The theory element of both our Copper Structured Cabling and Fibre Optic Cabling courses are available now as ‘instructor led’ online options.

Most will want to complete both the theory and the practical but it is now possible to undertake the theory only (ideal for PM’s, Directors, IT Teams), as well as engineers wanting both parts, which is completely up to date with the latest standards.

Part 1:
The Theory of Copper Structured Cabling, delivered remotely via Zoom.

Followed by:

An online test, done in your own time.
Part 1 is available to be booked and completed immediately, from your home/remote office – all you will need is a computer, tablet or device to allow you to use Zoom.

Duration: Theory demonstration will last approximately 3 hours. The online test is comprised of 30 questions.

Part 2:
Practical (Copper or Fibre)
Practical – completed either at our headquarters in Braintree, Essex or elsewhere by arrangement. 

Duration: approximately 3.5 hours.

Part 2 can be booked immediately and completed as soon as the current government restrictions are lifted.


Correct installation procedures are a fundamental part of today’s structured cabling industry. We are committed to ensuring that our cabling systems are installed quickly, professionally and in compliance with the rapidly changing standards proposed by the ISO/IEC and EIA/TIA.

Modern building designs often include consideration for cabling infrastructures to support voice and data distribution. It is increasingly the case that tender documents, project specifications and detailed plans make reference to relevant standards and terminology that anyone working in this field should be aware of.

Features & Benefits:

  • Gives delegates the confidence to install and test Connectix Cabling Systems correctly.
  • Coverage of industry standards, installation techniques and test equipment
  • Introduction to typical structured cabling system infrastructure elements.
  • Practical exercises including cable installation and termination, testing and fault identification
  • 7 BICSI CEC Credits available for completion.


Course Description

SC01 is a one day structured cabling installation course with the following key elements. A mixture of theory presentation, worked examples, practical demonstration and delegate hands on exercises are used to relate theory to real world scenarios.

The SC01 course aims to offer a balanced mix of theory and practice relating to the structured cabling system standards EIA/TIA-568C, ISO/IEC 11801 2nd edition and EN50174. This course requires no prior knowledge or experience. It is intended that inexperienced delegates will leave with adequate knowledge, confidence and practical experience for future supervision and assessment of system installations.

Delegates new to Structured Cabling and those already experienced in practical installation will improve their formal knowledge of the standards and cable installation / termination practice. The course is run by a fully qualified Connectix Cabling Systems Structured Cabling Trainer who is constantly updated in line with the rapidly changing standards, technologies and terminologies Upon completion of the course an examination is offered for assessment purposes. Successful delegates are awarded a certificate acknowledging their competence, this can then be used to obtain Connectix Approved Installer status.

Practical Exercise – Key Activities

The practical elements of this course take place in a training environment with elements of overhead support, multicompartment containment, cable termination at wall outlet module and patch panel termination in a cabinet. Testing of cabling installed during the exercise allows delegates to validate their work and, if necessary, understand how to rectify faults. Practical exercises are conducted as teamwork allowing delegates those new to cabling to observe effective coordination of effort.
