August 8, 2016 at 7:16 pm  •  Posted in Data Communications  •  0 Comments

Today’s technological wizardry is a far cry from the flip phones and tape decks of yesteryear. In this day and age, we chew up and spit out data at an alarming rate. Before we know it, the Internet of Things (IoT) will completely link the physical and digital worlds. Life, business, and the data center will never be the same.

As our world progresses, the information and communication technology (ICT) industry evolves along with it. For ICT contractors, continuing education is one way to raise the bar and stay in the know on changing industry standards.

The Lesson:

Sorry to break it to you, but school’s not out for summer. In this blog post, you’ll learn about BICSI’s Continuing Education Program and how to earn BICSI Continuing Education Credits. Let’s begin the lesson, shall we?

BICSI’s Credentialing Program

BICSI’s Continuing Education (CEC) Program creates a new standard of knowledge around ICT designs and installs. Those who make the cut must continue to set the bar high. BICSI candidates are expected to follow strict standards of conduct and pass a series of rigorous exams to earn professional designations. Candidates must also commit to continuing education.


Graybar’s BICSI On-Demand Webinars were designed to help you get up to speed on emerging technology and industry best practice. In these videos, you’ll learn about leading-edge products and technology used in building intelligence and energy-efficiency applications.
