This month, representatives from Excel Networking Solutions were invited to deliver Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) in Solihull, Birmingham.
These training seminars are designed to enhance the skill level of Building Service Engineers and Consultants who either have a basic grounding in the installation of structured cabling solutions or are just starting to build their expertise.
The course content was developed by Paul Cave (RCDD, RTPM, CDCDP, CNID), Technical Product Manager at Excel. The format was devised to provide both generic information such as details on the latest relevant standards as well as specific information. The subject categories covered a variety of topics, including “What are Category 5e, Category 6 & Category 6A etc.”, “Power over Ethernet” and “Fibre Optic Refresher”.
Ian has an exceptional level of expertise in the field, and delivers course content with confidence to support the learning development of both those at an introductory stage and those at more advanced levels.
The course is modular by design, so seminar attendees could choose to either have a generic presentation covering all grounds, or they could elect to cover specific elements for more in depth coverage.
Ian McKiernan - Technical Support Manager, and Daniel McKeon - Business Development Support Executive, presented the seminar on behalf of Excel to a group of around 20 attendees. Speaking to the group, everyone agreed that the course objectives were met and that they would strongly recommend the course.
Mark Bates, from Couch Perry Wilkes, commented, “I found the content useful especially in making me more aware of the standards and what I should look out for. It was clear and concise. It was a good introduction to allow me to explore further.
