September 7, 2001 The arm of the Quebec government-sanctioned organization charged with regulating the construction industry has included American Access Technologies (www.aatk.com) zone-cabling cabinets into its training program, American Access recently announced.

"Since our training focuses on market trends and the latest technology, we believe American Access's products should be part of our curriculum," said Denis Leduc, special advisor to the Fraternite Inter-Provinciale des Ouvriers en Electricite (FIPOE), a brotherhood of inter-province electrical workers.

FIPOE, along with employers and the Quebec government, make up the Construction Commission of Quebec. The CCQ, which trains construction workers, generates competency cards and administers benefits to works, has identified a new trade—network cabling specialist. CCQ will conduct the training of these professionals incorporating American Access zone-cabling cabinets, Leduc said.

Leduc wrote course specifications and designed its training lab. He said FIPOE has partnered with BICSI in the endeavor. BICSI is supplying the reference material that will be translated into French for the CCQ course.

"I am dedicated to this project," Leduc said. "Zone cabling is done in the industry, and we want it being done the proper way."
