Network Infrastucture Design Course

Course Outline

This is a competency course based on 5 units of competency and designed as a Network Infrastructure Design Course,
allowing a student to competently design a cabling infrastructure to AS/NZS standards.

This course is defined under the Australian Qualifications Training Framework (ATQF).
The 5-day or 10 evening DESIGN training course will enable you to understand interconnecting cabling requirements, identify solutions,
and design the network infrastructure and services to ensure the functionality of the proposed solutions.

For technicians doing the ICT 30515 Certificate III in Telecommunications Technology this course
can take the place of the Open Registration Training Course if you already hold an Open Registration
