This book serves as a comprehensive
body of knowledge covering the tasks and responsibilities of a Cabling and
Infrastructure Technician (CIT). Built around the CIT
job task analysis
defined by subject matter experts, this book covers the essential tools,
equipment, principles, and best practices required to successfully install,
terminate, and test the infrastructure required to support integrated technology
systems. Topics such as jobsite safety, electrical theory, and cable properties
are just a few of the critical knowledge areas and skill sets addressed which
are necessary to succeed in the rapidly growing technology integration industry.
This book is designed to help individuals prepare for the CEDIA Certified Cabling
and Infrastructure Technician
exam and is also an ideal reference to accompany on-the-job training
or more formal education programs.
Mastery of the CIT body of knowledge
and related skills is foundational for a variety of careers related to systems
integration and is the first step towards achieving the CEDIA Integrated Systems
(IST) certification and further
specialties. This book is succeeded by the CEDIA Integrated Systems Technician
book (avaible January 2021) which expands on the foundational knowledge
of the CIT and explores the specific applications related to installation and
integration of residential technology equipment and systems.
The Cabling Infrastructure Technician book provides the foundation on which to base more
advanced study, real world experience, or higher industry certifications.
