Brooklyn college and non-profit group train cabling installers

Nov. 16, 2001
November 16, 2001 Currently teaching entry-level installers, New York City Technical College plans to train higher-level installers and technicians.

Tuesday, November 20 will mark the first public graduation of Brooklyn Networks, a new training program designed to move New Yorkers into careers as telecommunications installers and technicians. Currently the program offers the Installer Level 1 curriculum from BICSI. Brooklyn Networks will soon offer Installer Level 2 and Technician training as well, the group says.

Brooklyn Networks is a partnership between Brooklyn Workforce Innovations (BWI--www.bwiny.org) and New York City Technical College. The college provides the hands-on skills training; BWI is a non-profit organization and an affiliate of the 23-year-old Fifth Avenue Committee, a community-development corporation.

On the 20th, the college will host an open house, which will include comments from current students about their new skills and from former students about their new jobs.
