World-renowned programmes approved for ELC funding


11 Apr, 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 Training has been designing and delivering technical education programmes, included resettlement programmes, since 1996 and is the only industry dedicated technical education provider in the world to award both industry-recognised qualifications and official certifications. 

The company’s most popular resettlement programme, Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®), teaches everything needed to confidently and accurately prepare, install, test and certify copper and fibre-optic cabling systems. It is specifically for those wishing to demonstrate the highest levels of knowledge, skills and expertise in network infrastructure. 

The ten-day programme is extended into 20 days for Service leavers to include a two-week work placement with one of the top cable installation companies in the UK. This provides essential hands-on work experience, the ability to gain valuable contacts and, for some, an offer of employment. Successful completion of the programme provides 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).

CNCI® certification is recognised and endorsed by major companies throughout the network infrastructure sector across the UK and Ireland, and is proving popular in the US, too. It has become recognised as the must-have credential for cable installers, is stated as a requirement on many job specifications and is a must for teams within tender documentation for many new builds and refurbishments. 

The Royal Corps of Signals has also adopted the certification. Recognising the importance of the having professionally certified teams, it has entered into a collaborative agreement with CNet to internally deliver the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) programme to its installation technicians. 

The content of the programme has been designed in close collaboration with the industry and is constantly being updated to reflect the very latest technical changes. This ensures that the material is of the highest standard and continues to be recognised as the essential certification needed to achieve high-quality cable installations. 

CNet is also the originator of the Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework, which showcases a full suite of technical education programmes throughout the network cable infrastructure and data centre sectors, all of which have been approved by ELCAS. The Framework has been designed to provide the right skills and knowledge progression in line with industry career paths. Forces Leavers are able to use their ELC for programmes across the Framework, providing the perfect opportunity to further enhance knowledge, skills, credentials and help achieve career goals. For individuals who require guidance, the dedicated Forces Leavers team at CNet is able to help every step of the way. 

CNet Training’s ELC provider number is 1267. For more information see
