David Cranmer of Ventoux Learning Network reports a better-than-anticipated response to Ventoux’s offering of instructor-led online (ILO) courses preparing student to take the BICSI Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) exam. As such, Ventoux is seeking input concerning the possibility of making additional courses available. Each course available through Ventoux covers one chapter of the Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual 13th edition—the document upon which the RCDD exam is based.

When launching the courses, Cranmer explained, “I’ve selected chapters from the TDMM which many students find difficult, so that a BICSI RCDD candidate can choose what to review.” Currently, individual classes cover the following TDMM chapters.

  • Chapter 1: Principles of Transmission
  • Chapter 2: Electromagnetic Compatibility
  • Chapter 7: Firestop Systems
  • Chapter 8: Bonding and Grounding
  • Chapter 9: Power Distribution

Cranmer recently explained, “I’ve had several people ask when I was going to add the remainder of the chapters in the 13th edition of the TDMM to my a-la-carte selection.” In response, Ventoux is hosting a one-question survey to determine the overall desire for such an expansion.

The survey asks simply whether or not respondents would like to see all chapters in the TDMM 13th edition offered in a-la-carte format.
