BICSI issues first telecom-education license in Australia

Nov. 20, 2001
November 20, 2001 Freshwater Global Institute now provides Telecom Cabling Installation Program classes as well as a distribution-design curriculum.

BICSI ( has granted a

training license to Freshwater Global Institute in Harbord, New South

Wales, Australia. It is the first such license that BICSI has granted

to an organization in Australia.

"We recognize the need for global relationships to fulfill the demand

for BICSI training," said Richard Dunfee, BICSI's training manager.

"The demand is twofold: international membership is growing at 120%

annually, and more international telecommunications projects are

specifying RCDDs and BICSI-registered installers."

Freshwater actually obtained two licenses: a multi-site cabling

installation license and a distribution design license. The

installation license allows Freshwater to deliver BICSI's three-level

Telecommunications Cabling Installation Program at up to five fixed

sites. The program includes Installer Level 1, Installer Level 2, and

Technician registrations. The Distribution Design Program license

includes three core courses in the BICI distribution-design curriculum:

DD100, DD102, and DD200. Both licenses allow Freshwater to deliver

courses anywhere outside of North America.

BICSI requires that only BICSI-certified instructors teach licensed
