Ventoux offering RCDD preparation courses in compressed format
In-depth review of the BICSI TDMM’s 12 core chapters are now available as a 3-day RCDD preparation course.
Beginning in May, Ventoux Learning Network will make its entire 12-course RCDD prep series available as a 3-day training session. To this point, Ventoux’s offerings have been instructor-led online courses available a-la-carte, each covering a single chapter of BICSI’s Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual. After launching the RCDD prep series in January with 5 courses available a-la-carte, Ventoux more recently added 7 courses to the mix, for a total of 12 courses.
David Cranmer, who heads Ventoux Learning Network and delivers the courses, said, “One comment I’ve heard from potential students is, ‘Even though I like your online format, I really like to get away from the office and go somewhere to take a review class.’
“I have a solution to that dilemma,” Cranmer continued. “Beginning in May I will offer my 12 individual core chapters in a 3-day format. The classes will be 8 hours per day, with time allowed for breaks and lunch/dinner, with a minimum of 2 students required. Now if you want to rent a hotel room on the beach or a cabin in the mountains, you can still get away and have access to the complete 12-course series in a compressed format.” The 3-day course, like the a-la-carte courses, will be instructor-led online.
The 12 courses Ventoux offers—a-la-carte and now also combined in a 3-day format—are based on the 12 chapters of the TDMM on which 80 percent of the RCDD-exam questions are based. They are:
- Chapter 1—Principles of Transmission
- Chapter 2—Electromagnetic Compatibility
- Chapter 3—Telecommunications Spaces
- Chapter 4—Backbone Distribution Systems
- Chapter 5—Horizontal Distribution Systems
- Chapter 6—ITS Cables and Connecting Hardware
- Chapter 7—Firestop Systems
- Chapter 8—Bonding and Grounding
- Chapter 9—Power Distribution
- Chapter 10—Telecommunications Administration
- Chapter 11—Field Testing of Structured Cabling
- Chapter 15—Data Networks
