I have been working as a PC tech for several years now and would like to learn another topic.

I want to learn all there is to know ;) about home/office wiring (cat5, phone, ect.).

Does anyone know of a school or company that trains in this particular area?

My main goal is to be able to offer customers the option of wiring there business/home with an ethernet network.

Any help would be much apreciated.

Thanks :thumbsup:

This a an international site so i think its best you state where u from and what specific skills u looking at to upgrade. Common ones would be basci networking courses like Network plus or N+ which is internationally recognise from compTIA. The others would be CISCO , MCSE etc...

I've done this several times. Here's my suggestion:

Go buy a cordless drill with a 3/4" bit for wood, and another for concrete.

Seriously, the actual wiring techniques vary according to the construction. In the USA it's easy to wire the story just above the basement - or just below the attic. You just run the wires in the basement or attic - then punch holes through the studs. Then, all you've gotta do is figure out where the wires came through and cut some holes for the receptacles.

For multilevel structures it's a bit harder - since you've gotta get through the studs in the middle. This usually involves a bit of work with drywall, spackling paste, and a bit of paint. Usually it's easier (in these situations) to go wireless.

In my case, my wife want's a cable TV connection in out kitchen (in the middle level) - so I'm gonna use the cut and patch approach for the TV.

shiday,

The area you are looking to get into is known as BICSI. Here is their organizational website. Get in touch with them and they will direct you to accredited training that is recognized industry wide. Good Luck
