UNIT 201: level 2 Principles of Communication Cabling
DURATION: 1 day including examination
This training course provides delegates with a fundamental understanding of cabling media and the basic principles that lie behind communications cabling and the basic workings of a network cabling system are explored. It can be taken independently or as a bundle with Unit 202 or 203 to gain the full level 2 award in Communication Cabling. The applications that harness communications cabling in a modern cabling system are also examined, providing a valuable insight into communications cabling and other media.
The course looks at the different types of copper cabling media including Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6A and other high bandwidth copper cabling systems. In addition, the course also takes a look at optical ﬁbre media, otherwise known as ﬁbre optic cabling, to include a summary of single mode (SM) and multimode (MM). As well as common communications cabling deﬁnitions and current communications cabling standards, this course gives delegates a comprehensive guide to communications cabling. Candidates are assessed by a timed examination.
Courses cover practical and theoretical content to suit individual requirements. We provide attendees with relevant knowledge ranging from splicing or testing a fibre cable to designing a data centre.
