Omnitron Systems Technology, a provider of fiber optic connectivity solutions, announced that BICSI has approved Omnitron as a Continuing Education Credit Provider (CECP). Omnitron has produced online videos that provide BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CECs). The three videos currently approved for credentials are "Extending Distances to PoE Devices," "Increasing Fiber Capacity with CWDM" and "The Media Converter: Swiss Army Knife of Fiber Connectivity." The videos and CECs are provided free of charge.
"These videos are designed to enable continuing training on the latest network technologies for busy cabling professionals who may not have time to attend a scheduled class or webinar," said Ty Estes, Omnitron marketing director. "Our goal is to provide an easy method to earn BICSI credits at any time, and from any location with internet access." A CEC is earned by viewing a 60-minute video and completing a brief multiple choice test form. Upon receipt of the online form, Omnitron emails a BICSI CEC certificate within two business days.
Each video provides one BICSI CEC for Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD), Electronic Safety and Security (ESS) Designer, Network Technology Systems (NTS) Designer, Outside Plant (OSP) Designer, Installer 2 Copper/Fiber, Technician, and Certified Trainer. The videos are also approved for the new Registered Information Technology Professional (RITP) and Data Center Design Consultant (DCDC) credentials.
BICSI established its credential programs to provide a level of assurance to the industry and to consumers that an individual has knowledge in a designated area of information technology systems (ITS) design or installation. BICSI professional designations are valued internationally and are recognized throughout the ITS industry.
