The Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional (CNIDP®) program is designed to arm telecommunications and data communications engineers with the full skill-sets, knowledge and industry recognised certification to complete detailed design and well-planned telecommunications and data communications design projects.
The program explores the complex issues involved when designing whilst planning for both internal (ISP) and external (OSP) cabling infrastructures examining the role of the designer and the multitude of disciplines required for a multifaceted design to meet the respective customer requirements.
Students benefit from a clear and detailed understanding of the design principles (from inception to commissioning and customer hand-over), including the analysis of the customer needs assessment and understanding the site survey process, thereby allowing them to comprehend and implement the design scope in addition to understanding the RFP/RFQ process for successful vendor selection.
The importance of working hand-in-hand with the architect and customer is also emphasised in relation to planning the optimal internal and external cabling infrastructure solutions to deliver flexibility and resilience across a wide range of services. This includes understanding the roles of the Design Team personnel, Architect, Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) Engineers, Consultants and Key Stakeholders. Whilst appreciating Building Automation Systems (BAS), Building Information Modelling (BIM), plus considerations of Fire and Security Systems.
The program also introduces the complexity of conducting client interviews with all relevant Key Stakeholders to obtain the vital information regarding the project requirements allowing the formulation of the appropriate design solution. It also incorporates areas of inspection during the site surveys, in-depth examining of the physical limitations or constraints of the building, documentation and design process considerations.
The student will also gain the ability to analyse key issues surrounding the expected performance criteria for the immediate and future requirements whilst considering and evaluating the structured cabling and component performance capabilities.
Throughout the program students will also learn and appreciate the perspective of being both on a design team, working on behalf of the customer, and being an installation design professional who provides design/build services to a wide range of customers across numerous industry platforms. They will also examine the benefits of various design solutions, types of 'Request for Tender' methodologies, such as 'Request for Proposal' (RFP) and 'Request for Quotation' (RFQ). In addition, students will understand the importance of the bid evaluation process and appreciate the need for thorough, detailed and accurate submittals to the client's project team.
The program also emphasises the importance of consistency throughout the project lifecycle of cable installation project, from execution and commissioning through to hand-over and closure and teaches how to manage the design right through to bid evaluation and vendor selection stages.
The CNIDP® forms part of the Global Network Infrastructure and Data Centre Education Framework which allows students to progress their knowledge, education and skills in line with their career within these fast moving industries.
The Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional (CNIDP®) training program is 8 days in duration, split into a 5 day core unit (CNID®) and a 3 day professional unit (CNIDP®).
