August 31, 2001 CommScope (www.commscope.com) and The Siemon Co. (www.siemon.com) have opened a jointly operated training facility in Sparks, NV. The two companies offer a suite of cabling systems marketed under the Vision brand name.

According to C.K. Siemon, vice president of reseller services with Siemon, the Vision solution has created significant demand for certified installer training. "This new facility significantly increase the number of classes we can offer each month, which should alleviate any backlog in training scheduling," he says. In addition to supplementing the capacity of the existing training facilities in Watertown, CT and Miami, FL, the Nevada location is expected to be more convenient for installers located in the Western states.

The Vision certified installer program is intended for system designers and installers. It covers industry standards, requirements for designing and installing copper and fiber cabling systems, design exercises, and hands-on training. It includes a final exam. Students who pass qualify for 25 credit hours toward renewal of BICSI's Registered Communications Distribution Designer designation.
