Full range of CNet courses gain ELCAS approval


19 Aug, 2019

World-leading technical education provider, CNet Training, has announced ELCAS approval for its full range of programmes spanning the network cable installation and data centre sectors.

CNet has been announced as an Approved Provider by ELCAS, allowing ELC to be used towards its range of technical education programmes across its Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework. The world-renowned programmes provide the perfect opportunity to enhance and broaden skills already gained in the Forces, and give extended knowledge, official certifications and qualifications to help promote career opportunities. 

Programmes available to Forces leavers from CNet span the entire education framework from the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) level 3 BTEC programme all the way through to the world’s only level 7 master’s degree program in Data Centre Leadership and Management.

The CNCI® is one of CNet’s most popular resettlement programmes and teaches everything the learner needs to be able to confidently and accurately prepare, install, test and certify copper and fibre-optic cabling systems. The standard CNet 10-day CNCI® programme has been exclusively adapted for Forces leavers, offering learners an extended 20-day programme, which includes a two-week work placement with one of the UK”s top installation companies. On successful completion, learners receive official certification with a post-nominal title, two level 3 BTEC qualifications and ECS card eligibility (an ECS card is required to allow individuals to work on-site).

CNet Training CEO Andrew Stevens adds, ‘We are pleased to be able to offer our range of technical education programmes to Forces leavers, to utilise their ELC. It’s such a great opportunity for individuals to gain the very latest technical knowledge, qualifications and professional credentials to prove their skills within their new careers.’

To register to use your ELC check the ELCAS website using your learner account details: From there, you can search for CNet in the providers’ list (its provider number is 1267).
