 CNet Training's CNCI Adv™ course is designed for those wishing to demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and expertise regarding this fast moving sector.

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 course provides up-to-date information from CNet Training's team of expert instructors about the preparation and installation of copper and fibre optic cabling.

Those completing the Advanced Unit will also gain knowledge about configuration positioning and the implementation of network equipment utilising TCP/IP.

Once a delegate has become a CNCI Adv™ 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.

The course is perfect for those individuals wishing to acquire the state-of-the-art skills and knowledge to complete projects to the highest standards. It is also relevant for project managers and IT personnel who need to interpret network test results, as well as installation technicians, IT personnel, network engineers and those seeking excellence in LAN network design.

Delegates will learn how to

  • Successful delegates will be competent in all aspects of voice and data cable installation, commissioning and testing. They will also have extensive knowledge of modern LAN design and the devices used, and possess the ability to troubleshoot LANs within small to medium enterprises.


The CNCI Adv™ course is a 50/50% mix of theoretical learning and practical hands-on training, which is led by one of our expert instructors. It is divided into the following two units that can be taken independently in the following sequence:

Core Unit
This two-week course covers the essential elements of network cabling installation.

The first week teaches the fundamentals of cabling for IT networks and delegates will gain the skills and confidence to install and test copper cabling. The second week examines the essentials of installing, terminating and testing fibre optic cable within the LAN environment.

After completing the Core Unit delegates are awarded the CNCI™ designation.

Advanced Unit
This one-week course provides an introduction to Ethernet and wireless, including restrictions, methods of operation, bandwidth, maximum distances, data speeds and frame structures.
