March 17, 2009--Information transport system association BICSI is offering a new credential--Registered Information Transport Professional (RITP)--to be released next year, that will allow individuals with formal education and industry-related qualifications to obtain a BICSI information transport systems (ITS) credential.

"The RITP represents a major step for BICSI in clarifying the roles and qualifications of the ITS professional," says Jerry Bowman, RCDD, BICSI's NxtGEN committee chairman. "Having this professional credential will enable sales, educational, and management professionals to proudly instill the same confidence in their industry knowledge and professionalism that RCDDs have for decades."

The application process and requirements for the RITP credential will be announced shortly; however, interested professionals can get a head start on the process by completing the ITS Fundamentals exam available online through BICSI CONNECT. Also available online are five courses designed to prepare applicants for the ITS Fundamentals exam.

"This new credential opens the doors to the next generation of information transport professionals," says BICSI President Ed Donelan, RCDD. "We are excited to offer this opportunity to our existing members and credential holders in the information transport systems industry, and also to bring new talent into our organization. It's going to be the added exchange of knowledge and education across many levels of the industry that will help us advance our members' business success and expand our profession's reach globally."
