The CNIT® program is an integral part of our Global Network Infrastructure & Data Centre Education Framework and forms a natural progression from the CNCI® (Certified Network Cable Installer) program towards the prestigious CNIDP® (Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional) program.

This comprehensive program is perfect for those with 2 years' experience within network infrastructure who wish to extend their knowledge, practical hands-on skills, qualifications and certifications into a wider installation environment. Delegates benefit from gaining a valuable insight into networking technologies including ethernet, TCP/IP, wireless, and VLANs. Intelligent building systems also feature including security & access control, CCTV, fire alarm systems, lighting control systems, environmental control & monitoring systems, and many other building management systems. Each subject area covers the latest standards and codes of practice, and ensures technicians are armed with everything they need to undertake installation projects to the highest possible standards.

In 5 days, network infrastructure professionals have the potential to add real value to their services by including these complex areas to their product/service portfolio.

On successful completion delegates can demonstrate the highest levels of competency and can feel confident that they possess the very latest technical abilities within these fields of installation. They also gain an internationally recognised BTEC Level 4 Professional qualification and CNIT® certification - providing the use of post nominal letters after your name and the use of the official CNIT® logo.

CNIT® 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. The process is simple and easy via an on-line learning management system allowing you to bring your 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 course material whenever needed, continued use of the CNIT® logo and post nominal letters for the next three years.
