SYSTIMAX BusinessPartners have trained SYSTIMAX Professionals and staff who have proven their knowledge in the latest cabling technology through rigorous certification training. The SYSTIMAX Certification is a dependable measure of competency that can be relied on.
The goal of the SYSTIMAX SCS Training Program is to:
- Make responses more competitive by design and innovation
- Reduce costly design and installation errors
- Provide the client with the very latest in design and installation techniques
- Improve the ability to interface with customers & consultants on a technical level
- Differentiate your company from others due to training commitment
- Help ensure the design and installation is to the SYSTIMAX required standard for registration/warranty
- Improve employee awareness and motivation
The SYSTIMAX Training syllabus includes courses specific or related directly to the solution, it is only part of a much larger CommScope training program offering access to other solution training. The Technical and Business training offers access to thousands of IT and Business skills based courses associated with our solutions.
With so much useful training available, the ideal way to minimise costs is using the SYSTIMAX Training Passport, which offers unlimited access to the CommScope online courses and discounts to most classroom and Technical and Business courses. (See the Training Passport page for more details)
The classroom-based SYSTIMAX Installation and Maintenance (I&M) course and the online SYSTIMAX Design and Engineering (D&E) course provide the necessary installation and design certification training for SYSTIMAX product ranges to support the warranty. iPatch software support requires an additional qualification in the form of the Certified iPatch Support Specialist (CISS) course. These courses require re-certification in order to maintain the ability to support SYSTIMAX warranties, I&M and D&E every 2 years and CISS every year.
Design & Engineering (D&E)
Ordering 'SP3321 Design & Engineering' already has the SP3300 SYSTIMAX Overview material integrated and since 2010 automatically adds the SP3360 SYSTIMAX 360 Solutions course Free of Charge to the student's account. ALL must be completed successfully in order to support and warranty sites for Design and Engineering. This is considered a 'Design Foundation' course and is the recommended prerequisite for many of the online specialty courses. Currently to recertify the D&E re-take SP3360.
Installation and Maintenance (I&M)
From January 2011 a 2-day classroom course, ND3361 Installation and Maintenance will be introduced, replacing and including the original ND3341 and the additional ND3360 previously required. I&M will include training on all SYSTIMAX products copper and fiber through to installation of iPatch Hardware. To recertify the I&M course either re-attend the ND3361 or take the SP3360 online.
New 'In-House' Installation and Maintenance (I&M)
From January 2011 a new FC3361 (Flexible Course) version of the I&M will be available to BusinessPartners. This will allow companies who have suitably qualified staff to apply to the CommScope Infrastructure Academy as a Partner ATA (Authorized Trainer Assessor). Qualification requires: full D&E, I&M and local CommScope approval. We will then enable a unique Flexible Course Facility (FCF) area of this site to provide the ATA with training materials, student management and student training progress. This allows your company to train students in the I&M without having to attend formal classrooms. Upon completion, full I&M certification is recognised and provided by the CommScope Infrastructure Academy.
Certified iPatch Support Specialist (CISS)
Required for iPatch Software support, the pre-requisite for BusinessPartners is the online SP5500 iPatch Design and Engineering then the classroom PC Lab based course ND5510 Certified iPatch Support Specialist (CISS). Recertification of the CISS is required annually by taking the online SP5510R CISS recertification course.
Authorized SYSTIMAX BusinessPartners must ensure that they have sufficiently trained personnel to support warranty applications for the appropriate solution. The CommScope BusinessPartner locator, used by customers to select BusinessPartners, also shows training and qualifications.
The other courses in the syllabus are designed to support specific product and solutions requirements. Depending upon your experience we recommend you take the SP3321 as a foundation prior to taking the Specialist courses but the detailed course descriptions will help you make this decision. Each course is recognized by BICSI and carries BICSI Continuing Education Credits.
Notations: SP = Self Paced format - ND = Classroom - FC = Flexible Course
