Certified Installer Course

Premise Wiring Systems Specialized Installer

LEVEL 13 DAY COURSE +16 hours of online instruction


Showcase your cutting-edge technical skills, and receive your professional TFS certification as a Premise Wiring Systems Installer!

The Premise Wiring Systems Installer training is designed for those who design, install or maintain copper and fiber optic systems in commercial buildings and outer facilities. It identifies you as an inside plant installer who demonstrates a practical knowledge of the copper and fiber optic theories, codes, standards and practices widely accepted in commercial buildings and customer-owned outside plants (campus environments).

In addition, this inside plant training incorporates hands-on training of copper and fiber terminations, cable preparations, installation practices and certification testing procedures. Students will learn skills applicable to all of the functions required to safely and competently install advanced copper and fiber communications cabling. All procedures and practices are based on the latest EIA/TIA commercial building cabling standards.
