A new Certified Integrated Infrastructure Technician Program (CIIT®) has been launched by leading international technical education company CNet Training.


The brand-new course is a five day technical education program, centred around the installation and commissioning of smart building technical architecture and will be delivered by one of CNet’s expert Instructors in July at their dedicated Network Infrastructure Centre in East London.

With a 50/50 theory and practical split, the program provides the vital hands-on skills needed to really understand the very latest intelligent systems. It allows existing network cable installers to develop increased technical knowledge and capability to deliver multi-disciplined projects and therefore provides the opportunity for installation companies to expand their portfolio and seek greater opportunities when tendering for projects.

The program is designed to expand existing cable installation and commission skills to a range of intelligent devices that support Smart Building technical architecture, such as wireless access devices, VoIP telephony, CCTV camera, door access controls and biometric security 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.

Successful completion of the Certified Integrated Infrastructure Technician (CIIT®) program also provides a Level 4 BTEC Professional Award, official CIIT® certification and use of a post nominal title.

The program forms part of the globally renowned Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps technical education programs, official certifications and internationally recognised qualifications to knowledge and career progression routes throughout the industry, providing designations that have become key skills reference points that allow those holding them to clearly demonstrate their ability and experience.

Andrew Stevens, CEO at CNet Training comments, “The Certified Integrated Infrastructure Technician (CIIT®) has been designed and launched as a result of our customer demand, and I am delighted that we have achieve this within twelve months of initial discussions about it.  Every year we hold an invitation only Infrastructure Technology Curriculum Forum where we invite industry influencers to come together to discuss evolving trends and the needs of the sector from a technical and skills perspective. This highlighted the need to develop both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills centred around smart technology. Initially the CNet technical team is delivering the program in East London however we are likely to expand this to our other Network Infrastructure centres across the UK and Ireland in the future.”

CNet Training is the global leader in designing and delivering network infrastructure and data centre education programs and has been delivering industry education since 1996. CNet is the only industry dedicated education provider in the world to offer both internationally recognised qualifications and official certifications.
