BICSI Technician

BICSI ITS Technician candidates are tested on their ability to understand and apply a comprehensive collection of installation-specific information. After you have acquired your Technician designation, you will be able to:

  • Successfully lead an installation group or team using project management skills.
  • Perform advanced testing and troubleshooting for both copper and optical fiber installations.
  • Discuss and evaluate numerous specific applications of ITS cabling installation.
  • Make recommendations based on applicable codes, standards, and best practices.
  • Implement the job plan and scope of work as well as perform retrofits and upgrades for existing infrastructure.

Experience: Individuals preparing to sit for the ITS Technician exam must possess at least three years of current and verifiable ITS industry installation experience.

Knowledge and Skill Requirements: Participants sitting for the ITS Technician exam must be able to distinguish between different colors and possess manual dexterity to complete fine motor tasks. It is recommended to attend a TE350: BICSI ITS Technician Training course as well as independent or group study of BICSI’s Information Transport Systems Installation Methods Manual, (ITSIMM).

Exam: The ITS Technician exam is currently based on the ITSIMM and is a two-part exam, hands-on and written. To become a BICSI ITS Technician, you must successfully pass both parts.

Hands-On Exam: The hands-on performance exam consists of completing six assigned tasks to industry standards, within a 20-minute-per-task time limit. Proctors will give pass/fail results on site.

Written Exam:
The written exam is closed-book and contains 150 questions in multiple choice and true/false format. If an individual does not hold both the ITS Copper and Optical Fiber Installer 2 credentials or an Installer 2 credential, the written exam will have an additional 30 questions (180 questions total). Questions are taken from all chapters of the BICSI ITSIMM, and are both knowledge- and application-based. 2½ hours are allowed to complete the written exam.

Renewal Information:
In order to maintain your credential, there are required benchmarks to accomplish during each three year registration period. You must show proof of completion of a minimum of 18 BICSI-approved Technician Continuing Education Credits (CECs). Additionally, you must complete and receive sign-off from a supervisor or qualified witness on each of the tasks listed in your OJT booklet (for first-time renewal only). When you complete and submit your renewal form and fee to BICSI, on or before your credential expiration date, you must also include the above benchmarks.

TE350: BICSI ITS Technician Training (5 days)
