Anritsu’s Latest Certified Training Courses Offer BICSI CE Credits


Attendees of Instructor-led DAS and Fiber Test Classes Receive Credits Necessary to Maintain Valuable Industry Designation

Morgan Hill, CA – September 30, 2016 – Anritsu Company announces that three of its instructor-led training classes now offer BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International) Continuing Education Credits (CEC). Field technicians and engineers will earn mandatory training credits required to maintain their BICSI designation upon the successful completion of the Anritsu Passive DAS, Active DAS or Fiber Optic & OTDR courses.

Anritsu is one of a select group of third-party training providers who can offer BICSI CECs for its courses. The designation continues to position the Anritsu training program as the preeminent curriculum for field professionals responsible for deploying, installing, and maintaining today’s communications networks.

Professionals who gain certification from the Fiber Optic & OTDR course will receive seven BICSI CECs, while they will earn 21 and 18 BICSI CECs, respectively, for successful completion of the Passive DAS and Active DAS certification courses. A signed certificate must be issued to each individual who completes the course to receive the CECs. Only BICSI credential holders can receive the BICSI CECs.

Both the Active DAS Certification and Passive DAS Certification are three-day courses that teach the theory and practical considerations and procedures of assembling, installing and testing Distributed Antenna Systems. Participants who pass these rigorous courses will learn how to use test instruments to conduct measurements, interpret and analyze information to locate and correct problems, and have a sound strategy for consistent documentation and efficient, effective workflow. The purpose and true value of the courses are that they teach participants how to do the job correctly the first time to avoid costly rework.

The Anritsu Fiber Optic & OTDR Certification is an intense, hands-on, one-day training focused on fiber optic and OTDR theory, technology and practical applications. The class combines lecture and hands-on lab experience using the Anritsu Access Master MT9083A2 OTDR.
