Course Overview
Structured cabling systems (SCS) are an integral part of modern enterprise businesses and are no longer the premise of the specialist engineer or technician.  The modern communication specialist needs to understand the basic architecture and the associated implementation and testing techniques of SCS just as much as he needs to understand any other network element. 

This is an entry level course designed to introduce the participants to the physical layer-1 installation standards and practices related to structured cabling systems.  The course material and practical activities are based around the ISO/IEC IS 11801 Ed 2 :2002 standard
