In our Telecommunications Technician training course our students will master the basics of electronic and electro-mechanical technology, telecommunications technology (Telephony) coupled with the specific job skills and experience needed for the installation, repair and maintenance of telecommunications systems and commercial/residential cabling systems, surveillance systems, including electronic telephone systems, KSU, PBX's, electronic security alarm systems and data cabling systems, Local Area Network (LAN) technology, WiFi and MiFi, repair and maintenance, PC Computer upgrades, repair and maintenance, and Fiber Optics.
In 2011, QBITTI added a new component to the Telecommunications Training Program. Students who graduate from the program are now able to apply for the Fiber Optic Associations Certified Premises Cabling Technician (CPCT) certification. This nationally recognized certification provides our students with the standardized installation procedures adopted by the Structured Cabling Association, as well as the TIA standard. the CPCT certification is not a requirement for graduation, but it is strongly encouraged by staff for its students.
Our job specific training emphasizes "hands-on" skills training where students spend a significant amount of time actually working on telecommunications equipment. This takes place in a classroom/workshop type of setting where students have the benefit of participating in both lecture and also a Lab/hands-on shop area.
