With the March grand opening of a new BICSI-certified technology training center in Newton, NC, Rexel (www.rexelusa.com) now has four such centers operational in the United States.
Newton, in Catawba County, "already is rich with technologies in manufacturing," explained Dru Heldman, datacom area manager for Rexel. "This new resource is a great boost for economic development in Catawba and the surrounding region of North Carolina."
A permanent site, the Newton BICSI training center includes a shell cabling infrastructure pathway with an entrance facility, telecommunications room racking, and main crossconnect and termination equipment.
"We have a schedule of BICSI classes set for the year," said Heldman. "We'll add classes for fiber optics, outside plant, and residential structured cabling."
Rexel's other BICSI-certified datacom training centers are in Linthicum, MD; Chantilly, VA; and Denver, CO.
