The Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) qualification is only given to professionals who demonstrate the highest standards of expertise in the area of structured cabling systems and infrastructure.
To achieve the RCDD credential, candidates must pass a rigorous exam which encompasses the entirety of BICSI’s Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual.
BICSI is the worldwide association for cabling design and installation professionals. RCDD’s must commit to strict education assessments and to constantly update their knowledge through constant cooperation with network cabling London transport systems professionals.
With an RCDD professional, you are guaranteed to work with someone who has reached a global standard in the integration, design and management of telecommunication systems and the associated data cabling, fibre optic cabling, AV cabling and CCTV cabling
Here are some excellent reasons to have an RCDD accredited professional:
