What is RCDD?
The Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) certification is globally recognized within the telecommunications industry, as a designation of the exceptional qualifications and expertise of the individual, in the design, integration and implementation of telecommunications systems and their related infrastructure components. The RCDD designation is becoming ever more recognized...and required...by many private and state organizations.
Who is it for?
The RCDD certification is for those individuals who have a minimum of 5-years of design experience, who are actively involved in network infrastructure design, or working directly with architects, engineers, network managers, or other professionals in the design, implementation or integration of network infrastructures, alarm systems or security systems.
What will this do for me?
As the telecommunications industry expands, the RCDD designation will become ever more requested and required to submit bids for private, state, school or government contracts. You will acquire a wealth of knowledge from our interactive classroom structure, as we cover all 24 chapters of the 12th edition TDM manuals, including Codes, Standards and Regulations, Horizontal and Backbone distribution, TRs, ERs, through Administration and Special Design Considerations.
