Telecommunication and Network Cabling Technician

Every building in America is wired with either traditional copper wire or the newer fiber optic cable. As society becomes more and more reliant on instantaneous communication and data retrieval, the importance of this wire and cable grows.

Network cabling technicians install the networks, wires and cables that connect computers, telephones, and energy management systems. This program utilizes C-Tech, an international workforce development company specializing in curriculum development, to provide industry recognized certificates. Students use these certificates to begin careers in telecommunication, audio/visual and telephone industries, or have a head start on careers as they pursue further education.
