IN225: BICSI Installer 2, Copper® Training

Prerequisites & Preparation

Students of this class may wish to first attend IN101 or gain equivalent experience
and knowledge through on-the-job-training. BICSI recommends that all students who
take this class have at least one year of verifiable ICT industry installation experience
within the last five years. For all individuals who plan to take the exam after the class,
this one year of experience is a requirement for the exam, not a recommendation.

The skills in this course build on the basic skills and knowledge that an installer is
likely to acquire during the first year on the job. For this reason, students will be
expected to have basic knowledge of copper cabling media and know how to perform the following skills prior to attending class:

+ Install a pull string
+ Pull horizontal cable through a continuous conduit run
+ Perform IDC terminations on a 66 block, 110 block, LSA block and a BIX block
+ Terminate coaxial cable using an F connector
+ Test 4-pair cable with a pair scanner

If you do not know how to perform any of these tasks or feel that you may not be fully
prepared for this course, BICSI recommends that you complete the IN101 course
first. IN101 covers these skills, as well as other foundational knowledge that will
help you to succeed in IN225.

In addition, BICSI strongly recommends reading the ITSIMM before coming to class
and/or taking the exam. For students who plan to take the exam, BICSI recommends
that examinees spend at least 50 hours studying the ITSIMM. Order the ITSIMM
